The Antibug report - login/posting issues with I.E. Answered

not sure if "you" fixed/changed something, or if i did (i doubt it was me as i've not changed anything on my system anytime recently). but the posting/logging in issue that i've been bitc.....er complaining about for a while now seems to have decided to leave me alone (mostly)

i can now visit the site in I.E. 8, log in to view all steps on an ible AND i can comment on ibles and forum posts from I.E. (used to have to use firefox for any of the commenting)

still can't stay logged in between visits (can't close I.E. and then come back and still be logged in) but that's not as big of an issue

Great news! Thank you for posting this :-)

About your "logged in between visits" issue, that is almost certainly related to cookies. I don't know the right IE terminology. In my Firefox browser, if I specify to accept "session cookies," those are automatically deleted when I quit and I have to login in again next time. If I specify just "allow cookies," they are saved even after I quit and I'bles will recognize me on the next go around.

You might check on which "kind" of cookie you've configured for Instructables in IE.

yeah, i'm working on the cookies (attempting to do so without clearing out my history and temp files as that bugs the crap out of me)....

That's something I can't help you with on IE. On Firefox, it looks like there's a ~/Library/Appplication\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/*.default/cookies.sqlite file which I could just delete to get rid of them, without touching anything else. Also, I believe that "Tools -> Clear Recent History" has an option of just clearing cookies and nothing else.

Good luck!
