I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.
Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.
(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.
"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."
Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.
Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.
Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.
Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.
Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?
To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.
