MyConsole

Don't require changing password every 60 days - it's unnecessarily excessive.

Longer period of time before timeout or selective timeout

Can the timeout be increased substantially (or be set as a preference by the user) so that I don't have to enter my password every time I return to MyConsole? I would like to open MyConsole at the beginning of my day and refer to it as needed. However, the timeout occurs very quickly and I need to re-enter my password almost every time.

Passwords

There is no reason for having these constant password changes. This only makes it more difficult to use.

My USPTO

Firm vs. Individual Users

It's not clear whether you are setting up a system in which every member of a firm who files an application would need a separate uspto.gov account or whether the account should be in the name of a single firm administrator. It appears that you want individual accounts, however, firms typically use a single email address for all uspto correspondence, so it is not possible for individuals to each set up an account.
