Why Do I have To Be In Private Browsing Just To Sign Into Google?!!

Posted

I'm Not That Paranoid! I'm At Home On My Own Computer! It's Very Annoying To Have To Constantly Re-Enter Usernames And Pass Words To Sites Frequent. Gmail, Facebook, Ect. I Like To Stay Signed Into Google, But When I Try To Do So I Get This Garbage!

I Have My Cookies Active, I've Cleared The Cache...What Is Going On?!! And Navigating Between Windows With Multiple Open Tabs Is Tedious!

Chosen solution

Hello,

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache. Note: This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to. To clear cache and cookies do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > History > Clear recent history or (if no Firefox button is shown) go to Tools > Clear recent history.
  2. Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
  3. Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
  4. From the details list, check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else.
  5. Now click the Clear now button.

Further information can be found in the Clear your cache, history and other personal information in Firefox article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Thank you.

My Thanks To You For You Speedy Response! I Can Now Log In And Stay Logged In! I Didn't Even Realize That Cookies Could Be Corrupt. So With That Information, I Opened Up My Cookie Manager Deleted The Cookies Of The Sites That Were Giving Me Problems. I Then Restarted Firefox, And Was Able To Log In And Save New Cookies For My Google Account. And Since I Wasn't In Private Browsing Mode; I Didn't Have To Re-Log Into Facebook. So Far It's Working Like It Should! Thanks Again!
