i just checked, i *AM* receiving the cookie:

Code: Select all


Also, that's not the session cookie (the timeout is set to 2007).

Watch out, I said the same thing, then it began............

I've never had a single issue at all with FF...until yesterday, when my computer blue screened..
Now FF opens in a window that covers the left half of my bookmarks are gone and not restorable, and it won't remember the position/size of the FF window after it's closed/reopened. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. (Found solution to this finally, yay FF with -safe-mode)

I reinstalled IE7RC1, so now I'm back to having to login each time.

Maybe has something to do with php settings?
You said you have limited direct access to the web server, does this mean you can't check the php.ini file?
Is your web server a Linux or Windows box?
Do you use caching of any sort with the webserver and/or forums?

(Similar to what Pup pointed out, with a little more detail) Something to consider is that sessions and cookies are 2 different things (yes I know there are session cookies, doesnt change that they are 2 seperate things), a Remember Me code (within a login script) would be using cookies in addition to sessions. It may just flat out be the fact your cookies are set to expire, if you can I would suggest, unless you feel there is some kind of risk in doing so, set cookies to not expire. I'm pretty sure (just as Pup said) that it's not a session thing, gotta be the cookies.

Then again it may just be IE7 and the fact it isn't fully complete, I've noticed quite a few things they've added in between each update/release.

Here's something odd for you..
While looking for a solution to this, my computer blue screened again. Upon rebooting and restarting IE and loading up HF, I clicked the forums link and it showed me as being logged in. After clicking the Web Server forum, I went to edit my post but there was no Edit button. I looked back to the top and noticed it had logged me out.

KC, it sounds like ya got a lot more issues than just how you're viewing the Hf website ;) Maybe you're about due for a format/reinstall? Or do ya have hardware issues?

I think I saw a bluescreen on XP about half a year back, when my HD went corrupt.

Nah, the problems I have are beyond IE (the blue screen was caused by a completely seperate program). I run a lot of beta software that I test, the latest of which is causing some blue screens (incompatibility issue with me having 2 sound cards installed/enabled). :P

The FF problem was merely cused by one blue screen happening while FF was open, not allowing it to save user state changes correctly.
