Firefox keeps auto logging me out of sites when I close the app!
Recently Firefox has started to automatically log me out of the sites that I regularly visit on the iOs version of the browser. I then have to keep logging back in each time I visit the sites. It's also incredibly finicky in the fact that sometimes I will be logged into one site, but not another, as if it's slowly deleting the history/logins or temporarily remembering certain sites before forgetting them again.
I'm on the regular tab for the browser app, not in the private/incognito one, but this continues to happen.
Trying to find an answer online leads me to people talking about a "never remember history" toggle, but never where to find it on iOs, just on the desktop browser. The only equivalent I can find for this is the "clear private data" under the data management tab, but when I try to toggle those off for browsing history, cache and cookies, they are auto switched back to on when I leave the settings as there is no way, or indication, of saving.
I don't know if this is something to do with the most recent update(Firefox 115.0) or what, but I'd like to figure out an answer because the continuous having to log in on my own device that I only use into what are my accounts on sites is starting to get frustrating.

Have you gotten any updates/responses from Mozilla about this? I’ve been having the same problem for awhile now, too. Been hoping that they’d push out an update or something to the App Store for a fix to this. I regularly visit Bing and am constantly having to re-login to my Microsoft account for their rewards program. Noticed the same thing for openbay.com when I was looking at quotes for repairs on my car. Had to log back in after I closed Firefox.
I have these issues too (on iOS). It's been going on for a while now and only seems to be getting worse. Sometimes closing the tab and visiting the same site from a new tab will make me logged in again, but often I have to actually shut down Firefox and restart the app and then hope it'll be fine. I'm now at a point where it just gets too frustrating.
I have a theory about this, although I’m waiting to see if it holds. If anyone’s got input or refutation, please reply to this. Basically, I tend to leave way too many tabs open, and for some reason my Firefox kept opening my oldest active tab when I opened the app. (Not always, but just when the app refreshed I guess). And the site I repeatedly get logged out of seems to correspond to the site in that tab (kept getting logged out of ao3 when it was an ao3 tab, kept getting logged out of YouTube when it was a YouTube tab). I’ve currently got a tab from a different website in that slot, so I’m going to see if that prevents me from getting logged out of other sites
