Detail like websites remembering you and log you in automatically is stored in cookies, so make sure you aren't clearing important cookies.

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you.

  • create a cookie allow exception with the proper protocol (https:// or http://) to make a website remember you

You can check that you aren't clearing important cookies.

  • using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to clear cookies keeps cookies with an allow exception
    in 102+ version toggling this setting makes changes to the "Clear history when Firefox closes" settings and those settings prevail
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" in Firefox 102+ honors exceptions and keeps cookies with an allow exception, previous versions removed all cookies

Make sure to keep the "Site settings".

  • clearing "Site settings" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Exceptions"
  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":

That is a security for Browser protections. If you have AutoFill/AutoSave set it will remember the login to login the next time your at the page. When you close the Browser it logs out of all accounts until the next time you login then the Auto feature will have saved to re-login without having to retype the logins.

Dropa, perhaps you are experiencing this because You have set it so cookies will be cleared when Firefox is closed.

Thank you for your replies. I will try some suggestions though "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is already unchecked. Didn't do this a couple of weeks ago - can't figure out what has changed in the meantime. Firefox used to be my favourite browser, but it has become the most problematic of all the browsers i use now

You need to check the settings in "Clear history when Firefox closes" as those prevail ("Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" actually makes changes to the settings for Cookies and Offline Data).
