Description of the issue:
Each time I navigate to Facebook Website I’ve to reconnect. If I close the tab and reopening it it works, but if I close Brave I will have to reconnect.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Navigate to Facebook
Login to facebook
Navigate to facebook
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Facebook asks for login
Facebook keeps the connection
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 11 Pro - Brave v1.60.118
All Other website seems to work correctly (Twitter / Reddit / Twitch / Google, …)
All options in “On Exit” tab in the Clear data menu are unchecked.
It’s seems the problem is “facebook do not retain the browser” (or the browser is a new one for facebook pov)
@Damgot I was going to place a bet that you turned on Forget me when I close this site or that you had Block Cookies enabled. But with that turned off, it seems that isn’t the case.
Could you either try a new profile without those extensions to see if it happens? Or perhaps disable/remove the extensions and see if the issue persists?
It is probably easier to create a new profile.
Hamburger Menu → More Tools → Add new profile. Name it whatever you want and then make sure you are in new profile. This will create a second instance of the browser using default settings and no active extensions.
If it doesn’t log you out of Facebook in this, then it is a good suggestion this is because of one of those extensions. You can add one at a time to new profile until you have issues or you can remove from main browser profile.
Either way, it will be helpful to know if this makes any difference.
And if it is happening with you on a new profile, then it seems it shouldn’t be your settings either. About the only things that would persist in a new profile would be any changes you made to brave://flags and anything in your Content Filtering in Shields.
While I might be wrong, this makes it feel like you have a firewall or 3rd party program (like a CCleaner or Avast Cleaner) that might be erasing the data. The only other thing is if you might be using a VPN or something, where Facebook is thinking you’re using a different device when you return.
No I don’t use Avast or CCleaner. I’m only use Eset Nod32.
And on Chrome everything worked well (I’m no longer using chrome since I use Brave)
However I’ve checked brave://flags and I saw that some options was not in default state.
So I’ve made a “Reset all” and now it seems it works.
But I never changed any option in brave://flags (I’ve never seen this page before). I started to use Brave one week ago and I’ve imported Chrome settings when brave asked me.
So maybe these settings were changed during de settings import.
I don’t really know which setting cause the issue because there is a lot of possibilities ^^.
But the “Reset all” seems to have fixed the problem.
I will wait some days to be sure Facebook keeps well my login but after multiple try (close and open brave) it seems it works
