    A couple of days ago, TPF started requiring that I log in every time I came here. I checked off the "Remember me" box, but it seems to have a short memory, because the next time I come to the Forum, it doesn't remember me. :eek-73:

    Is there a problem, or am I doing something wrong. Please let me know as this is very frustrating and is the only forum that seems to be requiring this login on every visit. :BangHead:

    I think you have to enable the cookie in your internet browser.

    Have you changed how your cookies are saving for your browser? The forum requires your cookies saved and kept to remember your log-in.

    If "cookies" not being saved is the problem, then why is this the only Forum where I have this problem?

    Assuming it is the problem, then how do I set up to have my "cookies" saved in Firefox, because I don't seem to be able to find anything on any of the Toolbar items that refers to "cookies"?

    Silly question, but are you clicking "Stay logged in" when logging in? Ever since the forum was "upgraded" a day or so ago, I noticed that I had to re-login and I forgot to check the button several times.

    Every time! I made note of this in my initial posting.

    In Firefox go to preferences (under Firefox in the menu bar) then Privacy and then History, and see what is set.
