Have you marked the square at the logging tab?
yes I have.
Phone, no problem...... just dawned on me, the penny dropped, I'm on a Private browser!!!!!! DOH.

Private browser does Not keep passwords!

The Private browser ... no wonder it works like that. Because of the security system of the browser it does not save browsing history, cookies, page data or information provided in forms. And that results in "not keeping in mind" logins, passwords and the fact you marked the option for staying logged in.

Just a question ... the Private Browser ... do you mean you run the option "incognito" for Chrome or Fire Fox or it is the name of the web browser?

It's a sub browser in Firefox. Does not keep a log of browsing, like the normal Firefox browser. New Firefox version. I was just using to see if sites can detect and leave cookies. So I'm setting it adrift.

Private Browser is very handy you dont want un-welcome stuff like adds etc. Its a container that deletes everything when closed. It does that for your computer. Your provider is still able to see if it wanted to.
I use it a lot when i.g. links here are given with information and you have to accept cookies etc.
Want the info not the cookies and stuff.

Copied that. Well . my answer is in the post #9. If you want to stay logged in you have to work with the standard Firefox browser. The new one doesn't allow to storage passwords and logging status. Echa time you close the browser or change a page ( opened bookmark ) the data is lost. As the result you have to log in again.

The new Firefox has a Standard, And a Private now. As you pointed out, Std must be used to drag along passwords. All good now That even I know.
