Automatically mounting all volumes at boot

This used to be the default behaviour, IIRC.

I keep a lot of non-critical stuff on a FAT32 volume shared with
Windows. I have put it into /etc/fstab manually; this worked at first,
but for some reason, it keeps mounting RO & I have to do a `sudo
umount /dev/sdb6` command to unmount it, then use Nautilus to remount
it for all users as RW.

What I'd rather like is the way Ubuntu /used/ to handle this in years
gone by: to just automatically mount all visible drives at boot time.

I've Googled but I can't find an easy way of achieving this. Is there one?
