Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail dobrow 6/8/09 10:52 AM
Everytime I go to the internet I have to sign in using my e-mail address and password to get to my home page.  It started this about 4 days ago.  How do I fix it?

I have the same problem?

I'm confused here, dobrow. Are you complaining that you have to sign in to your e-mail account in order to read your e-mail (as it appears on the Subject line) or is this a question about using your e-mail address to sign in to your browser (which displays your desired "homepage" location) as the body of the text would appear to indicate?

Signing in to your mailbox in order to view your messages is a standard 'security' procedure - every e-mail user is required to sign in, in whichever e-mail service you use.
Your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome) are your browser, and that's where you set the 'Homepage' (often to something like http://www.google.com or a Microsoft equivalent) which defines the page your browser will open up with and display.

If you use Gmail through the webmail interface, then (in your browser) you need to have a Tab open using the address https://mail.google.com/mail/  which will give you the page where you insert the username and password for your Gmail account, in order to see the contents of your mailbox.  
IF you want these details to be automatically entered - and this should ONLY be done on a PC that you have 'sole responsibility' for!! - then you can click on the tick box for "Remember me on this PC" which stores your username and password on the PC. At that stage, anyone else using that PC for Gmail will automatically log directly into your Gmail account. [That is why this is a dangerous action, and should only be done on a PC that  no-one else ever uses!].
These details can, however, be removed - by clearing out certain files held by your browser (the cache, cookies, authorised sessions, history files, passwords, etc., that we often advise be cleaned out as they are sometimes liable to corruption).
But this is now in the browser, not Gmail - and unless you've set your homepage to be https://mail.google.com/mail/ then your browser shouldn't open directly into your e-mail mailbox. And I hope that answers the textual part of your posting.

I am having a similar problem since updating to Firefox 3.5 yesterday.
Each time that I open Firefox Gmail I need to Sign In.

Even tho I did post the question of the Firefox forum...no one has had a Fix for it.

I do hope that someone on Google Gmail will know how I can once again enable "Stay signed" in.

 Whenever I close my IE session and later open up another IE session and wish to go into gmail, I have to sign in. I have ticked the box below every time.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail JohnW2 7/26/09 9:45 AM
t's for your own protection. If you do leave yourself with a permanently logged in session, then anyone who might use your PC has instant access to your messages.
Think of your password as the key to your front door. Would you be surprised if you got burgled if you left the key in your front door all the time?

It's one of the very few things that Micro$haft have (of late) got right!! And Mozilla/Firefox have the same opinion it seems.
It really was the most silly decision by M$ to have that Remember me box in the first place, and has cost many thousands of people their e-mail accounts.

This does NOT ans. the question. As for the example using the door, once a person opens the door to their house they don't have to use the key to step in and out of ones door/house every time we go out the door. If i had to go out an get something, the newspaper, mail, go to the garage, etc., and I had to use my house key to get in and out each time it would drive me up the wall. No, I should not have to use the key, nor should i have to sign in at every single turn. Google NEEDS TO ANS. THIS QUESTION?

I have noticed this too since upgrading to Firefox 3.5.3  It has rendered my GMail Manager useless.

If this is a "feature" that is "for my own protection", they can have it back.  If someone uses my computer to access my email, that is the very least of my concerns.  Everyone in my household (that is me and one other) has the password.  Anyone else who might be using my computer will probably not have time to read my email anyway as they will be far too busy dodging dog teeth and bullets.

All that I (and the OP apparently) want to know is :

A) If this is a feature, how do I turn it off, or
B) If this cannot be turned off, where can I get an older version of FF until somebody comes up with a hack to make this one usable again


Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail empressjade 10/10/09 4:02 AM
I am having the exact same problem the last few days when I access my gmail by clicking my Gmail Notifier icon and having it opened with Firefox.  No matter how many times I check the box "Stay Signed In" it will not keep me signed in.  It's nerve wracking when I check my email 20 times a day and have to log in every single stupid time now to read my email when before my Gmail Notifier would take me straight to my inbox when I clicked on it, bypassing the sign in screen.  When is there going to be a fix for this?
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail Cejo44 11/3/09 8:03 AM
Same problem.  It's very frustrating.  If this policy  is not changed,  I will be leaving Gmail.  It was a great service up to this point. 
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail kfhoz 11/12/09 10:09 AM
Firefox just started doing this to me also, this week.  Every time I restart my browser it wants me to sign in to google.  It would be good to know if this is a firefox problem or a google problem.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail nelmascoggins 1/21/10 12:22 PM
I have no idea what you are talking about in the answer to "Why do I have to sign in every time I want to view my E-mails?" Until just yesterday I had no problem at all. I was always signed in. I really, really don't like having to sign every few minutes when I want to see who has E-mailed me. Tell me in plain English that someone not computer literate can understand, or better yet, just keep me signed in.

Hello all,

I had the same problem with firefox, not just with gmail but also yahoo mail.  I just downloaded the newest firefox (v.3.6) and it *appears* to solve the problem.  I was running 3.0.something.

Hope this helps.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail Mena 4/30/10 10:54 AM
Well I hope that this problem is solved soon, I am sick of signing in all day long just to read my mail.   It is very frustrating that until a few days ago I was an extremely happy gmail user. I just want to be able to read my mail without having to sign in every time, is that too much too ask?   Security has nothing to do with it, if you have a button giving you a choice of being remembered on your computer then  that is up to you, but that choice has been taken away and I am very angry about it.

Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail N8Lane 5/18/10 11:27 AM
Unfortunately, This is not an answer to the question(s) asked either, Apparently it is just like trying to get tech support from someone in India. Why do people never answer the question asked, they just (very politely) tell you what you already know?  I know that there is the possibility to stay logged into google, because my "google talk" system tray icon keeps me logged in all the time, even if I close the browser, even if I turn off the computer.  When I click on that system tray icon first, I don't have to enter my user name or password for iGoogle or for my g-mail. 
 
I have iGoogle set as my home page, and if I open it first, I have to sign in, despite the fact that I click on the box to keep me signed in every time.  I use IE8, but it seems to be a Google problem, not a browser problem, evident by the many different browsers mentioned in the previous posts. I could be wrong here, and if there is a setting in the browsers that will allow me to open my browser and have my home page show up and be automatically signed in, I would love to know what it is?  I have tried enabling cookies, allowing exceptions in my firewall, and security programs. It just won't keep me signed in.  I should say, it won't keep me signed in when I close and open my browser. The only way I can avoid signing in is, if I keep my browser open- after having re-signed in - or click on my google talk system tray icon first.
 
Like I said, I don't have the answer to the question asked, I would like to know myself. but maybe some of you could download the Google Talk: 
 
 
to your system tray and click it before you open your browser. This would change the process to two clicks instead of.  Click, grrrr, type, click the useless "keep me signed in" box, and click again.
 
Google is awesome but finding answers to Google interaction problems is their biggest flaw.

I have had so many problems using Gmail but the worst is the fact that you can’t communicate with them it’s as if they don’t exist, perhaps they shouldn’t because when it comes to communicating they don’t. They drive their customers mad with their stupid computer driven answers to questions that your not even asking & don’t come close to offering a proper response I just wish there was some way that we as the public could find an Email supplier that knew what they were doing perhaps we should all change our Gmail to Email until they grow up.

I have had the same problem for several days...I have never had the problem in the past.  And yet I do not see any resposes that actually answer the question. How do we fix this.  I have to sign in to even get my home page which is also set on google...and then once i'm signed into my home page i can access my email. This is ridiculous.

I have been using GMail InBox as my home page and Firefox (most recent version) as my browser.  When I click on Firefox, screen opens to my GMail Inbox.  Until yesterday.  Now suddenly, instead of opening to my GMail Inbox (my selected homepage), it opens to GMail sign-in page.  Fortunately, I can type just beginning of sign-in "name" (i.e. my email address) and it fills in the rest as well as my password (dotted out).  Why do I suddenly have these interim steps whereas before, I went straight to my GMail Inbox?

When is Gmail going to fix this problem. I am getting a secondary sign in page every time I turn around. I need to check my mail frequently and I prefer to have it remember me because I sit here computering all day long. I NEED IT TO RMEMBER!

Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail crunkule 9/11/10 8:46 PM
I was having this problem in Firefox (not just with gmail but many sites), along with strange auto-complete results in my address bar.  I think it started after a recent firefox update.

Anyway, I was able to fix it by making a new firefox profile and starting from scratch, and then importing my bookmarks from my old profile. 

1) Export your bookmarks from your current firefox profile to html or .json using "organize bookmarks..."
2) close firefox completely
3) Run firefox on the command line, or with "start menu--->run" using the -p flag, which starts the profile manager ( or google "start firefox profilemanager" for instructions.
4) make a new firefox profile and start with it
5) import your bookmarks from the file you saved out earlier
6) test whether this solves your problem with having to log in every time (click remember password after logging in to gmail etc.).  If it fixes your problem, you are good to go with the new firefox profile, but you can get to your old one by using "firefox -p" to launch the profile manager at any time.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail mnco3 9/15/10 4:39 PM
I just switched to gmail from yahoo mail. Same browser (ie7). Yahoo mail kept me signed in across sessions and shut-downs. Gmail makes me sign in every time. It is not dangerous in my case, no one can get to my computer. So pls don't tell me it is for my own good. In fact, don't answer unless you know of a fix.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail chiefengineer1 9/24/10 12:20 AM
mnco3, I just had this problem pop up on my computer after switching to firefox and then changing my mind.As it turned out, I had to go to IE tools,select internet options and in the " To create home tabs,type each address on it's own line " box I had to ensure that the google page URL was inserted.Next , on the same page , make sure that in the " Browsing History " section that the " Delete Browsing History On Exity " is deselected . After completing these , click on " Apply" and this should take care of the problem .

Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail kcgirl 10/4/10 8:25 AM
This is not a Firefox problem, for those people that keep mentioning FF. This is a GOOGLE problem. I've made no browser changes and have not updated FF. It started happening a few days ago, regardless. SO....Google needs to answer the stinkin' question. People are waiting. And...to the last person that answered above...we should not have to keep our browsing history on exit to fix this. It's always worked fine BEFORE, so something has BROKEN and Google/Gmail needs to fix it. We shouldn't have to apply "workarounds."
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail shelleyhigg 10/5/10 4:05 PM
Same problem. Between this and not being able to organize emails alpha by sender, I need another provider. The only thing holding me to gmail is that my Droid is already set up to receive gmail and that would mean I'd have an extra programming step. AAARRGGHH.

I agree with you I am using I.E. and had made no other changes. I have FF as a backup browser and it does it on that one too. But I am with you, I made no changes. There is only one remote thing I may have done. I vaguely remember a Gmail message that said would you like to be able to access more than one Google account. I was thinking this was like the hotmail/live/MSN web page that shows you all of your other like accounts so one can click and enter password. Instead of having to type each one each time.
 
I cannot remember deciding if this was a good idea and clicking on the Google message to say yes. I am thinking not because I thought this might interfere with my Google notifier in the lower right corner that tells me I got mail and scrolls through (one of the better inventions). I figured this might create a device conflict and I would lose that notifier if I had two Google email accounts open at the same time. I do not think I said yes. But I do remember having trouble and being bumped out of Gmail logon after receiving this popup from Google. Maybe it was this version that caused this mess.
 
BTW the wife gets to see the notifier but the husband does not...guess I lucked out! (He never uses the computer anyways)
 
Funny thing is, it seems like the notifier stays signed in. But whenever I go back and forth with Google Maps and Gmail, inevitably I get logged off even though I have it checked to keep me logged in. It is definitely a Google problem and I would start with the web designer or programmer who came up with the multi login idea....means someone was tweaking it....

It's always worked fine BEFORE, so something has BROKEN and Google/Gmail needs to fix it. We shouldn't have to apply "workarounds." from KCGIRL. This person asked how to fix the problem and I answered it . Have you or anyone else noticed that when you clean your computer , each and every time , that it gets rid of cookies that allow you back in to Google's auto sign in and you have to sign in on these times . If you get rid your browsing history , you are getting rid of the cookies and the way the computer works to get you back in to these sites. You can either uncheck the box or enjoy signing in each time because when it always worked fine BEFORE , the box was unchecked and this is not a workaround.

