"Remember me" checkbox does nothing

Post by willbill808 » Sat Sep 20, 2014 12:11 am

I've been having a minor problem with this forum. No matter how many times I make sure the "Remember me" checkbox at login is checked, it always makes me log in again every time I close a window, and the box unchecks itself. Just a slight annoyance. Cookies are enabled, and I am not using a proxy. I'm on Firefox for Windows 7. No special network settings.
Check out my YouTube channel, it contains several rare smoke alarms such as the BRK 79DCRI, the First Alert SA76RS, and more...

Have Firefox remember your password, it should automatically log you in.

Looks like other phpBB websites have had an issue with this too. There could be a problem with the cookie settings - that's the solution that I'm seeming from a lot of these topics.
