New firefox doesn't automatically sign me out from yahoo when closed

I usually save my open tabs when I close firefox. If I'm signed in yahoo I am automatically signed out and at firefox restart I am at the yahoo sign in page. After updating to ff 36 I find myself logged in yahoo at ff restart.

I have unticked the option to keep me signed in at the yahoo start-up page, so this is a very serious thing security-wise. Imagine I am in an internet cafe checking my emails and there is a power cut. I have no way to sign out and the next user will find yahoo signed in to my account.

I don't want to have firefox deleting cookies every time I use it, or checking every browser I am using of what the settings are. And even if I do, it still won't resolve the issue posed in the above scenario.

Any advice plz?

Hello lascetic,

I think you could try reviewing your settings in the Password Manager and the Permissions Manager for a start - there you should be able to set the storing of information in a way that suits your personal preferences.

BTW, don't forget you can sync your settings across all instances of Firefox that you use with Sync

I have ff set to never remember passwords and in permissions yahoo is set to block "store password". That's the confusion.

No one else has this problem?

Hi Lascetic,

Most internet cafes and other public internet providers should wipe the previous user's data when somebody new logs in to the machine, including their browser data.

Otherwise, users would be able to see the full browsing history, downloaded files, saved passwords, etc from whoever was using the machine before them.

If you're ever using Firefox on a public computer, you can use Firefox's forget button to protect your privacy: Forget button - quickly delete your browsing history on Firefox

Thanks,

Jayelbe

I agree but they rarely do. I have many times been to cafes and found email accounts still logged into the previous user.

I know that, but if there is a power cut then there is no time to do that.

There are maybe other ways and thanks for trying to help, but why did they change something that were working ok and easier (not having to do anything to sign out apart from closing the browser). Yahoo has already the option to keep one logged in, but like this mozilla chooses to ignore it and force us to stay logged in, ain't it?

Oh yes, sorry! You mentioned power cuts in your eariier comment - sorry for neglecting that.

Using private browsing at the internet cafe will mean if there's a power cut, whoever uses the PC after you won't be able to log in to Yahoo mail using your details. As an added advantage, your web history won't be saved either.

I wasn't aware of any changes to how cookies are handled in Firefox 36 (I haven't noticed any changes in the release notes or Bugzilla). Perhaps this is a change at Yahoo's end?

That's a good idea, thanks.

To be honest, I'm also not sure. But somehow it started after the last ff update. And yahoo "keep me signed in" doesn't make sense if it is a change at yahoo's end.

Also, I want to make clear that I am not one of the moaners that every time something changes they come here and complain. I really appreciate ff being there offered for free, with all its tweaks and functions. Otherwise I would switch to another browser, but I really like ff and I have set it up in a way that it feels safe to me. I just happen to travel a lot to India, for months every time and I have to use this internet shops with old computers in many cases unsafe and a lot of power cuts! Just reporting it in case it is a bug.

Can anyone please confirm that they have the same issue after ff 36? Cause it's the same with new ff 36.0.1. Thank you.
