Oddly a type of message I like. You found the fix for yourself and then shared it with the rest of us instead of abandoning the question.

Gah!

I think that might change if you log in to google (of course you'll need a google account). Google is usually good at remembering your settings.

I swear I used to stay signed in to my google account after closing and reopening my Kobo browser. I just did a factory reset and re-setup my Glo. And now I don't stay signed into my google account in the browser. Am I misremembering? Do you stay signed in? How?! Instapaper is still loyally staying signed in for me...
