Firefox keeps logging out me from all accounts

Since about a week Firefox logs me out of all accounts when I close the browser. I checked the many threads here and have done everything including: Made sure it's not private browsing Made sure the history is not set to clear at exit Cookie settings are in default mode Remember history is on This problem started without me changing any settings on the browser. But I did a fresh install too, and that after clearing the Appdata too so that the install is absolutely fresh. It still continues. Facebook, Gmail, Yandex, and all other accounts are autocratically logged off which is absolutely frustrating. Can any Firefox developer please find a solution beyond "make sure the .... " etc. ?

Profile data can be removed or not recorded in 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.

Just to make sure: Your ‘logged-in’ status is stored in special cookies. If the cookie is removed, you are logged out.


You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

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.
