Since this is only happening with you, there is something definitely wrong with your setup at your end.
I also have this problem, have done for years. Sometimes it's been less of an issue, login stays 'live' for hours, recently it's back to kicking me from the forum in less than an hour, even though I remain logged in at the main site.

Pale Moon (x86 currently, though I see no difference with x64) on W7 Pro, user agent default - Firefox 60.9 (again, currently, as it incrementally increases to match the approx. FF version).

Tell sites I don't want to be tracked: enabled (currently, has varied, will test again).

Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control ~ last two days only, so irrelevant.

Browser sessions might be anywhere from ~3 days to 40+.

I suspect it might be the UTM on vBulletin triggering the 'logout', as PM's fingerprint will change with time/visit. I don't think Eldon uses PM here though, so there may be multiple triggers.

Login procedure:
Click existing pinned tab, click New Posts, get bounced to the login page, login, bounced to the "Sorry, unrecognized username or password", click Login.

If instead I click the main header to visit the Home page from the pinned tab, I'm logged in (to Drupal?), can make Replies to Comments, etc. but on going to the Forum, I need to relog.

Cookie specifics:
Would upload an attachment but "Your file of 278.6 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 97.7 KB for this filetype."!
