Not-staying-signed-in problem....

Steve Green Nov 12, 2012 09:11 PM

Annoying weirdness that crops up from time to time:

I click my CH bookmark (which opens to the most recent threads on all forums). Occasionally I forget to sign in, and just click on a thread. Then I notice I'm not signed in, click the back button, and sign in. When I then click on the thread I was looking at before signing in, hey presto, I'm again not signed in.

Second scenario, similar but different: I'm looking at a thread, and notice I'm not signed in. I sign in while still in the thread, then click the back button to get back to the "most recent threads", where I started. Again, become "unsigned-in".

What to do? Am I missing something obvious here? Current FF browser, BTW.

    It's using the back button that makes it appear as if you're not signed in. Just refresh the page you backed up to, and you'll be good to go.

      Nope, that doesn't work.
