I’m not sure if this has anything to do with the new RC design however I am using a different computer. On my old one I have not logged onto Remote Central in along time - I have remember me set. So what, well on this computer I cannot get either Firefox or Opera to remember me, IE is okay worst luck!

So, each time I post I have to re-enter my user id and password. A cunning ploy to slow down my drivel, could be :-)

I’ve checked both browsers and the cookies are set okay, although I notice Firefox still has problems with the time zone, they both work okay on my other computer which was set up after the RC site change over. All browsers are up-to-date and there is the same version on each computer.

Any thoughts anyone? Tell me if I’ve over looked the obvious I often tend to.

OK, that actually was a problem... due to some restructuring
of where forum programs are, the new cookie had to be
set at a lower directory level (/cgi-bin/) than it was
before (/cgi-bin/mboard/). It was setting the new cookie
fine under /cgi-bin/, but when it requested that cookie
from the browser it was instead getting the old /cgi-bin/mboard/
one (for most cases).

One way past this would have been to get users to delete
all of their cookies, but instead of that I've just given
it a new name. So *going forward* cookies will work properly,
and the timeout is currently 5 hours (was 6 hours originally).

This isn't working for me now. I am using Firefox 1.5.0.7 on Mac OS X.

Until today, I was unaware of this whole thread and this change to the remotecentral forums that occurred in August.

I don't believe I had logged out of remotecentral for several months. However, while doing some house-cleaning, I deleted all my cookies. Now, I cannot log in to remotecentral.com and have it stick so that it says "Logged in as: gcoville". It always comes back with login/password boxes.

I tried totally new installations of Firefox, totally cleaned out my Firefox preferences (in Library/Application Support/Firefox), and still it wont behave.

Fortunately, I had saved a copy of my old preferences before I deleted all my cookies. I am able to edit my current cookies.txt file so that I am logged into remotecentral.com. Here are some details.

When logging into remotecentral.com: the following cookies are set:

www.remotecentral.com FALSE /cgi-bin/forums/members/ FALSE 1325376022 timezone -8|1|0
www.remotecentral.com FALSE /cgi-bin/forums/members/ FALSE 1325375999 nam gcoville|mypasswordremoved


...and that doesn't have me logged in.

If I quit Firefox, edit my cookies.txt file so that they say this instead:

www.remotecentral.com FALSE /cgi-bin FALSE 1325376022 timezone -8|1|0
www.remotecentral.com FALSE /cgi-bin FALSE 1325375999 nam gcoville|mypasswordremoved


...things work fine.

I hope this information is helpful in getting this problem sorted out, or at least to help anyone else in this situation get themselves logged in.

Looks like Firefox handles cookies differently than IE. Try now.

Has anyone else noticed a post number link anomaly between IE and FireFox?

For example this link should take you to post 49 of this thread. In IE this works, but FireFox only takes you to the top of the page; in this case, page 3.

My Firefox 1.5.0.7, which is the latest release, takes me to post 49 of this thread, dj. (in a new tab..... which might be the way I have it set up in the tabs configuration)

What version of Firefox are you using, dj?
