Why do I have to log in to sites where I have asked to be remembered every time I open firefix?

I have firefox on my laptop and on my desktop. On my laptop, when I start up, my tabs open to facebook, gmail and my other email portal and all are logged in and ready to go. On my desktop I have to log in every one of them every time. I have checked the boxes that say keep me logged in but they never do that. I want to fix this but I don't know how.

* Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.
* Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
* In [[Private Browsing]] mode all cookies are session cookies that expire if that session is ended, so websites won't remember you.
* Do not use [[Clear Recent History]] to clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences"
Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.
