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. Commented Jul 23, 2010 at 6:08

    I've had that happen before, but it hasn't happened in a long time. Commented Jul 23, 2010 at 6:20
  • The Community user just bumped a related question; @Naveen could this be what's happening to you?

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.
