Default I forgot how to stay logged in.

I am 99% sure I used to be able to do this, but now I can't remember. I have third party cookies disallowed in Firefox, but an exception for :ff: and it still keeps logging me off every couple of minutes.

Does anyone know how to do this, or why FF and only FF keeps logging me off?

Man, I wish this forum had some kind of moderators or something.

Also, when I was searching for this, I accidentally reread this whole thread, and I miss Trans Am Jesus.

It's just you, isn't it? Logging me off manually.

Do you, when logging in with your cookie exception, also check "Remember Me?"?

Default Re: I forgot how to stay logged in.

Yeah, I usually remember to tell it to remember, but that never helps.

Maybe some other guys set to disallow third party cookies and see if you stay logged in so I can narrow down where the problem is?

Default Re: I forgot how to stay logged in.

Serious question, did you try it without checking "Remember Me"?

I seem to remember something about the taps being switched a million years ago, but those were different taps, but they're all kind of related.

Also I said this before but just in case you missed it: Are you sure you're actually logged out? Sometimes on the forum's front page it says I'm not logged in, but if I navigate directly to something I need to be logged in for, like a search, it turns out I was logged in the whole time.

Or maybe just clear your cookies? How has no one suggested that yet! :shakecookie:

Default Re: I forgot how to stay logged in.

Yeah, I'm actually logged out. I always get that thing where it thinks I'm logged out when I'm at the main page, but this is getting logged out for reals.

I'm going to try not clicking the remember box as soon as it logs me back out.

I have also blown my cookies a bunch of times.

In case anyone finds this thread looking for the technical solution:

1. From the File menu, select Quit.

2. Confirm that you would like to close all 37 (or other number) open tabs.

3. Allow browser to close completely.

4. Restart the browser from the Application menu or applicable shortcut.

I let LastPass save me from myself. It's set to automatically log me in whenever the screen of nag occurs.
