Login retention on Firefox - Travis Cobbs - 2012-01-04

The forum won't keep me logged in from one session to another on Firefox. It keeps me logged in on both IE and Chrome, but not Firefox. Is anyone else having the same problem? I'm guessing it's something with the configuration of one of my Firefox add-ons (like Adblock Plus or NoScript), but before I spend significant time and effort tracking down the problem, I'd like to verify that other people using Firefox are able to stay logged into the forum from one session to the next. (I already deleted all cookies that matched ldraw as a search string.)

I found the problem.

It turns out that if you remove an individual cookie from Firefox, Firefox decides that you must hate the site that gave you that cookie, and automatically, without telling you, blacklists that site from receiving any future cookies. And the only way to even find the UI that contains the list of blacklisted sites is to change the option on the Privacy settings page to "Use custom settings for history" (which then shows an Exceptions button).

This is why I prefer seamonkey, Firefox seems to get more and more 'automatic'.
