    Login to Lounge (Firefox 3.0.5)

    For years, I have not logged out of the Lounge, and of course the next time I open the Lounge, I'm logged in. Starting yesterday however, each time I open the Lounge, I must log in. I noticed this on a few other sites which I visit and from which I do not log out. But, this is only happening in Firefox. The only new software on the machine is the Firefox update itself. Has anyone else been experiencing this behaviour?

    I just tested it repeatedly in FF 3.05, but I stay logged in. Perhaps your Lounge cookie has crumbled, so try deleting the wopr.com cookie(s) [for others: Tools | Options..., Privacy tab, Show Cookies...]. You'll have to log in next time of course, but hopefully you'll remain logged in after that.

    I also tested it a few times without a problem. I also never log out.

    For what it's worth, I use a bookmark like this to come to The Lounge, but I really don't think it's necessary as has been pointed out to me in the past:

    Indeed: I never log out at home, and my Lounge shortcuts don't specify the username and password. I've had a problem only once or twice, and deleting the Lounge cookie solved that.

    A possible cause is the file that stores cookies may be corrupt. To test this close Firefox, go to your profile folder and rename cookies.sqlite to cookies.tmp
    Restart Firefox and see if it remembers the logins.

    Hans,
    I deleted the wopr cookie, logged in, exited, opened the Lounge again, but it still required me to log in.

    Al, I've filed your bookmark "trick" for future reference.

    Tony, your solution worked <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> . I renamed the cookies.sqlite file, logged in, exited, and then opened the Lounge again and I was still logged in. This also solved the same problem with the other sites. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>
