Remaining logged on is fine for me, but I'm still having issues with the "Quote Selected" button. I'm using FireFox (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8). Does anyone else have this problem (or even better a solution as I'm getting bored of typing

I always use the same computer (my Zaurus sl5500 Sharp ROM 2.38), the same browser (Opera 7.30), have my browser set to accept cookies, and always check the box "Remember me on this computer".

However, I still almost always (i.e., 95% of the time) have to log on fresh every time. OESF almost never remembers me and I haven't been able to figure out why.

The only thing I can think of is maybe you check our IP addresses? My ISP assigns the IP address based on which computer I reach there, and they have many, many addresses....for sure over a dozen.

I am always amazed that other sites recognize me and OESF doesn't.

There isn't any pattern that I can detect that makes a difference which bookmark I use to get there...which is why I wonderr if you're first looking at the IP addresses we're logging on from, instead of just looking at our cookie files.

Likewise. I log on from work, my house and my parents' house. Between those, I have windows, mac, linux and PDA. No issues here.

Hmmm. So how do I figure out why oesf almost never remembers me when I allow cookies and always check the 'remember me' box? Do I take the question to another subforum?

I do have cookies that work fine elsewhere, so there's something odd going on here.

Thanks,

I've been doing more testing and tweaking, and noticed that the following link results in no check box asking if I want to be remembered:

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?

Checking the box on screens where I find the box still does not result in my being remembered, but wanted to point the above out.

Also, maybe my trouble is partly due to having images turned off, which should not be required to get cookies to work?

I finally figured out that, at least for my particular browsers (lynx, links, and Opera 7.30), the only way that oesf will remember me is if I do not log out when I leave. Otherwise, the cookies are set for me to have to enter login name and password.
