Everytime I try and view the Main Page now, I find myself looking at the Front Page for non-members.

I can be logged in, click on the BBG logo in the upper left and then immediately get dumped out and have to re-log in again. No matter what I do, I cannot view the logged in version of the Main Page (where my preferences for the order and # of postings in each forum are stored).

HELP!

Lemme guess. Firefox.

Ever since we switched our home computer (desktop--Windows Media XP) from IE to that Foxfirethingie, I have had this problem every single time. I can stay logged on for a few minutes or for a few seconds and then--poof--I'm off again and have to sign in again.

I'm not about to clear all my cache and history and lose all that info that I could never retrieve again (e.g. will I lose my autopassword for some sites? not willing to chance it). If that would even help.

No problems when I switched my laptop (Windows 2000) from IE to Chrome.

I have used Firefox since before 1.5 and have never had a login problem with BGG.

Right Click on a BGG page. Show Page Info. Permissions tab. Make sure Set Cookies is set to Allow.

We must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!

I've noticed the same thing using IE, but it seems to be more of an issue with the page not refreshing than the site forcing a logout.

Hitting the refresh button always "fixes" it.

Cookies are (were) enabled. The problem seems to have corrected itself after several hours. I did nothing - not even a restart of IE, but it is working now. Thanks for the repleis!
