Wondering if the recent Firefox 58 update could have caused login issues with my Facebook login settings. Seems unlikely but before the update I was able to simply click on the Facebook icon and Facebook would open. Now when I click on the icon I am taken to a login page that requires me to enter my username and password each time. I have revisited all the settings in Facebook and everything is configured to open Facebook directly by merely clicking on the icon?

Any one have thoughts?

Not seeing that problem here but it could be a settings issue in Firefox. Do you have the browser set to delete cookies upon exit?

Thanks Dan, yes I checked my settings and cookies are kept until Firefox is closed. Do you think that might be related to my issue with Facebook?

Yes. I believe Facebook may store cookies to facilitate log in on your next visit. Try making an exception for Facebook in the Firefox settings for cookies.

Dan, I looked at my Firefox settings and it is set to allow cookies from all websites and Facebook is not excepted? Under show cookies Facebook is not listed - should it be? Still confused on why there was a sudden change that required complete login each visit.

Do you have the same problem if you create a new profile and test it with no extensions or non-default themes installed?

Not sure what is now happeniong but today Facebook opened without a login as it has in the past? Will see how long it will continue.

Thanks for your assistance and interest Dan
