My tabs no longer stay continuously logged upon closing and reopening. What setting must I restore to get back to continous log on state?
I apparently changed some setting so now every tab reopened with TAB Manager must be manually logged into each time I close and reopen them in firefox. What is the setting I must change to restore the previous functionality.

It seems you have written you answer presuming I know more about Firefox than I do...
Could you list the most like reason this happened and give the quick steps to correct the problem instead of forcing me to learn a lot about firefox?
