How can I avoid signing in to Firefox every time I open it?

Firefox used to remain signed whenever I opened it. Now it forces me to go through the full sign in, including the password, every time I start it. How do I stay signed in? When I sign in, it goes to my correct home page. I just have to sign in each time.

Websites remembering you and automatically log you on is stored in a cookie.

  • Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Private Browsing mode.

Do not use Clear Recent History to clear the "Site Preferences" and the "Cookies" as this doesn't take exceptions into account, but removes all specified data.

Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.

Thanks for the help. I stumbled onto an answer by opening "help" and then the "troubleshooting" button. When I did that, I found a "reset" icon and after clicking that everything went back to normal. Maybe this will help someone else as well.
