    Site not remembering login

    I have the remember box checked and still have to login. I'm pretty sure it's not firefox because it auto logins on other sites. I don't post as much as I used to but when you go to post thinking your logged in, it can be a real pain.

    TIA

    This may seem silly, but are you allowing the forums to set a cookie?

    I get that error occasionally when I have a forum window open and I click on a link in an email (since I get updates mailed to me).

    Re: Site not remembering login

    I have the Ubuntu cookies saved and have my cookies set for this session only. This setup usually works for my login sites. I will reset the cookies to normal and retest.

    jdong I am posting this from a Firefox window where I closed every thing down and reopened a new browser window. I will retest and post back.

    I fixed it I opened firefox set cookies to normal logged in set cookies to this session and closed firefox, reopened firefox and worked fine. I guess it just needed a new cookie.

    Thanks

    I *always* have to log in manually - I thought it was a glitch in either my browser (Mozilla 1.73/1.75) or the forum software...

    I fixed it but instead of a new post I edited my last post. Check it out. They have been doing some work on the site, so I figure I had to get a new cookie.

    Firefox doesn't remember my ubuntuforums password

    The 1st time I logged into ubuntuforums with my username and password, firefox prompted me to save them.

    However every time I return to this site, only my username is present in the login box.

    It seems to me that when logging in, the password field is blanked. Maybe it blanked the password before firefox got a chance to save it?

    This happens on my ubuntu box and on my work windows box running firefox. Strangely enough, opera has no problem remembering my username and password with the wand.

    Any ideas?

    Some people do seem to have this problem with firefox, because of vbb's (our forum software) security features (i.e. blanking the password.)
