    session or cookie problem

    when I log into AO I loose my authentication after about 5 min... it's like the site forgets I've logged in... think u have a problem with ur session handling og maybe a error in a cookie or something... oh btw, I run the Mozilla browser (linux)...

    (it took me three tries to post this... this bug is really annoying hehe)

    cheers!

    zion1459,

    It could be due to many different things. For example, have you recently installing a firewall or something similar? You could have some restricted permissions to your cookies now, so please veriffy this. Or maybe you could try reinstalling Mozilla or upgrading it to the last version.

    Ah!!! one more thing, some AO members have asked about this before so it could be an AO problem with some users accounts.

    Good luck!!!

    Zion,

    maybe you already have, but make you sure have enabled cookies in your profile.

    Check these settings in your site options and set them to yes.

    Automatically login when you return to the site? (uses cookies) yes

    Browse board with cookies?

    Clicking yes will use cookies to keep your id for this session. Clicking no will send it through the links. (Selecting no may cause problems when sharing links with people behind the same proxy as you) yes
    Also, are you using an program to automatically kill your temp internet files/cookies?

    I have also experienced some problems with this going through the proxy at school.
    It is setup to automatically dump temp files/internet files and cookies every so often.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
