Why does it says “welcome back -user- click here to 'refresh page'”
Stack Exchange's autologin seems to have inconsistent behavior as to
- whether it activates at all, and
- whether the page auto-refreshes after activating.
[1 has been answered in detail], but what about 2?
After auto-login, the banner saying you have been logged in automatically appears. But then:
- Sometimes the banner continues, "You are being redirected"; the page refreshes; and I am logged in automatically.
- Sometimes the banner continues, "Click here to refresh"; then I have to refresh the page (or click there) before I am logged in.
Is this a bug, or is there a reason behind the seemingly inconsistent behavior here?
