Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates


I have been having this problem for some time, but could not find a solution.

Whenever i restart my Browser (Firefox 3.5.6) and go to (or superuser or meta) i have to login with my OpenID again, which is very annoying.

Cookies are enabled.

I hope someone can help.

Regards Nick

Ok i just found the solution myself.

It appears there is a hidden function in the Firefox settings like "delete cookies on exit". (I dont know exactly because my Firefox speaks german ;) ) Anyway i deactivated it and now it works.... silly me.

yes so don't do that :) – Jeff Atwood Dec 21 '09 at 11:37

Can you reproduce in another web browser? Does it happen in Firefox safe mode?

Sounds like a cookie problem specific to Firefox on that machine..
