Each time I close my browser and re-open it, I am logged out

Started about an hour ago 1/11/2024 around 9:30 pm central. If I close the browser (firefox) and then open a new window and click on my growinfruit link, I have to log in anew.

I stopped using Firefox and switched to chrome. But I will hazard to guess it is the new security step for syncing. Go to settings and turn off Firefox syncing. Betcha it stops logging you off. However; making you sign in for sync with 2 step verification off browser is a strong security measure. So on Chrome I live with it.

How do I stay logged into a website in Firefox?

To stay logged in to the websites in Firefox go to Settings - Privacy & Security - Cookies and Site Data - UNCHECK THE BOX for - Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Also if you are using any cleaning software be sure to make exception for Firefox.Apr 16, 2023

Found that online…
I do not use FF myself… prefer Chrome.

Good luck

Brave browser on mobile is what I use. It works great and offers privacy and options to be compensated for the advertising it throws at you.


Firefox/Mint without syncing and no issues.

That’s #1 to check. Let us know if it helps.

I have Delete Cookies on close unchecked and have had it set that way for at least 10 years, maybe more.

I do not have syncing enabled.

I just deleted the growingfruit cookie and now logged back in. Did not help.

I’ve found a bit more about this problem. If I click on my link to open growingfruit, then click the reload button, the forum loads normally. Only when first opened from my bookmark does it show me logged out.

Try deleting the bookmark and then logging in, then create a new bookmark while logged in. I know in Chrome it sometimes attempts to load an old (expired) session cookie for bookmarks even if there was a newer (active) session cookie for that website since the bookmark was made. I don’t know if Firefox does the same thing.

Brave is really nice.

Sounds like the book mark is the problem, I almost always use firefox and I have never heard of the ‘Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed’, maybe it’s the fact that I use firefox nightly, and not their normal browser.
