Before Update: I have two different YouTube workflows on two different systems. Although I use ONE Mozilla account, I was able to get automatic sign on for TWO different systems. This meant that I was not automatically logged into the other account as long as I was on the appropriate device.

After Update: Auto-login is only working on my main system's Firefox (without new update). I now have to re-log into my production YT account manually. The reason I can identify this was after the update is because I now have an "old Firefox data" folder on my desktop, aswell as all my extensions being re-installed.

Considerations/Clarifications - I do not mean auto-fill passwords. I mean that my account is already ready to go when I access the YT site. - I use a few security extensions. I understand that these may have an impact on my browser's ability to save passwords. However, for the past 7 years, this has never been a problem given similar extensions.

    - Extension List: Privacy Badger, Adblock, Adblock plus, Adblock for YT, DuckDuckGo privacy essentials,  Facebook container, and Decentraleyes.

Any help is appreciated.

Solution I've found the solution. It was about website cookies. During the update, all the old cookies were wiped and my current security settings did not allow youtube to store cookies.

To solve this add a special rule for youtube in your privacy cookie settings.

Steps

  1. In the burger menu (3 lines at top right) click settings.
  2. In settings, press privacy and security on the left.
  3. Scroll down to Cookies and Site Data.
  4. Press Manage Exceptions
  5. Add address of website (youtube.com)
  6. Save Changes

Now Youtube (or other website) will stay signed in after quitting Browser.
