[Login Issue] Login Problem?

49 posts in this topic

I will try tomorrow in my laptop (I just installed Windows 7 on it) with Firefox 3.5.2...

Hopefully, it is something with my desktop, some extension or who knows what else.

PS: I already tried both http://www.msfn.org/board/ and http://msfn.org/board/

Thanks guys.

I had issues logging in from work in IE8.

To fix it I had to go to Internet Options and delete my browsing history:

I had to make sure I un-checked: "Preserve Favorites Website Data"

Since msfn is one of my favorites the cookies were not getting cleaned up for msfn.org. ;)

once I un-checked that new box in IE8 all was well with the world. ;)

Today, for the first time in quite a while I am being logged off fairly often. Anyone else? Enjoy, John.

I'm logged off every 1, 2 or 3 days. :(

Using SeaMonkey 1.1.17. I guess I'll try clearing the cookies.

Whenver I somehow get logged off, the only way I can get back is if I clear the cookies out and relaunch my browser. This prob only seems to happen after using the google search window on top of this page (or any other google search that yields an MSFN thread). 95 times out of 100, when I see a text only thread (as opposed to linear/standard/outline) I get logged out. I have to shut my browser off/clear cookies and relog back in. It's more of a pain... sometimes I just use two different browsers, one to post threads and another one to search threads.

I have been having increasing difficulty with being logged off the Forums. When returning to the forum after accessing another site, I am no longer logged in. Just now I had to clear my cookies and cache to be able to login. What can be done to prevent this? Thanks, John.

That's odd - it's still working fine here... FF 3.5.7 on Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Thanks, gamehead200. I should have said I am running IE8 on XP x64. Thanks, John.

I'm now invisible to the forum? Why is this so? I didn't change anything. I also see that the last logon of other persons are set to private. Is this a bug?

We're in the middle of an upgrade, and weird things are happening with the old (current) board. Hopefully once we migrate this will all be resolved, but for right now it's just going to be ........ weird :).

since yesterday, I have to logon everytime I visit msfn.org. Deleting the cookies doesn't help. I'm using Frefox 3.6 on Vista Sp2 with UAC on. Any ideas?

I'm having the login cookie issue as well with Firefox 3.6 on Win7 Home Premium x64. Above fixes about temp files and cache don't work. Haven't bothered trying IE.

I'm not the kind of person that likes to say: "Me too", but...

"Me too" :whistle:

Using XP and IE7 at the moment, I have to log on each time I revisit the site and when I try to reply using

"Full edit" I sometimes get the errormessage that my operation wasn't legal (or something similar to that)

and should be logged in, while it clearly says at the top-left "Logged in as: VideoRipper ( Log Out )" :unsure:

Greetz,

Peter.

Easy, just don't go to the site anymore. If you want to make sure you don't log back into the site. Log-out and then delete all the MSFN cookies. Then if you ever come back to the site, you will be a Guest.

Don't mean to be a pest, but the login issue still isn't fixed for me. Any ideas besides what's been given? I'm using Win7 x64 Home Premium and Firefox 3.6. Thanks.

*I just edited the member_id cookie's expiration date to expire in 2 years, instead of seconds after it's created. Seems to work. Odd solution though.
