I am using firefox 4 as my default browser, but this is probably file system related. I will describe the problem and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction?

Today I was using the browser as normal, all sign ins worked as usual, everything was normal. Then when I got back home tonight and opened it, none of my saved usernames/passwords would autofill/auto-signin anymore. I am guessing this must be something filesystem related, and it only happened this one time seemingly at random, so I don't think it is a firefox 4 bug. In fact, I think it might be something to do with suspending the system before I left? Anyone have any idea?

Is this related to Firefox Sync? If not, check that Firefox didn't somehow create a new profile here. – Yi Jiang Feb 25 '11 at 8:14
No it has not created a new profile and I don't use sync. That's why I think it might be filesystem related :) – RolandiXor Feb 25 '11 at 19:18

Some how it seems to have been fixed, so I'm not sure if it was a bug in a nightly build? Whatever the case is, it seems fixed for most websites now.
