    On about the 8th time through this delightfully recursive process, I finally get in to post.

    Happens with Chrome and IE10 on Win7.
    Happens from FF and Chromium from Xubuntu 13.04.
    Happens from Lubuntu 12.04 with Opera.
    Clearing the cache/cookies does not help.


    Why are y'all doin' this to us?

    Well that's my only idea scuppered. From day one it has worked fine for me.
    Edit: Could this be a wifi problem?

    _coldraven_ Since I do not use WiFi, no.

    What cookie-related settings are required?

    And, even though I see my username in the orange bar at top, once again I am told I must refresh the page and login before trying again.

    Not a very constructive response but....I'm on vanilla Xubuntu x64 13.04 with FF. No problems at all.

    I'm using a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04.3.
    FF is set to accept cookies,accept third party cookies and keep until I close FF.
    Closing FF also deletes the cache and history.
    It should work on the default settings so I'm at a loss to explain your problems.
    What happens if you try to log in from a different location?

    Does _not_ happen from my phone using Chrome. However, that ain't a viable solution. Help for this problem is requested; I've answered every query and provided all requested information, and surely would like it to work.

    In the last few days, this has been happening to me too. My sessions expire within minutes it seems. This is becoming more hassle than its worth......

    Hi Guys,

    As stated in another post, I've increased the default session timeout from 2 hours to 6. Is this still a problem?
