I'd like to help you. What I do is :
(Go to frame 0) turn off bones if they are active. Ctrl R
Then reorient the bones where you like.
Then activate them again. R
At least, that works for me.
Have you scaled / stretched the bones at all? If so, that would be a problem. You would have to use rest length to do that. Better yet use the bone tools for that. I would suggest "tip move" because unlike rest length, it moves the child bones along with it and also it does this without changing the rest length of it's child bones.
