    Default Log-in issues

    Sorry if this subject has been covered. I did a search but ran out of time after 18 pages!! After years of staying logged-in, all of a sudden I'm being asked to log-in. It started a few days ago...sometimes asked, sometimes not. Now I'm being asked each time when on my computer but not on my Kindle. Or, is that the problem; checking HT from more than one source? I've used a Kindle or iPod to occasionally log-in for over 6 months with no log-in issues 'til the last few days. Just curious what I might be doing wrong.

    Tutu, have any setting changed on your rigs(comps/kindle/tablet/smartphone)? Might be that maybe your cache or cookies were somehow deleted.

    Could also very well be something from the server side of things, but, I too am always logged in from home, but haven't been prompted to re-enter any info to get here.

    hopefully Ryan will chime in.

    From previous experience even through you check on the option Remember Me?, who is doing the remembering is not the HawaiiTreads web site but rather what ever browser you are using at the time.

    So if you use one browser and you entered the HawaiiThreads web site by typing http://www.hawaiithreads.com as the URL and then click on the Remember Me? while logging in, your browser will remember your login for as long as you are referencing any web page that starts off with http://www.hawaiithreads.com.

    If by some chance you reference a page that says http://hawaiithreads.com your browser will not catch it since it was set for http://www.hawaiithreads.com.

    One workaround which I haven't tried is to also reference this web site by http://hawaiithreads.com and click on the Remember Me? option.

    Thx Tatt and Helen. Tatt, I hadn't changed any settings so I tried Helen's suggestion. We'll see if that works tomorrow morning! It's lights out time for me!

    Poop! I've logged in both with and without the www and checked "remember me". I still have to log-in each time on my computer. Certainly not the end of the world, but...

    Computer = Firefox
    Kindle = proprietary
    iPod = Safari
    Only have an issue with Firefox and only recently.

    Any idea on the version of Firefox that you are using? I also take it that the computer is a Macintosh?

    However at this point in the time will need to compare notes on other people who use Firefox.

    Chrome here, but there were similar issues for me a couple of "latest version upgrades" ago.

    Had to clear out the cache, cookies, and browser history then all was well in the WWWorld.

    Helen...I'm not on my computer right now so I don't know the Firefox version. However, it's always the latest version. Last update was awhile ago so I don't think that's the problem. I'll let you know once I'm at my, yes, Mac!!

    Tatt...I'll try doin' what you did!!!

    Thx for the help, you 2.

    So...I cleared everything awhile back. Didn't help. Now I'm being asked to log in more than once a day. Once logged in, when I submit a reply, I get a dialogue box saying I'm not logged in and to log in again! I don't mind once a day but now it's getting excessive...and frustrating. I'm not going to bother Ryan with this right now.

    Hmmm...still sounds like a cookie issue to me (but I can't offer any more help than that not-much-help comment). Are you using a "do not track" option on your browsers?

    Tutu, I suggest you run a free application called "CCleaner". It will clear all your cookies and reset everything. It works for me. After running the application, you will have to sign in to each of your remembered sites the first time you sign on.

    My email address book was hacked today sending out the "Amy Livingston" scam to everyone on the list. Very embarrassing! To clear the problem, I ran CCleaner and changed the password on my email account.

    Did you remember to check the little "Remember Me" box just below the log in info area?

    if things have been cleared out, and cleaned, then it will need to be checked again to stay logged in. . . I know we already covered it, just throwing out my sometimes useless $.02

    I will give a +1 to the Freeware CCleaner program, good stuff. NOTE: Sometimes it will recognize parts of your registry, or system files, and will recommend them to be removed. . . if you do, it starts a whole new world of hurt, so just read through it all carefully.

    Alos, hitman pro v.3+(I can't recall what incarnation they are on), it's a Dutch program, so DL in English if you decide to check it out. It is a great comprehensive program to root out malware, spyware, registry issues, cookies that get buried and buried, cache info that gets buried. . . it's pretty solid.

    Thanks to each of you. Looks like I'm going to have to set aside some time to devote to this.

    Tatt...yes, I've been clicking remember me every time...just in case!!!

    Are you still on Firefox 12 or did you upgrade to Firefox 13? Also are there any other web browsers available on your Macintosh? If so would it be possible to try HawaiiThreads on those other browers? You don't have to switch your day to day web browsing to the other browser.

    FF 13 now, Helen.
    I just tried Safari. I had to log in initially. Then I quit Safari, reopened it and I stayed logged in.
    Does that help?

    My Safari 5.1.7 stays logged in all the time.. and when I leave the Mac, turn off Safari and then come back the next day... login is automatic, and I'm in without having to enter username and PW.

    With Firefox I have to login for every new session.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Interesting, Mel. I permanently stayed logged in on Firefox 'til about 6 weeks ago. Not you. And we're both using Macs. The plot thickens!

    I'm on Firefox 13 on a PC, but I've not had a login issue like this ever; almost any time I open HT I am automatically logged in (just as it sounds like you used to be, Sue). I think you need to find a techie to come by and see if they can identify what hidden setting on your Mac is causing this issue.

    Yep, 7 years of automatic log-ins 'til recently. In life's big picture it's not really important. But it drives me crazy to not know why it happened...one day...out of the blue! Maybe it's the Universe's way of telling me to spend less time on the computer!!!