This is all well and good but what if you don't want to buy FireFox or download Google's (or whoever is hawking it) Javascript? It's Googles problem....they should fix it. My G-Mail was working FINE yesterday. I didn't do anything to my computer. What did the little G-gnome come in overnight and screw my g-mail up?
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail JohnW2 10/18/10 8:12 AM
@borschtbabe - Gmail has done no updating for a couple of days now, but Microsoft and Adobe (just as a for instance!) have both sent out massive updates for their systems running into nearly a hundred separate patches, and they will have a massive impact on your environment - without you doing anything!! It seems just a little unfair to blame Google for that fact.
Besides, any changes Google does are only on their servers for the application they are responsible for. If the environment which is required to interface to Gmail changes on your PC for whatever reason, that's not strictly Gmail's responsibility, and they will have to re-act to whatever is changed by any other provider.
And purely for information, the Firefox browser is free, whilst JavaScript is primarily used in the form of client-side JavaScript, implemented as part of your web browser so as order to provide you with an enhanced user interface and more dynamic websites. So, unless you're using Chrome as your browser, Google's not responsible for the code in your browser either!
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail MaggieToo 10/25/10 6:00 AM
That still doesn't answer the question. We know about cookies and auto sign ins and getting rid of history. That's not the issue.  We are not clearing cookies or browser history. It just does not work. Whenever I pull up gmail or facebook or anything that requires a log in on chrome, I have to sign in every since time I close and reopen the browser. Neither the clear cache nor clear history box is checked. And, the keep me signed in box is checked on all those, so I should still be signed in. But apparently chrome has some issue because I have to keep logging in each time (to facebook, gmail, you name it). That is the issue.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail MaggieToo 10/25/10 6:21 AM
@JohnW2. I am using Chrome for my browser and have the same issue. See above. IE keeps me logged into gmail and facebook, but Chrome does not keep me logged in. I have not cleared history or cookies, and keep me logged in is checked off. We're still looking for an answer to get this issue fixed.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail JohnW2 10/25/10 10:18 AM
@MaggieToo - well, there has to be something! I have a vanilla Win7 Pro x64-bit installation with Chrome as the browser, and it doesn't happen for me (and I figure that situation is more common than yours!) - so there's either some setting in Chrome which is different for you (and your fellow sufferers) or there's some other software causing it.
Since cookies are what keep your session information, it has to be related to those and/or the browser.
Re: Why do I have to sign in every time using my e-mail and password to access my e-mail cadetserver 10/25/10 8:25 PM
Hey guys,
 
I think I may have figured out a workaround for myself. I use IE 8 and so that problem (Google won't stay logged in, even with agreement checked) is happening to me ever since I was reading about whether I wanted to be able to stay signed in GMAIL with more than one email account. I do not remember saying yes, but it was around the same time that option was offered by your Webmaster from Google. From then on, I kept getting kicked out of Google sign in, every time I open a IE. Browser window. ( I like to be in Gmail and then pull up Google Maps to check an address for my job scheduling from email.) Then bump...logn again....bump...login again....bump.login again.
 
A NEW THOUGHT CAME TO ME: I just tried signing into my Gmail account via the Gmail Notifier in the lower right corner instead of the "normal" way via www.Google.com
 
then Gmail button. Maybe the Webmaster only logs in this way and doesn't open other browser windows. So far seems to be working.
 
So now,  INSTEAD: On the Gmail Notifier I clicked on the View Mailbox button which automatically loads up my IE 8 browser then comes into Gmail... and what do you know it seems to have remembered who I am and password! Woohooo, after so long. I am now going to see how long before it "forgets" who I am. (Even though all of these scenarios have the remember me, remember my password check marked or whatever it is.)
 
Hope this works for you guys. I am going to see what happens when I open various browser windows. After all, isn't the whole point is to open windows? I do not know why my Google login  "remember me button" just quit working several weeks ago. It worked great for several months! I have not done updating and have looked in the "advance" tools section in my Internet options to see if the buttons refereed to in other fix-it posts came unchecked or whatever.
 
