Sometimes Firefox logs out of all accounts. What should I do to fix this?

This happens very often. All the accounts data is still saved but I have to log in again (this problem is not related to using VPN)

When does this happen? When you close the browser?

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

Idk when it happens, but probably when I close the browser. So I changed settings that you wrote, I'll wait for the new failure. Also sorry for my English (it isn't my native language)
