I have a problem with Firefox not maintaining granted permissions which forces having to re-grant them, re-authorize/signin etc each time (several times a day). The problem exist on several sites (I think they're related, please correct me if not). eg google workspace suite; I'm using gmail in browser, with Calendar, Drive, Voice, and other elements. Having logged in to gmail (which always forces 2fa even though I check "remember this device"), using the other functions of workspace should be authorized, but if I go to say a folder in Drive, or try to create a Calendar event from an email, a new tab opens and I'm forced to sign-in again (with 2fa). All the google addresses I use are in the "allowed" section of Firefox settings, their cookies saved as exceptions for filtering and saved on exit, and allowed in cross-site filtering. I can't think of anything else to do that would prevent having to sign-in all the time. Similarly with other secure sites such as financial institutions, despite having them bookmarked, cookies allowed, checking "remember this site" etc, every instance has to be re-authorized, re-signed in with 2Fa etc. I only ever use the same laptop and smart phone so it doesn't make sense that neither of these devices are ever recognized. I even get email notifications "detected a new signin on an unknown device" etc. and this happens across sessions, before hibernation or shutdown. How do I get premissions to persist?
