why the new logoff option?
Suddenly I notice that the green password manager toobar icon no longer automatically logs you out upon closing web browser. Now I have to perform the extra step of manually logging off. If I forget to do that, someone who opens browser will see all my passwords.

I have been unable to reproduce this issue. Can you please provide more information about the environment you are seeing this in? What browser and OS are you using? Are you using any other extensions or plugins with this browser?
I did reproduce this when signing into PWM and closing the browser and opened the browser and I was still signed in. I tried again to reproduce this and signed into PWM and closed the browser and I was signed out. :@
I am using W 10 here and just ABP in Firefox
I'll have the team look into this further with that environment.
Thank you for your help!;)
?, how long did you wait before reopening Firefox after closing it? It could be that the process did not end before you restarted the browser.
I did exit the browser though.
I've tried to reproduce this in Firefox and Chrome. I waited a minute before opening these browsers and I can't produce this issue. When I open my browsers I am signed out!
I'm thinking this is caused by the process failing to end as I've been unable to reproduce beyond the time that I immediately reopened it. I'm going to wait until the original poster responds with details about their particular instance of this, but I believe that is the cause. Thank you as always for the help!!
I am using Windows 8.1. When I tried this with Chrome, it properly and automatically signed me out of password manager, so that when I re-opened Chrome 30 sec later, I was signed out and had to sign back in.
Thank you for the information. Can you please sign into the password manager, exit your browser and then restart your computer and check for me. It is very possible that the firefox process did not shut down properly.
Thanks, James G and y'all for the help and interest.
It is likely that the reboot was the fix here. Sometimes a process does not shut down correctly(in this case, firefox) and that could cause some weird issues. If you see anything like this again please do not hesitate to let us know!
Thank yo for letting us know! That's great that Webroot PW Manager has been fixed for you!
