I have to login to many sites every time I restart Vivaldi

  • I'm finding that whenever I restart the browser, most of the sites I've been logged in to are now logged out. This includes, for instance, the Amazon sites which remember who I am but don't leave me functionally logged in - and it also includes sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google.
    I also have to authenticate my LastPass extension again.

    I don't think this is the intended behaviour, and it seems unnecessarily strict, but I can't find a setting to change this. Am I missing something, or is it a bug?

    I posted this in "All platforms", but for more information, I'm using MacOS 10.12.5 and the latest version of Vivaldi - currently 1.11.917.43 (Stable channel) (64-bit).

  • Sites like google, twitter and facebook have "remember me on this computer" or "keep me logged in" settings. If you don't activate this you get logged out automatically after a certain time.

    The Vivaldi setting you have to check is under vivaldi://settings/privacy/ named cookies. Set it to allow all. If you have session only your cookies get deleted and you will be logged out of everything when you restart.

  • Cookies setting is already allow all.
    I have already logged into all sites with "keep me logged in" enabled. It's not about the length of the session, it's about being logged out when I restart the browser.

    @luetage I disagree. I have never seen a "remember me" setting do ANYTHING other than pre-insert your user name. I never use these, as they can interfere with Vivaldi's built-in "remember log-in" actions, and I never have to re-log-in anywhere unless I fail to visit it for weeks or months - and if a new login is needed, Vivaldi remembers username and password, and it's two clicks instead of one. But like Google sites, facebook, discus, etc. I basically NEVER have to log in, unless I've been absent for a long time. It's a cookie expiration deal.

    The most likely reason why the user has to log in every time is a corrupted Log In Data file.

    Try to delete the file Cookies and Cookies-journal in user's Vivaldi profile folder and start Vivaldi.

  • @Gwen-Dragon Thanks, I'll try that.

  • @gwen-dragon Thanks, did that and restarted (also deleted the Log In Data files) and after the following restart, I was still logged in as expected.
