Windows 7: Signed out of Microsoft acct at random

Signed out of Microsoft acct at random

Here's the story. I use Bing as the start page in FF. So see the box top right? I stay signed in to FB acct, but once in awhile, I get signed out of MS acct. No, it's not cookies- it happens on FF, Chrome, IE, Safari, Opera, I have 'em all. I write Bing help; believe me when I say they are not very bright. At least the ones that write me. The answer for everything is to 'optimize your browser' and 'clear your cache.'
So why do I get signed out?

Nice avatar and slogan under your name eknirb It may well be MS. They have recently changed security settings, and they may only allow you to be signed in for a certain period. Can you tell if the sign out is at a regular period, or is it random?

I will check about that. I haven't seen it happen once today. I am sure it is MS.
