Not in my testing. They're cookies without an expiry date, so they (should) die when the browser closes.
For persistent storage, this localStorage polyfill seems to work well:

Nice!

Firefox 14 tells me "TypeError: setting a property that has only a getter, key: function(n) {" when loading the script. Any ideas?
