Can't really remember when it did this last time.

You need to be logged in so that the Parts Tracker knows who you are to check what permissions you have.

If you previously logged into the old (Phorum) forum and asked to be remembered permanently, the Parts Tracker would have used that cookie and you would probably never have been asked to login again. Now we are on the new (myBB) forum, the Parts Tracker only looks at the cookie from logging in to this. Even if your Phorum cookie is still valiid, it is no longer being checked. Orion is investigating why the myBB cookies are expiring on session end.
Ok. I just tested with fresh install of Firefox 45.0.1 on OSX 10.11.4. I logged in, posted a review, closed FireFox and reopened, and posted another review with no issues. Check your cookie settings and see if you have it set to expire cookies upon FireFox close. I'll test on my Windows machine when I get a chance.

On my existing install of Firefox 45.0.1 on Windows 7, I logged in, posted a review, and closed firefox. On restarting Firefox, I needed to login again to post another review.
I just tested it with Firefox 45.0.1 on Win 7, 64. I was logged in, uploaded a part, closed FireFox and reopened, and posted another review with no issues.
I figured out the problem and am working on a solution.
Chris, this will require a small modification to the authentication code for the PT. I'll try to send you code by tonight my time (you're 10 hrs ahead of me)
Problem solved and Chris has the info he needs to fix the PT.  He'll let you know when everything is patched up.

Change implemented and seems to be working. If you are logged in to the forum, the Parts Tracker now understands this across browser sessions.
Very nice, it works.

Hello Chris.

Unfortunately its not working for me. Tried it in both Firefox and Chrome.

It might be because its set for HTTPS only and so it won't carry over to http://www.ldraw.org
