As the title explains, Firefox clears my cookies whenever i open it. not when i close it, but when i open.

the option to clear cookies on close is off, i have no clue why it's doing this, i know it's not an extension or a program. ( at least i hope it's not )

thankfully it always makes a backup but i really don't want to have to through the files and remove the .bak every single time i wanna go through the internet. any advice?

If Firefox clears data when opening then this can happen if Firefox failed to close properly the last time and didn't finish clearing up data. When Firefox notices this on the next start then it will complete all tasks that weren't finished on the previous close down.

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar, especially if you have multiple windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File -> Exit
