    I use IE, FF and Opera and I never have to login. My cookie seems to remain indefinitely or until I actually select logout (which is almost never).

    I primarily used Firefox for about three years on my last computer. I almost never got logged out of ABW. When I got my new one about three months ago, I was using Safari until last week, and i was continually getting logged out; I had to login several times a day. I finally switched back to FF last week, and again, I never am logged out.

    Try FF and see what happens.

    I also upgraded to IE8, that has been stalling my PC too

    Not sure if it might affect the cookie.

    It just started logging me out and I haven't changed anything on my end. My login info is there, but I have to click on it to be logged in. Before all I had to do was click on my bookmark and I was logged in. I use FF.

    The few times I've logged in from other PCs I've had to reset my password, because I never have to use it at all. I've been logged in for ages from my main PC - firefox.

    For all these years, I don't even know there is a "REMEMBER ME" option exist.

    Where is it anyway?

    Mayfly it worked like that for me too until a few very recently. I have the "Remember Me" thingy checked and it remembers the info., but I still have to login. Not a huge deal, but sometimes I don't remember I'm not logged in and I miss some of the forum updates like the Inner Circle.

    Ah, found it. Now I'm "remembered" by the machine, supposedly.

    Those who are having problems with it, what browser are you using?

    It's always worked fine for me.

    Ok, I have to login again. The "remember me" option seems not working for me.

    I use IE8.

    Try the following link to completely clear the cookies and see if that helps (once you've logged back in):
