For the past 2-3 days, automatic logout is happening for my Stack Overflow account when using Firefox. It doesn't happen every time and looks to be random. I am using MyOpenID for authentication and have checked the option 'stay signed in' if it matters. Is this some sort of bug?

Happens to me too sporadically, also random intervals. – Georg Fritzsche Jul 23 '10 at 6:08
I've had that happen before, but it hasn't happened in a long time. – Lance Roberts Jul 23 '10 at 6:20
The Community user just bumped a related question; @Naveen could this be what's happening to you? – Pops Jul 23 '10 at 11:21

I suspect rogue add-ins in Firefox. No other reports of this, and we haven't experienced it on our fairly large (20+ people) team in daily use of all sites.

Try running in Firefox safe mode, or switch browsers for a few days.
