I just happened to me again. when I opened the page it said there were 45 new messages, but then Roboform pops up saying I have to sign in--I do and then there are no new messasages. What's going on?

This occurs when a session or login expires.

If the session or login expires before you read the messages, it will class the messages as read anyway (don't know why, but have noticed this myself).

How long is it usually between the time you login and then you have to login again?

Also, do you have the forum setup to keep you logged in?

Yes, I have it set to keep me loggeed in, which works sometimes. I have my cleaner set to save the cookie. I sometimes wonder if Roboform is a bit quick and I should wait longer to see if I am really signed in and it doesn't know it. I didn't have this problem before V11, btw.

I guess I don't understand where you're getting prompted by RoboForm. Are you accessing PMs a lot? Or, are you logged in and then return to the forum index where you're suddenly not logged in, causing RoboForm to pick that up.

There's so many different ways RoboForm can be setup, it makes it hard to visualize how someone else might be doing it.

Either way, do you think you try not having the forum remember you're logged in and see if that changes anything?

And also, is it in the middle of browsing the forum or is it only when you first show up?

(By the way, it's nice to see new posts in this forum that aren't spam. :roll:)

This happens when I first come into the Forum only. The way Roboform behaves now with groups is that it pops up for all of the sites that need signed in to right away and not just when you go to that particular tab. I responds to the Forum and the skin site as bring the same thing--which the sort of are, but I have different passwords for each one.

OK, I'm too confused at this point to go on with thisImage I'll try to pay more attention the next time.

Ah... now I get it. Have you tried deleting your forum cookie. It sounds like a corrupt cookie to me. I don't think overwriting the cookie, which is what logging in would do, would help.

Ok, we'll see how it goes--it seems to have solved my other problem too.
