[not a bug] "Stay logged in" option not working with "Sign in with Steam"

Hello,

As in Topic Title, every time I close the browser (firefox) or even after some period of time (about half an hour) I must log in again.

I deleted all cookies.

Regards,
PM

I didn't, now I have and it works.
Thanks and sorry for bothering you.

It's fine, it's quite hidden. Soon, I'm just going to make it so cookies are used by default for all logins with a plain notice about it. That way there's no confusion.

Update: done, they now just require cookies rather than messing with checkboxes hidden in the user settings.
