I have never had this problem, nor do I have an Apple machine on which to attempt to simulate it, so I can't help you there. However, no matter what platform you are using, when the login box comes up, there is a checkbox available which says "Stay logged in forever". I checked it when we went to this software version in 2007 and I haven't logged in since. Obviously this isn't the sort of thing you would want to do with just any website, but for a classical music chat board, using your own device, IMO you are not giving up any security by checking the box. :)

But when you clear your history, aren't you then automatically logged out?

If you clear cookies.

Also it seems if the forum software gets upgraded we may have to log back in.

Thank you for your response JBS.  I must admit, I don't like having cookies stuck to me like a burr to my gardening gloves or clothing following me around everywhere...perhaps I'm being paranoid, but just trying to be safe on my computers.

Best wishes,

I have Chrome set to clear cookies and browsing data every time I close it. But I use an app called Lastpass that logs me in automatically when I start a new session. So forgive the confusion: the way I told you was the way I had it for nearly 15 years, but now I have it different. BTW, I highly recommend Lastpass, it means I only ever have to remember one password!

Tried it, but I did not understand how it worked and was lost in the maze of this program, so I removed it out of my extensions list.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Yes, it crashed for me a little while ago.

I wonder whether or not our Chief might have been doing some site maintenance?  :-\

All good here today.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

Very slow and even at times inaccessible for me much of the time to day, but no problems just now.

I was having problems between roughly 6 to 3 hours ago, but seems fine now.
