Hi! One "happy" day Firefox suggested me to secure my privacy, I clicked "yes" and since this day I need to enter for all my accounts all logs and paswords each time I open Firefox. Despite Firefox autocomplete logs and passwords I waste a lot of time for it especialy with two factors veryfication. How I can roll this function back to old happy time when google and social networks remember my browser and I just open it in one click? Changing settings on privacy and security page doesn't help. Please help me cause i can't find any relevant information anywhere.

Hi

Are you possibly using "Clear history when Firefox closes" ?

Detail like websites remembering you (log you in automatically) is stored in a cookie.

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you:

  • create a cookie allow exception with the proper protocol (https:// or http://) to make a website remember you

You can check that you aren't clearing important cookies.

  • using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" keeps cookies with an allow exception
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear cookies clears all cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Exceptions/Permissions"
