when i log into all my sites needing a password then close browserand reopen browserand i have to log into the site(s) agianevenwhenIsay remember me Ie facebook

more options

When i log into all my sites needing a password and username for example Facebook and Gmail then i close the browser with "remember me" selected it logs me out of Gmail and Facebook. Then i have to log back into the those sites again. This does not happen to me in Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.

Firefox seems to save the password and username but logs me out of all my sites that needs a password and username after each session. This never happen to me before an Firefox update.

The only way that i have found to work around this to keep Firefox open.

Thanks

The "remember me" checkbox instructs the site to set a persistent cookie in Firefox. Persistent means that the cookie is marked with a future expiration date so that Firefox retains it between sessions.

There are a lot of ways to break this. For example:

  • Visit the site in a private window
  • Change Firefox's default setting of accepting persistent cookies from all servers (first party and third party)
  • Set Firefox to clear cookies at shutdown
  • Install add-ons that clear cookies
  • Use external cleaning/security/privacy software that clears Firefox cookies

If you're not sure about your cookie settings, check out the Privacy panel of the Options dialog:

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Privacy

If you have "Firefox will: remember history" then cookies are accepted and retained.

If you have "Firefox will: use custom settings for history" you can check your cookie settings below that line.

If you have "Firefox will: never remember history" then you are going to be using full time private browsing and cookies are discarded between sessions.


If cookie settings are okay, and you would like advice on your extensions, it would be helpful if you could post a list of them. Open the Troubleshooting Information page using either:

  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter
