Why doesn't Firefox for Mobile log me out of Amazon when I exit Firefox?

Posted

When I start a fresh browsing session using Firefox for Windows, and I navigate to Amazon's site, I am NOT logged in to Amazon.

But when I start a fresh browsing session using Firefox Mobile, and I navigate to Amazon, I AM logged in to Amazon.

I have done the following: [Settings/Privacy/Clear Private Data/Clear on Exit (checked)] and [Settings/Privacy/Logins/Remember passwords (unchecked)].

Is this a bug or am I missing something? It seems to me to be a significant security issue.
