I keep getting signed out of Google
I keep getting signed out of my Google account whenever I close Firefox. I switched the Enhanced Tracking Protection to Standard, and I do not delete my cookies when I close Firefox. I even tried to disable the Purge Trackers option but this didn't help either. I have some dev-tools extensions installed + Adblock and Decentraleyes. It does not solve my problem if a disable them too. Would really appreciate anyone's insight.

When you close a Browser it logs you out. So unless you have AutoFill/AutoSave enabled for quick login closing Browser ends the sessions. This is for security purpose of Browser protection itself.
Okay that is great, but I don't want to sign in again and again every time I open the browser. Is there a way to disable this? This problem started to occur 2-3 weeks ago.

Dropa, this is only true if the Firefox user has "[v] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked in Settings when by default it does not.
I have found out that when I log into my Google account the SSID cookies are set to expire at the end of the session. If I change them manually I remain logged in even after I close Firefox. Is there a setting I can change in Google or Firefox that changes this behaviour, so that I do not have to change the expiration date of cookies?
If you leave the tabs open and let Session Restore restore the tabs then you should still be logged in as in this case the cookies are stored in sessionstore.jsonlz4. You may have to create a cookie allow exception to keep the cookies.
Note that the settings in "Clear history when Firefox closes" prevail over "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" and you keep cookies with an allow exception.
