I use Ubuntu 16.04 x64 installed in my Dell i7 machine. I installed Google Chrome Stable Version 53.0.2785.101 (64-bit). It was working fine until I experienced a weird issue yesterday: It just doesn't hold cookies.
I mean, all accounts signed in gets automatically logged out when ever I restart my machine (not browser). If I restart my browser, it just works fine and still logged in. But, when I restart my machine, all accounts like Google, Facebook, etc., gets logged out and I am forced to login again, authenticate 2 step verification, and save the browser (aka trust this browser).
I googled out this issue, and came across "delete cookies and site data once the browser is closed" option, but that's not the case I'm experiencing. My cookies are deleted only when I restart my machine, not my browser.
And, this issue doesn't happen on Firefox and Chromium installed in my Ubuntu.
Ring any bells?
Update: I have tried reinstalling Chrome, deleting data locations (/home/.config/google-chrome, /home/.cache/google-chrome, etc).
