I've looked at a number of answers to this similar problem and none of them have helped. I never had this issue with Chrome or Safari, just Firefox. Whenever I close Firefox, it makes me sign in to sync again and re-log in to all my sites all over again.

Chosen solution

Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file.

Open the Firefox Disk Images file and drag the Firefox application to the Applications folder on your hard drive. You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the Disk Images, but instead drag it out of the DMG folder.


You may want to check for multiple profiles and cleanup on unused profiles.
