It might be that these two are unrelated but when reading this I had noticed this happen to me from time to time and it's been happening a lot more frequently of late.
I wonder if the reason might be that some of us are being logged out as soon as we close our browsers ?
This is what's been happening to me in both firefox and chrome and after a day or two I was unable to log back in.
I kept entering my details but would get the, "invalid user name or password message.
I decided to change my password in the hope it might fix it and for about a day it seemed to work and I remained
logged in but now it's doing it again. It's completely mystifying but internet explorer does seem to be a little better.
I tried safari but had the same problem. Right now as I type I can't log in at all in firefox so I'm writing this in chrome.
I don't know if it's a problem at my end or the forum end but I suspect the latter as it doesn't happen on any other site or forum. Also, for the last day or so I have been sorted another BFD2 user who lives near me and setting up his computer for him with an upgrade to windows 7. He gave me his username and password and I find that he is also being logged out after closing the browser.
You'd think once you were logged in you would stay logged in but earlier I logged in with firefox and as a test I opened internet explorer and I was logged out ?
