    Login Timeout

    Tonight I have several times been logged out of WSL lounge prematurely. In my experience login time-out setting for most websites has been <>20minutes but WSL seems to be logging me out after only about 5 minutes.

    I don't remember ever being logged out of the Lounge, even between browser updates. The WS site doesn't remember me, but I don't use it very often.

    cheers, Paul

    I haven't been logged out in months. Sound like something is deleting your cookies.

    That'll be MS deprecating your browser 'cos you've not 'upgraded' to W10 yet.

    Anything new added to IE11 recently? Maybe a new WU?

    At home I use Windows 7-32 with Firefox, and I never get logged out of WS. At work I use Windows 7-64 with IE 11, and I sometimes get logged out when I first log in, and on rare other occasions as well. It hasn't happened in the last month or so, however.

    Does your browser delete cookies when you close it?

    Have been logged in for about an hour tonight and spent about 40 minutes looking through one lengthy thread w/o being logged out, so it appears to have been a temporary problem last night.

    I now get the following error message whenever I log into WS Lounge:

    vBulletin Message
    Invalid Redirect URL (http://www.windowssecrets.com/forums/)

    I then log in again, and all is well after that.

    I can't even remember the last time I had to login.

    BTW and off topic

    I was just thinking about my old Atari.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
