Website-BUG: Login-Cookie-Handling over multiple PCs with feed Answered

I had this problem in the past sporadically but never saw a pattern till recently:

I come to instructables.com, i am already logged in and click on "feed" at the top. After a while an error pops up telling me a Rerouting-error happened. (Umleitungsfehler in German). I noticed, this always happens after the following action-pattern:
- I visit instructables.com and log in on computer A and i DONT log out there but only close the browse.
- I visit instructables.com on computer B. I am seemingly already signed in from the last visit here on Computer B at instructables.com.
- If i now click feed (On Computer B), the error happens.
- If i logout and log back in on Computer B, the error is gone on this computer B, even over Firefox-restarts

As far as i undestand, as soon as i log in on computer A, a new login-cookie is created on Computer A and the cookie on Computer B will no longer be valid next time.
Now, if i come to instructables with computer B, the cookie somehow still is interpreted valid and logs me in (I appear to be logged in with my avatar visible at the top right).
However, if i want to go to my feed, it seems Instructables checks again the cookie and figures out that i have a no longer valid login-cookie on this Computer B due to my login on Computer A and refuses to redirect me to my feed.

This gets sorted with Re-Log on Computer B, creating a NEW login-cookie on Computer B and all is well again on Computer B. Now i can play the same game on Computer A with re-log. :)

I hope, this error-report helps you guys in pinpointing and fixing an issue with a Login-bug as it seems

And Why to hell do i have to define in which channel this belongs and you dont have a channel "website of Instructables"?!? I hope this is not lost in "Circuits" - "Software" which was the closest i could find to a website-problem... Geez...

Question about Comping and Tuning Vocals

Hey engineers! I'm working on an AC40 / Pop-ish project, and it's really challenging my vocal editing and mixing skills. I've learned a lot in a short time, but I'm slowly getting happier with the results.
That being said, I'm struggling with finding a balance between editing the BGVs to the point of being either really tight or sucking the life out of them. I usually track 6-8 passes on the lead vox, Comp, time, and Tune, and it gets great results. So I've been doing the same with the BGVs and Doubles, which is incredibly time consuming, and then I'm underwhelmed by the effect. I listen to the rough demos before the vocal editing and I almost prefer the sound before I spend 4 hours editing and tuning all the BGVs.
I know some of that out-of-tune rub between the lead and BGV is what gives it some of that big wide sound, but sometimes it also sounds sloppy and loses that pop sheen. It seems like editing the timing to where you only hear one vocal but get the effect of all of them is the goal, without tuning them too hard.
