    PC Security.

    Hi Loungers,
    I visit this Forum & 2 others a few times daily.
    I normally don't have to log-in.
    I did my last visit 7 hours ago, when finished, my Laptop was shutdown.
    On my visit 7 hours later, I had to log-in to all 3 Forums.
    -
    To my knowledge, NO updates were made, and I never did any maintainence.
    -
    My browser is FF, it is not programmed to clear anything when closed & have'nt used CCleaner.
    I believe my security is very good as in my PC Specs. so what has caused this to happen.

    Has you cache gotten cleared?
    How much cache do you have for FF?
    How does FF handle cookies when cache fills up?

    I would worry only if that happened regularly. Automatic logins are cookie based and something happened to the cookies. It's not an uncommon event and usually it doesn't have to do with security software. Most likely something browser related, that led to cookies being deleted or expired.

    Hi Rui,
    it happened previously but only on Eileen's Lounge. As you say it's nothing to worry about.
