Firefox 76.0.1 requiring passwords on browser restart

Hello, With this new 76.0.1 Firefox update when I restart the browser I have to verify 2nd auth for Gmail, Amazon and others. Even when I check "Do not ask for OTP on this browser", etc. Does any one else see this issue? Thank You! Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (x64) Build 7601 GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3

That sounds like a cookie issue. In order for 2FA to remember your login status you'd have to setup the browser to retain cookies. Something I'd never due from a security/privacy standpoint.

If you're not using Authy now, I highly recommend it. I remember reading about some crap associated with the use of Google authenticator. The best part about Authy is that it comes in a smartphone App and a desktop App as well. And all OTP's are synced between all installs.

Cookies were the problem. I forgot I had to reinstall Firefox a few days ago. I also forgot that I had Authy but never set it up. I heard GA had issues too a while back. Will have to change to Authy. Thank You!

Firefox, W7, And Passwords ?
Hello, I imagine a lot of you folks are using Firefox. Works fine, except for one thing, which I would really like to get to function. It's their Password Manager. Under Tools/Options/Security, I do have the remember Passwords box checked.
