Getting logged out of every website despite settings to the contrary

In the past week or two, I find I am suddenly being logged out of every website I regularly use, including but not limited to my email, social media accounts, and shopping sites. I have all my settings set to keep me logged in, both in Firefox and on those individual sites. At first I thought the computer had updated over night, but it's happening almost every day now. Most annoying is that several of those sites require 2 or 3 steps to log back in, and it takes as much as ten minutes every day just to be able to get to everything I want to do. I know-the horror. It's an inconvenience, I understand that.

I thought the issue was with Firefox set to clear my history upon closing, so I unchecked that box, but it didn't help. I don't know if it could be an issue with one of my extensions, but I've had all of them for over a year without trouble; this has just started in the last week or so, and in that time I have not personally changed any settings in my browser. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.

After updating Firefox this morning on my main PC, I noticed that it didn't ask for my primary password.

I then noticed that it wasn't filling in passwords automatically.

My primary password has disappeared as well as my stored passwords. When I try to set a primary password it tells me that it can't change the password.

I tried creating a new profile and that didn't fix it.

I can use firefox on other devices and all the information is there. But I can't get my passwords on my primary PC.

How do I fix this?

i'm running Firefox 105.0.1 (64-bit) on a Win 11 PC.

This is scaring me. Why do I have to surrender so much control to use. I keep getting a popup which says, "Take control of your person data!......Block most trackers as you browse.....Add DuckduckGo to firefox.


AND THEN it looks as if you want to take total control of my computer!

Why do you want so much control over my computer??

Please explain.

Hi! A vendor of a solution we use suggested unchecking the "Cookies" and "Tracking content" under "Privacy & Security" settings in the "Custom" section to help with an issue encountered using their services. Those settings look like global settings that would affect all the websites visited, not just the vendors'. Is that correct? What are the implications here? Would this mean giving up Firefox protections?

For one of my passwords a mysterious "X" pops up in the username portion of the login, plus an invalid password. I found it in "login and passwords" section of the menu bar and removed it. It still appears when I go back to login. Is this something to be concerned about?
