The first thing I would check is if the browser prefs have been set to dump cookies
when it quits.
In the Firefox I am using, under Privacy in Preferences, there is a checkbox:
Accept from sites, and below that a sub option "Keep Until": <select/option>
I have chosen "I close Firefox" from the selection list.
I am using Firefox 54.0.1 (64-bit) on Mac OSX.
The ttl of the cookie might not be set long enough during the time the browser is
That is all I can thing of.
