I performed the 10 steps listed below and from them I conclude that to shutdown and restart Firefox leaves the local LastPass Firefox addon not logged in to the LastLass server (icon=grey) but the session ID on the LastPass server remains and is unchanged. Also the active session number remains unchanged. To log in with the icon (grey-->red) changes the session ID but not the active secession.
What does this indicate?
STEP 1 At https://lastpass.com/sess.php
,killed all bur current session.
STEP 2 With icon, logged in (gray-->red). (current session still shows with https://lastpass.com/sess.php
STEP 3 With icon, logged out. (No session shows at shows with https://lastpass.com/sess.php
It switched to a login page at https://lastpass.com/?ac=1&from_uri=%2Fsess.php
STEP 4 With https://lastpass.com/my.php
,page asks me to login. Closed page.
STEP 5 With icon, logged in. https://lastpass.com/sess.php
shows session as KnxFKBpa2...
STEP 6 With icon still red, closed Firefox with [File][Exit].
STEP 7 Restarted Firefox. Icon is grey. https://lastpass.com/sess.php
shows a current session.https://lastpass.com/debug.php
shows session as KnxFKBpa2... (same as before restarting Firefox.)
LastPass icon is still grey. Clicking it prompts for login. It prompts for email and password, even though I previously checked "remember email" -- I have never checked "remember password".
STEP 8 With the session ID=KnxFKBpa2... according to https://lastpass.com/debug.php?cmd=session
and the icon=grey, I logged in with the icon which changed to red. The session ID changed from KnxFKBpa2... to mIYN55PYD... and https://lastpass.com/sess.php
displays a single session.
STEP 9 With https://lastpass.com/sess.php
I shut down & restarted Firefox. Session was still:
Session ID=mIYN55PYD... ,icon grey.
STEP 10 With icon, logged in, grey-->red,
session ID=mIYN55PYD... -->j,iPRbZb3...
Active session still same =c-73-65-23-204.hsd1.mn.comcast.net
