If your start signal to the starter solenoid goes too weak to start when warm, then a quick easy fix is to simply add a Ford Remote Starter Solenoid. It is probably the best thing Ford ever did because it will get a full and solid 12V signal to the starter solenoid for a very positive switching to kick the gear out.
In fact this is something any engine would benefit by because it ensures full voltage to the solenoid and removes the problem of bad ignition switch connections, long and too small of harness wires, etc... It takes a weak signal input and sends a strong signal output. For $15-20 depending on which one you buy, it is a good viable option if not the best option short of rewiring the harness to the switch.

Again, car started fine cold, but drive to store and come back out and it won't start. Cleaning all battery cables and connections helped it for a few months, but problem came back because really it is the ignition switch and small wiring.

But if you have the switch out, you can perform a good fix by using Kev's Steering Column Rebuild thread here:
