losing persistent login
« on: April 27, 2013, 04:08:44 PM »

I browse using Firefox and had to do a reset as it was hanging when I clicked Google links.  Cured google, but then recently .. when enter to melnet my 'log in forever'  hasn't worked. Minor issue to do that, but I'm not sure if it's my browser or may be a server issue?  Has anyone else had a problem toward the end of this week? Chris

Ok for me also using Firefox.   Have you tried clearing cache, cookies, history etc?

That's useful, thanks. Firefox issue if there've been no changes at Melnet. I'll post back here if I get a solution.

haven't had that
Have lost "recent unread topics" as in
- login - 2 pages to browse
- read one topic
- go back, down to 4 topics (or other random number from 0-about 5)
Most frustrating

It's a Firefox bug of some sort.   Explore Options/Privacy/History selector ...

I've long had this as "Use custom settings for History" and it's been rock stable. Since my "reset" when I set this up it sets itself back to "Never remember History" next time Firefox is restarted.

That shouldn't matter as the melnet "cookie" is still on my drive .. but FF somehow fails to pick up on it! I'll report this rather odd behavior into bugzilla.mozilla.org  and I guess it'll be sorted in due course. Meanwhile the fix (for me) is to set it to "Always remember History"
