Logging user out when browser closes

Website Troubleshooting
I was told by default Wordpress makes your login cookie expire on browser close. Unfortunately, that is not happening with my website. I have also installed plugin Configure Login timeout. But that isn't helping with ending the session when the user closes the browser. Is there something I can do to update this?

Thank you for your question on logging out of WordPress. In searching, I came across a possible fix:

1 )Open the file “login-with-ajax.source.js” inside the widget directory and copy the whole code inside it, then paste the code into the file “login-with-ajax.js” and save. This gives you an un-minified version of code to edit.
2) Search for the function “getPostData” and add the below lines after el = $(el);

if(el.is('input:checkbox') && !(el.is(':checked'))) {

Please give that a try and let us know how it works out.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
