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.
