Log in never remembered

Post by coughcapkittykat » Mon Aug 16, 2010 1:40 am

Can someone tell me of this is an issue on my end or just something on these forums?

Even if I check the remember login option and make firefox remember my password i can never seem to be automatically logged in.

You may have Firefox set to clear everything, including cookies, on exiting the program.

Thanks Povster. I don't have it set to do that, I have just checked and I rarely even close firefox - for most other forums there is no problem with this.

Well, it's not that important but thanks for letting me know that it's something on my end rather than the forum's, I'll have a look in to it.

This could happen when you delete spy-ware as well as doing an optimizing on Internet Explorer....just a thought............... :wink:

This is definitely an issue with the way you computer is handling cookies, I would say that either:
1) Your browser is not accepting cookies
2) Your browser is not retaining cookies
Remember that cookies are the only way that the forums have of keeping track of things. If you wish to handle things manually, just make sure that cookies from forums.chandrakantha.com are retained and displayed.

Theoretically this could leave you open to being inundated with a gazillion ads such as
“I restored my manhood by buying XYZ Tablas”
or
“Are you spending too much on sitar mortgage, refinance now!”
But quite frankly I have a hard time seeing that happen;-)

No issue with my browser (Chrome) which remembers the credentials OK.

thanks for the advice David, and everyone else.

It is really strange because Firefox remembers the login name and password but I have to manually click ´log in´each time, and I rarely close firefox and at the moment have multiple tabs open all the time from this forum.

I have set firefox to remember history so it is accepting all cookies (i believe anyway, this option removes the cookies options). I have also tried deleting existing cookies from here and logged in again but still the same result.

It's not an issue really, I don't mind just pressing 'log in' each time i visit. I'm thinking maybe it is something to do with an add-on I have installed, maybe adblock plus or something. But nevermind, no big deal really.

Check and see if the box which says "Automatically start Firefox in a private Browsing Session" is checked. If so then you will definitely have problems.
