BZBB relogin issue...

I am using Firefox 2 and I accept all cookies until they expire, yet each time I come to BZBB it does not log me in automatically, yet I still have the cookie. I have to log in again each and every visit. Any ideas?

OS? did you check the "log me on automaticly" thing? Has your little brother been playing with the settings lately?

me1: Windows XP SP2; yes; no, and I don't have any younger siblings, let alone anybody else that uses my computer, except for the occasional robber.

Strange, on mac it doesn't happen on Safari, on mac Firefox it did.

It has to do with the link I was using (bzbb.bzflag.org over my.bzflag.org/bb/)

On my new windows it does the same on firefox, it's something to do with PHPBB, maybe there should only be one domain for the boards?


I seriously think the bzflag domains should be fixed... or "organized"


Asked this before but, what is the official domain for the boards? aka the one in the phpbb config?

did anyone check the setting "delete cookies on closing" in firefox prefs?

Mine just started doing this suddenly as well. I did not change any settings what-so-ever. But it seems that mine does it completely at random :? . Sometimes I can come here 3 times in a row and sometimes I have to repeatedly log back in.

can you log in three times in a row without closing all the browser windows, and then you can't autologin when you close all the browser windows and open the browser again?

I login once. Close the window. Open the window and Im still logged in.

That happens, but sometimes after I close the window and reopen, I must log back in.

Try clearing your browsers cache, I have had no problems with this on my Firefox for mac...Also, make sure it CAN accept cookies, as well as allowing it some room for cache storage...there are some other things that i have yet to test...

General rule of thumb, us http://my.bzflag.org/bb/
(correct me if I'm wrong)

And clearing your cache and all your bzflag cookies might help.

There are a few things that can make the cookie go MIA. As BinarySpike mentioned, use that address. Another thing is that some links to threads might contain a session ID string from another session, which will wipe your current session. So you might want to investigate a little more as to what exact situation causes this to happen, and then report back once you have a clear process for duplication.
