Why did Firefox suddenly start losing my login cookies every day?

I recently wiped my OS partition, installed Windows 7 64-bit and, as a result, had to reinstall all my software. Overall I'm liking it, but there's one thing that's started up since the upgrade that has me annoyed and confused. Every day, all of my login cookies disappear. Message boards, Metafilter, e-mail, I have to log in to everything anew.
I don't have any particularly strict security settings in Firefox, and it's not even that all my cookies are disappearing - when I check the folder, I see cookies from sites I visited a week ago. It's just logins. So I'm confused.
