Every time I swap desktops I get logged out of everything!

e.g. If I log into bspwm instead of plasma:

  • The forum logs me out.
  • Tweetdeck (I run in a sidebar in vivaldi) ditto.
  • gmail ditto.
  • github ditto.

This is not a major problem and not limited to EnOS (had the same problem on Manjaro), but it is weird. Any ideas? Or an explanation?

It smells like something to do with your extensions or privacy settings rather than the Linux desktop.
If you log out but back into the same desktop, does it work then?

Nah, happens on all browsers and I run uBlock only, the other extensions I use are not relevant:

Are you sure about that? :wink:

It does sound like the browser is clearing site data - I have mine set to do that on close, so I have to log in to sites every time I restart the browser.


In my book that’s the way it should be. Now that said when you logout or restart the system browsers and email clients are items that should be closed first. Now like @Beardedgeek72 asked if you log back into the same desktop does the behavior still happen?

It has to be clicked to run it, so no, it is not relevant, I installed it for a reason that completely escapes me now :smiley:


Of course it works if I stay on the same desktop, only occurs if I swap desktops, it is all in the title :smiley:

Quick demo, on plasma:

Logging out, see you on the bspwm side.

Logged out of the forum and tweetdeck.

If cookies are removed - you are effectively removing active logins.

No, that extension does not do that:

Remove cookie warnings from almost all websites! The EU regulations require that any website using tracking cookies must get…

As you describe - you are only logged out of everything when you switch desktop environment.

This implies logging out of the current session.

If you are using an app which 'caches* your browser tmps to memory and only writes to disk on exist - you could have a flawed config with respect to the actual implementation.

I have used, in the past:

1 community/profile-sync-daemon 6.40-1 (24.2 KiB 47.0 KiB)
    Symlinks and syncs browser profile dirs to RAM

But don’t use it anymore, due to constant crashes. This also happened on Manjaro (I just put up with it).

And it is not just me:

But that is all I can find.
