I very often use my working PC remotely and do not turn it off / reboot for weeks - I simply disconnect LogMeIn session and that's it. Sometimes browser remains untouched overnight or even all over the weekend. So, today I remotely connected to my PC, opened minimized browser which was left yesterday having one SO question opened. I decided to favorite it, but after click on star I got the following message:

Star click

Being QA, these things do not surprise me at all - I immediately realized the session has expired overnight. Indeed, after page refresh I got log in link:

log in

And just for comparison - I had my acc page opened on the other tab and tried to open SE Inbox:

inbox error

No doubts that one is OK and "by design" - at least user has an explanation.

QA at your service.

P.S. Testing environment (for the record): Win7 Ultimate SP1 x64 / FF 19.0

There will be a proper error message for that case starting with the next build.

  • Great, will validate it tomorrow as soon as new code is deployed. Browser window will be left opened overnight.

  • But, @Peter, maybe the fix is in the JavaScript, for which the old version is already loaded in your browser then. I assume a page refresh will also destroy your current test case. (Kevin, if you read this and I am wrong, then of course feel free to simply delete this comment. Quicker than commenting. ;-))

  • Do you mean I should clear browser cache beforehand? Frankly I don't understand what's wrong about my - or my FF - JavaScript......
