    Firefox no longer logging me into sites

    Since updating to FF 82.0, I've been having to log into sites with login names and passwords recorded in Firefox that I haven't had to manually log into for a long time. This site and YouTube are two that I have to log into manually every time I open them. I posted on another forum this morning and had to log in again before I could edit that post even though I hadn't left the site. Correct login names and passwords show in the login windows, but I'm having to enter manually. Anybody else having this problem?

    Hello larc919 ,
    Look at the answer of Tavis Ormandy and give it a try:
    Chrome keeps signing me out after updating to Windows update 2004 - Google Chrome Community It probably applies to other apps aside from Chrome as it's not a Chrome specific fix and I've seen it mentioned in other non-Chrome posts.

    @larc919.... I had the problem a few days ago, don't know why it was set to someone else's login. Make sure your "name" and email address are the same as login is presenting. It was very strange as I'm in the US and the other account was in the UK!. I ended up resetting my two email accounts and cell phone # to get my account back again.

    Thanks for that, Jacee. It seems my problem may have fixed itself. I've been able to get logged into all my regular sites automatically yesterday and so far today. Fingers crossed. Anyway, I'm going out on a limb and marking this solved.
