So for a while now on my Mac and on my Windows 10 machine Firefox keeps forgetting my cookies. So I have to signing back in its very annoying to say the least. I have checked the settings and FireFox says I have over 1GB of saved Cookie data. I also do not have "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" selected. I am at a loss to figure this 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.

and whatever else you want.

Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
