Firstly, Firefox made me log in to every social media site again. Normally I log in automatically. Facebook and messenger - I use the same passwords that work on Chrome and my phone but on Firefox it says the passwords are expired. I had to change my passwords because ONLY Firefox wouldn't let me log in.

Some websites have 'timers' that will expire the login data after a given time. Also,


Your ‘logged-in’ status is stored in special cookies. If the cookie is removed, you are logged out.


You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.


Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
