I logged in at the top left setting session length to 1 hour.

The next morning I was still logged in, contrary to my expectations.

I guess I must remember to log out manually?

Was the browser closed? If it stays open the session may still be considered "in use" and may only terminate an hour after the browser is closed if you don't come back to it before then.

Not sure of the exact mechanism but it seems a straight forward statement "session length = 1 hour" should end in 1 hour regardless.

My browser logs me in unless I tell it specifically not to do that for a given site so I think it maintains the active session data.
Manually logout just to be sure the session is ended.

The machine was powered down with the browser still open.  When relaunching the browser the next day, the tabs were restored automatically and I was still logged in.  I logged out manually after some time.

When I got back to my usual computer this afternoon, I had been logged out of its session there.  Not sure which action caused that (logging in elsewhere, manually logging out, something else).

My sessions behave essentially the same way between work machine and home machine, the browser will attempt to restore tabs and logins unless explicitly told not to, and, logout at work logs out at home too, FF server stores session status. FF server is supposed to track session status.
