Why does Firefox not log me in to Google accounts only?

I have Firefox remembering my passwords and I have checked the "keep me logged in " box in my gmail, g+, and calendar pages, but every time I start up from standby or shut down, I have to fill in both ID and passwords manually for all google accounts.

First, let's clear things up: when you save a password in Firefox, it's stored in your computer, and isn't shared or uploaded to anywhere. It's also encrypted so only Firefox can read it (i.e. use it to auto complete passwords), and keep it away from the prying eyes of malware, viruses and whatnot. Saving your password to Firefox is completely safe and that password will only be available to someone who users your Firefox profile. If you want to have different Firefox profiles for different users, please read "http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles" On the other hand, when you ask a site to "log you in automatically", it has absolutely nothing to do with Firefox's password manager.

Thank you for the explanation, but why has the failure to stay logged in to my google accts coincide with the Firefox upgrade. Are you saying that it is completely a problem with my Google accounts?

I suspect that some websites have a problem recognizing cookies that the website set in the previous version of Firefox, hence my recommendation that you clear all your Google cookies and allow those cookies to be set once again.
