FF not remembering login info; Gmail not remembering all acc

Post by curious »

For approximately the last 10 day, when I go to Gmail, I have to re enter login info for several sites (Washington Post, NY Times). I have clicked Keep me signed in on those site. I have ensured the passwords are saved in FF. I have ensured there are no exceptions in Options/ Privacy/Logins and Passwords.

When I click my Gmail icon, now only my account (mails) appears. I have to hit Add contacts to get the other 2 accounts back—temporarily.
I have checked that the passwords are saved in Firefox. I have clicked Keep me signed in.
I switched to earlier versin of FF, didn’t help.
Is my FF failing? Is there anything I can do (other than going to Pale Moon for these particular sites)?
Pale Moon has remembered all this info: go to Gmail and all accounts are showing; go to the newspaper sites and they have me logged in.
Thank you for your suggestions.
(And, yes, I did try System Restore to earlier date, but as some of you know, I cannot Restore – haven’t been able to (even in Safe Mode) for quite some time.)

Version 68.0.4, 64 bit

What happens if you start Firefox in safe mode by holding down Shift when you start it?

(In safe mode, extensions aren't loaded)

Gmail still just shows my name.

Have to sign in to the news sites.

OK, that more or less rules out an extension as the culprit. I hope that someone else will have a suggestion what to test next...

I am confused by your post. Why does gmail require you to sign in to (Washington Post, NY Times). These are web sites, not email services.

The next thing I would try is deleting ALL cookies, maybe even with something like ccleaner to make absolutely sure.

Thanks, Stuart. I am aware of the distinction. Even though I click on the 'remember me' button, I do have to sign in every time I go to the site. BUT, in Pale Moon, I am remembered, have no problem. That's why I thought it was something going on with the service.

I have thought of clearing all cookies, but shudder at the thought....

Hi curious, Do you sync your FF settings? Have you ticked this box?
