What could be clearing Firefox Cache?

I'm accessing a remote desktop Windows server. I have installed Firefox Portable. When I login to the site I reach two-factor authentication. I've authenticated it manually and ticked the box 'Don't ask for codes on this device'.

Each time I relaunch Firefox it works without having to reauthenticate, but each time I close the remote connection and reconnect, the Firefox cache appears to have cleared and I have to go through 2 factor authentication again.

Have you any idea why the cache would be clearing? I sometimes run CCleaner manually but even when I do that, I can still login without 2-factor, so I don't think it is ccleaner causing the problem. I think it is something to do with reconnecting to the server.

I use an IP address to login and that doesn't change. I've checked whatsmyip.org and it matches what I login with.

Does this happen when using

Does this happen when using regular Firefox? Have you considered this to be an issue with Firefox and not the portable edition?

Disk Cache Disabled

Firefox Portable is set with disk cache disabled by default. You will need to re-enable it if you want some things saved between settings. Open settings and select Options - Advanced - Network to find the setting.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
