Firefox randomly restarts, logs me out of everything
AFter my last update to firefox, randomly it will close and reopen but when it does im suddenly signed out of all my accounts. gmail, youtube, etc. I have cookies and special cookies saved, im not in private browsing, and when i close the window normally it saves all my sign ins. It never use to do this until recently.

I still need assistance with this.
I have tried a clean install I have tried changing history settings I have tried the settings regarding clearing details after 30 days This ONLY happens on firefox.
If Firefox closes unexpectedly (possibly crashes) then the normal shutdown procedure is likely not performed and this means that you can lose cookies.
Is your startup setting to reopen closed windows automatically (Show my windows and tabs from last time) as that gives more protection in such a case ?

I just turned the setting on to restore last tabs and such to see if that works. i'll watch to see if it crashes again and if not let ya know, but it's weird it only did this crashing thing with the last update
preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings. Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes.
So this happened again today. I have firefox set to remember my closed windows, and it still logged me out of everything.
I also have the private browwsing turned off, remembering turnf on, and clear when closes and this still continues to happen.
it'll just happen randomly that it closes, and when i reopen it im signed out of everything
Are you sure this isn't a O/S memory issue or bad memory chips?
