Most of you might have known the feature provided by Google. Using your id you can save your search and use other services offered by Google. I’ll do it regularly. I am using a dual boot (FC5, XP) machine. I was logged into my Google account using Firefox on my linux. Without signing out, I closed my browser and rebooted to Windows. When I logged in to linux again and opened Firefox, I saw that im logged in to my Google account. I could not believe it. I tried it multiple times. It was happening repeatedly. But this does not happen in Windows.

Seems like the session information is serialized by firefox in linux and it is used subsequently. This happens only with Google and not with any other sites like Yahoo, Hotmail….

Can anybody explain why??
