Hi Everyone,

I am also having an issue with staying signed into things I am having to sign into facebook 4 and 5 times its like it doesn't remember that I signed in 5 times already. I am starting to see it happen on alot of sites that I am on so I have to reach up and go to autofill then pull down the site and sign in for the 5th time. What is causing this?

Do you have any IE plugins/addons that are used in Avant?
Tools >> Avant Browser Options >> Add-ons >> IE Plug-ins

Is your profile correct? ie WinXP, IE8, Avant build 37
Has it started happening recently or from an update?
Does IE8 have the same problem on your system? Please check.
Is it just Facebook that has the problem?
Please provide steps of actions that you are performing so that I can duplicate the issue.

I just tried it in IE 8 and I got signed off of facebook..... I logged in though IE 8 and then went away for an hour came back and I was signed off back on the log on screen

So maybe its not avant thats weird because Firefox keeps me signed in constantly.

I even tried Orca and it still signed me out of facebook and I had to resign back in.

Most sites do have an idle time so that if you do not load a page in say 5 minutes from the same browser on the same computer then your session will expire and you have to log back in. Some sites allow you to specify the timeout period in their settings. Maybe you are just using the Firefox session more often. Anyway, you could use the auto-refresh feature built into Avant/Orca.

I will try that not going on Facebook for an hour and see if Facebook signed me out.... true I could use the Auto refresh to keep it going.

I am trying to figure out whats the difference between ORCA and AVANT. Besides Avant uses IE I noticed Orca loads things a bit faster than Avant I am kinda torn :S

So what would you set FACEBOOK on auto refresh?

Maybe refresh every 5 or 10 min

I dunno, I don't do all that social networking rubbish - sorry. Tried a web search for info?
I suggest leaving a tab on Facebook's homepage to every 5min and see how it works out.

Ok I will try that and walk away. Thanks

So question, do you use Avant too or Orca?

My default browser for over a year now has been Orca, simply because it is self contained (ie it does not depend on the version of IE on the computer) and the (limited) Mozilla plugin's support. I can run it in portable mode on a removable drive and not have to reconfigure settings on each PC that I may use.
