Having to log-in again every time I try to look at a thread, add a like, make a reply ets

For the past couple of weeks I find that I’m having to continually log-in whenever I try to do anything in the Eve forum - e.g whenever I open a thread in a new window, try to add a Like, try to make a Reply etc. If I Open New Topics in a new tab it tells me the page doesn’t exist or is private, but I can open it in the current tab OK. I’m using Firefox 66.0.3. I don’t see this behaviour on any other forum, and I haven’t changed any settings recently.

Can anyone suggest some way I could fix this ?

i dont use firefox … i use Chrome and Edge … i dont have any problems in that browsers


I didn’t have any problems with Firefox until a couple of weeks ago.

Probable your browser don’t store cookies on exit.

It alwys did before, and I’ve checked the settings.

last firefox version?


Could be I suppose, not sure when it was last updated - the ‘History’ tab only shows a Kernel update, not the list of all updates I expected to see. I think I perhaps need to de-install and re-install Firefox. Not sure why it would only affect Eve forums though, everything else seems to be working OK.


Thanks, but I use the Mint distribution Firefox so, according to that page, I have to wait for Mint to update it.

wtf is Mint firefox?

what OS you run?


Linux. He need wait until his distribution will update firefox in repository.

Not at all, thank you for trying to help. I don’t like Chrome, but I do have it installed - I’ll try running the Eve forum on that instead.

yea could be a good thing to find out where the problem is


You might want to try Chromium. I believe Mint has it as a package. It’s basically the open source browser that Google base Chrome on - because they add their Google binaries into it.

I use Chromium on Debian Stretch (Buster is on my “to do” list) - Forums work perfectly well with it for me.

It shows up on the package manager, so I’ll give it a try - thanks.
