Is that on a phone Neil?

Not having any problems on my laptop. Logged in this morning and it has stayed logged in even while I have been out, other than when I rebooted Firefox.

No issues here Neil.

I suggest you try logging in on a different device PC or mobile and see if the behaviour repeats - if not I think you have your answer and need to clear the cache of the browser on either device.

Looks like it’s ok on this set up away from home on borrowed I pad and borrowed wi fi :-D :) :)

So looks like I need to clear up the browser on my own home set up

Apologies for the false alarm, and thanks for your help :-D

That is ok Neil,. You are not the first to hit this problem. I believe that the forum software should detect and automatically reset the browser cookie when this happens, but an obscure bug deep in the software causes it to get stuck in a loop of logging out. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to reproduce this problem on demand.

Thanks Mike. Tried a different browser "Brave" as mentioned by Marc and normal function restored. The Edge Browser still plays up as before in spite of a clear out, so I've ditched it for now.

Faffed about with a few settings on Edge and its back to normal, but its getting dumped for now. :-D
