facebook/firefox won't play nice together

This week I changed over to my new Macbook and upgraded my firefox to 3.6. I did not mean to do this just as Facebook decided to rearrange everything, but isn't that always the way?

Since the change, I cannot stay logged in at facebook. If I am playing Farmville, I get to click on exactly 2 links before getting the "you must sign in" screen again.

Every time I DO sign in, firefox asks to remember my password, and I say yes. Then I check my saved passwords, and it is there. But if I check after being signed out again, it has in fact NOT remembered my password. Facebook is NOT listed as an excluded site for saving passwords. As far as I can tell, this problem is Facebook specific.

Before I try a lot of install/uninstall and other trouble shooting, I thought I would ask if anyone else has had this problem since the big Facebook transmogrification.

Any input. fellow travellers?

(Yes, it does leave me signed in in Chrome, and in Safari. But I use these to keep different parts of my life separate. And sadly, neither of them work well with Farmville which, aside from keeping touch with a few folks, is the only reason I go to facebook.)
