I am unable to stay signed in on Chromium and Google Chrome. I sign in to website A, close all tabs, open website A again, and am still signed in. I quit Chromium or Google Chrome, open website A, and have to sign in again.
I believe the problem is from Chromium because I can stay signed in on website A on other browsers. I checked this thread and confirm that at
chrome://settings/content/cookies, I have disabled
Clear cookies and site data when you quit Chrome. That issue seems to continue unsolved.
I am using Chrome
81.0.4044.138 and Chromium
How can I stay signed in on a website with Chromium or Chrome?
Update: I reinstalled Chromium and Google Chrome and have the same problem. I have since learned how to inspect cookies. On Facebook, for example, I have cookies that expire in 3 months:
After I quit and restart Chromium, all cookies from facebook are gone:
Another problem that could be related is that each time I launch Chromium or Chrome, I get these two alerts, as if I were launching it for the first time:
I believe this is a problem with the browser on this operating system because of these two alerts, and because Brave which is also based on Chromium does not give these problems.
And for reference, my settings do not ask to clear cookies after restarting:
Second update: I updated Chromium (Version 86.0.4207.0 (Developer Build) (64-bit), 18 July 2020) and Google Chrome (Version 84.0.4147.105 (Official Build) (64-bit), 18 July 2020) and they both have the same problem. I verify that cookies are enabled, sign in to a website, quit the browser, go to the same website, and I am signed out, even though the website has cookies stored. Here is an example of cookies from StackOverflow saved on the browser, which looks the same for Chromium and Chrome:
