Why do I have to sign in to gmail every time I open my browser now? I have 3 accounts saved on tabs. This is also true of other accounts saved on Tabs. Why is this happening it seems to have happened after an update.? Most inconvenient not impressed with this at all thinking of reverting to Chrome.
