All of sudden i have to sign in to every website everytime i go there. For example, i used to straight go to youtube, but now i have to sign in everytime.
I do not know how, but a couple days ago i have had to sign in to every website seperately. For example, before i was able to go straigh to websites like youtube and social club, but now i have to sign in everytime i go there. This is for every website. Far as i know, i haven't done nothing to cause this and i have no idea how to fix this.

Hi, it sounds as if you need to check you cookie settings and make sure they (and history) are enabled - Settings for privacy, browsing history and do-not-track.
If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.
I checked, and i had them enabled, but i still need to always sign in seperately.
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; never remember history).
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
- Deselect: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
A detail like a website remembering you (log you in automatically) is stored in a cookie.
You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you:
- Create a cookie 'allow' exception to keep such cookies, especially in case of secure websites and when cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
- Tools > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: Exceptions
Removing cookies from a website will make the website forget about you.
