You are most likely calling browser.quit() or possible browser.close()
somewhere. The trick is not to do that until you are done using that
browser instance. Unfortunately, it is hard to say more without seeing
your code. Please share more details about your code and we might be
able to help you better. Details include the step from where you call
close() or quit() on your browser abstraction.

I your scenarios pass and your only problem is that the browser is
shut down between every execution, I would expect that the closing is
done either in your last then step or in an after hook.

Sorry for being vague, but without more details it is hard to be more concrete.

I would even go further and say that it can be desirable to close the
browser after a scenario to ensure a clean setup.
If you now run into the problem that your test is taking to long, you need
to change the way you are automating your tests.
If you need the browser to stay open so you can share state between
scenario's, well, don't do that.
