Automatically logged out for no obvious or apparent reason. Answered


So today I was clicking around the knex section as usual, when I got a message saying "Support DIY and Instructables today and go pro" or something like that.  I'm already a pro member, so I reloaded my "you" page, and found out that I was mysteriously logged out of the system.  I did not hit the "logout" button at any given point.

I did update Firefox to the newest version, but there was about a 10 minute interval between me starting up the latest version of the browser and the logout incident, during which I loaded about 5 pages, and it hasn't logged me out after past updates, so I'm not ready to rule that in as a possible cause.  I did not clear my cookies or cache.  It seems fine now, but it's still kinda odd this happened.

I'm having a similar problem. When I leave the 'Ibles site after having logged in, there are times, when I return, I have to login again.
I haven't closed my browser (Firefox 3.6.6),  changed the settings or made any other changes whatsoever.
This seems arbitrary and doesn't happen every time. I've tried to duplicate it or discern a pattern without success.
It doesn't happen with other sites that I subscribe to, only here.
Not a major problem, but annoying nonetheless.

I have the exact same problem. In fact, I've tried to say this 8 times already. Every time it expires, every time. There's something wrong with me posting on Instructables. Even when it says it will bring me to /edit/post/ it usually doesn't. When it does, its finished loading with a blank screen.

I have had this happen, you just keep logging in until it goes away. I would log in, load a page, and it would log me out. It is fixed for me, though.
