Repeatedly logging into the Mozilla Add-ons page

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by FleaBittenDog, Feb 2, 2008.

  1. I frequently visit the Mozilla Add-ons pages. If you wish to comment
    on an extension, or ask a question, you must create an account and log in.
    I have already done this a long time ago. Yet every single time I leave the
    Add-ons page, and then return, I have to log back in again. For some reason
    my email address and password are not being stored. Very annoying. There
    are no programs running on my PC that are deleting Firefox cookies. Any
    ideas about this?

    Impossible to tell since you didn't provide the URL of the problem page.

    As near as I can tell, the site uses session cookies to remember your
    login status. I logged in, went to several other pages and then bac: I
    was still logged. I didn't try it over a long period, however. So,
    like many sites, if you are absent for some period of time, the cookies
    will expire.

    Hence, you must click the login link. The password manager can easily
    remember your login info.
