    Re: Login now by means of Ubuntu One SSO only

    I realize there is a session timeout in place, but I find that sometimes I'm logged out in the middle of a task, such as writing a post or PM. Having to log back in loses the data. I don't suppose anything can be done about that(?)

    You should get an option to restore saved content, at least for replies to a thread. For example I started this reply, closed the browser, re-opened, logged in, came back to same thread, replied again to your post & there was the option to restore in red at bottom of reply box.
    (obviously not an ideal path back but works.

    This was using FF on Win7 which does have some other issues with the new methods, FF on linux is a bit better.

    If I know I'll be here a while, (on FF with linux), then I'll edit the bb_sessionhash cookie & give it a date to expire
    (only lasts for 2 hrs of inactivity so date chosen is irrelevant

    In the past when being logged out during a reply (with the very short time out) I believe replies weren't being seen as activity, maybe that's still the case?? (though you should still get 2 hrs to retrieve & complete a post, ect.

    Make SSO login persistent?

    Is there any way to make the SSO login persistent across boots, as of old? I find it annoying to have to sign in all the time...

    Try allowing cookies for https://login.ubuntu.com/. It should remember you that way.

    Moved to Forum Feedback & Help

    The Ubuntu + 1 forum is for discussion of the development version of Ubuntu -- currently 13.10.

    Not really an Ubuntu Forums issue either, actually. This is one for Canonical IS.

    The Admins have been in discussion with Canonical IS about this. If one of them stops by, they can give you any details that they might be willing to.

    Is that something I should set in my browser (Chromium)? AFAIK I do not block cookies. I do run Ghostery, but that does not say anything other than blocking a facebook thing.

    I don't believe that will work, as coffeecat said:

    The cookie or session is set to expire after 2 hours anyway.

    As someone who is logging in 3-10 times a day at the moment you're not the only one who is eagerly waiting for the 'remember me' option.
