Why can’t I stay logged into MakeUseOf in my browser?

What could possibly cause my browser to log me out of my MakeUseOf account all the time? I have been unable to earn points for months by now. Whenever the page refreshes or I open an article, I am no longer logged in. Even if I’m logged in, my Facebook like is unable to award me points.

    This is often related to third party cookies (the logon is not done by the MakeUseOf servers themselves but by a different service). For Firefox, see instruction on how to control those at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-third-party-cookies?esab=a&s=third+party+cookies&r=0&as=s .

    It's likely you've blocked the cookie that keeps you logged in to MakeUseOf, or have an add-on that deletes the cookie between sessions or page refreshes.
