When does this happen? When you leave the site? When you close Firefox? When you shutdown the computer? Any old time?

Your login status is stored in special cookies in your profile.

Profile data can be removed or not recorded several ways;

  • 1) Running Firefox in Private Mode (nothing is recorded)
  • 2) Privacy settings; (In the address bar, type about:preferences#privacy<enter>)
  • 3) Many disk cleaners and anti-virus type programs can remove data from browsers. Open their settings and have them leave the browsers alone.
  • 4) Mal-ware.

Happens intermittently after shutting computer down. Not using private mode Privacy settings set to remember. Do not track in private mode only. Anti virus settings same as before Anti virus and malware scans show no issues No settings changed, no programs added. The only thing that changes was version of Firefox

There are two extensions I would disable temporarily to see if that is affecting the cookies:

  1. CookieCuller Version
  2. Maybe: Webroot

May I ask about any reasons to be on ESR versus the Release version of Firefox?

Ok, I'll try disabling those extensions, but they were in use on previous version with no problems.

When I upgraded to the latest version of Firefox I started having the problem with being logged out from various sites. Searching through help one of the solutions was install a previous version. The link given took me to the ESR version. Unfortunately the problem is with either ESR or release version.

Ah that makes sense. Cook Culler is actually no longer supported in Firefox 57+.

I see that in Webroot's documentation that the extension is used for " blocking protection against malicious websites, realtime anti-phishing protection, and safety ratings when using search engines." and that you might be able to disable certain features within the extension to see if this might have an affect.
