Windows 7: "Always Stay Signed In" Option Never Seems To Work: Why ?

19 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

We're glad to help, theres one thing you could do that would help us help you & that is update your system specs.
Also when starting your thread having Firefox in the thread title would speed up how quick you get answers.

Is it allowed to post msg's with a small pix taken with the "Snipping Tool" to show some of my present settings ?
I think my Cookie settings are (all) what was suggested, but might be a good idea for someone to verify.
Yes images are allowed when replying click on the paper clip icon

I'm using the Firefox Nightly version of Firefox it will probably be the same in your version.
The picture will show you where the setting's are to clear cookies on exit.

My usual browser is Opera where it is much simpler because it has a delete new cookies on exit option. On the top left of the picture there is the biscuit extension which should do what you want.

From OP: Automatic Log Ins (Firefox)


Here's what I have (Firefox)

Can't imagine what's wrong.

Also, tried LastPass.
Can't get it, either, to do anything regarding any kind of automatic log ins.
Have the Account and their log-in all set up, and I can go to their page that shows my links, but won't do anything in the way of filling in the logins when I go to the actual URL.

In fact, it (LastPass) is so dead, that when I click on their opening log in page, where there is a box for "save my e mail" -
I clicked on that, but when I go back to the log in page later, it hasn't even saved that. Wants it again.

Guess we'll just have to continue doing it the old fashioned way.
Was hoping to, at least, have Google Calendar open up easily without having to log in each time.

Thanks again for ALL the help.

I'm wondering if this could be due to corruption in your Firefox user profile. My first thought was that you're deleting cookies with CCleaner without realizing it, but then you would only experience your problem after each time CCleaner runs, not on every single browser session as you've stated.

For starters, try creating a new temporary profile in FF and using that. If you find that things start to work properly, we can help you move your
profile information from the old profile to the new (leaving the corruption behind in the process). But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

Here's detailed info on how to create/manage profiles: Managing profiles | How to | Firefox Help

I can see you tried to upload an image when replying you can click on go advanced & see a preview of your post & make corrections if needed.
Your last post the part regarding auto login's does not help at all.

Have you tried the Firefox extension Biscuit it's supposed to preserve selected cookies.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Have you checked to see if Firefox is clearing the history when it closes?
There is a check box for cookies that should be unchecked.
You can also uncheck the "Active Logins" box.

The other thing about all these browsers jumping version numbers is AddOn developers have trouble keeping up. Sometimes it helps to run FF 5 when the latest may be 6 or 7. LastPass on my FF5 works in snappy fashion.
