Web Viewer resetting for every Item?

I apologize if this has been answered, but I can not seem to find it.


We have a database that uses fields to fill in some simple data in a web viewer. In Filemaker Pro Advanced 10 we would log into the website once (Username/Password) and we were able to remain logged in until we restarted Filemaker. The log in was saved across database entries and was very convenient.


We just upgraded the database to use Filemaker Pro Advanced 16 and the Web View resets for every entry and even if we leave an item an come back.


Is this normal or am I missing a setting in the new Filemaker?


Old Steps...

1.) Go to Database Entry Web Viewer Layout

2.) Web Viewer would try to access website and be diverted to Login Screen

3.) We would log in with our username/password

4.) Web Viewer would reload the item webpage

5.) Go to a new database entry

6.) Web Viewer would display the webpage of new item, no log in needed.
