So you go on a website to work on something and than 30 minutes later it just times out and expires on you. It could be really annoying sometimes. I know we can't change the cookie settings so I am kinda curious to see if you guys have any solutions or third party apps that handles this kind of situation .

The two main things that you can track:
  1. if You go the login page, usually there is also check box, where is written - Stay signed in (mark it with v)
  2. do not use such VPN, where IP changing regularly.

The link was for a plugin to modify cookies, including expiration date. Some sites except a cookie passed it's original expiration date, others don't.

It works better for sites that use location cookies and ones that don't use HTTPS. For those sites it didn't work, I used Tab Mix Plus to auto reload the page every 60 seconds. ProTip; disable predictive links to help prevent memory leaks caused by reloading same page over and over.

Addon "Auto Refresh Plus"

 

Used it a while ago, it worked perfectly.

Thanks bud, I've been using Auto Refresh add-ons for a long time too and they're great on regular websites; however, if you're watching a video online, its probably not a good idea to make the page refresh. It could be really annoying. 

 

Hopefully we can find something that can magically change the expiration time of the cookies