And I just don't see it...I am with the other Posters...this needs to be a Google fix...happening to too many Browser Companies....the variable is really in Google's court.
 
BTW, just one more thing....why can't Google remember my full login name at sign in? It should be simple, no typing. I should only have to just click-click on blank AUTOComplete. (or a drop down arrow or past used email addresses). See hotmail or Yahoo for examples of what I mean.
 
It is so tedious to type {spell out example}: MyEmailAddress@Gmail.com every single time. Anyone else have this as their pet peeve too? I love Google but the main login page needs to be updated to work like the rest of the state-of-the-art Email Browser Companies....Aren't you supposed to be number one? I have my doubts, now...Because you are certainly not keeping up with the Big Three!
 
Don't get me wrong Google is far, frickin out! I love Google Voice, I am a contributor to 3D Warehouse, use SketchUp and competed in Google Earth and other designer contests. But come on!!!!....spend some time to fix the foundation (Gmail), before it crumbles.
 
All those who agree with these comments, Write back! Try the Gmail Notifier button for your self. That Notifier is one of the better inventions. Reminds me of "You Got Mail".

After I posted a question asking *why do I always have to type in my user name & password (annoying) even though I checked the *remember me* or *Stay signed In* optionsSomething made me check my Firefox option section! I think I found the problem! yippeeee 
Go under *Tools* >>options >>Security>>My *Remember Passwords for Sites* was checked (being computer Illiterate) I had no idea what the *Exceptions* option was so out of curiosity I clicked on it...........Come to find out that this is a list of *User Names & Passwords that will NOT BE SAVED* the 3rd on my list was Google!! I just highlighted it & clicked *Remove*! Like magic...It works! I'm becoming a computer GENIUS!!!  good luck!

This solution may not help everyone (those of you with Firefox may be on your own) but for those that have Internet Explorer this worked for me. I had the same problem for months and after listening to 20 suggestions with no success I accidentally found it was an incredibly simple solution. I went into tool and then Internet options and then unchecked the boxed marked delete browsing history on exit. Now i can sign in and out of my browser as much as i want without having to sign in to my home page (I-Google) over and over again. Problem fixed. Someone later explained to me that when that when that box is checked it deletes your cookies as well as your browsing history. Since each time I signed out of my browser (Internet Explorer) my google cookie was being deleted Id have to resign in to Google after opening my browser to get my home page to pop up. Now mind you if you dont check the box you should however delete your cookies manually maybe once a week. You go to the same place to do that..tools--Internet options--and then click delete (leaving the box still unchecked). Furthermore someone else told me there is even a better way to do this leaving the box checked to delete all your cookies however going to another area where you can add cookies...you then add only the Google cookie therefore permitting only the google cookie while all others are deleted. Im not sure how to do it but it would eliminate the need to manually delete your cookies weekly once again.

I must say that JohnW2's answer was what I needed. All I had to do was delete the check mark on keeping me signed in and yahoo, I now do not have to sign everytime I want to email or go on Facebook.  Thank you JohnW2!!!

The solution posted by crunkule worked for me, but it has a problem: you loose all the passwords previously stored. For example, I use Billeo and Norton Security to store my passwords, but as you have to start for scratch the only thing that you can import to the new profile are your bookmarks and Billeo doesn't save your passwords when you reinstall it, so you have to build all again. It's a hassle, and I don't know what is worse: to  sign-in every time you open the browser, or rebuild all your password lists.

The fact of that the problem is fixed when you restart firefox to its original setting make me think that the problem shall be in the cookies, the saved history, or the saved passwords. I will investigate these settings and tell you if I find other solution easier to use that this one.

I got it! I have set my cookies to accept all but ask me when I am being redirected to third parts. I use to apply the option "Accept for this session" with the intention the it will be deleted when I close the browse. Well, I deleted ALL the cookies stored and click to open my home page. When I was asked what to do with the gmail cookie, I pushed "Accept" and that was it!

I think that the problem is due to a better security setting in the new version of Firefox, because I never had this issue before. With older versions, probably the security sets where not applied to the home pages and now it's.
