    For the past few days, I now have to log in each time. The system will not keep me logged in even though I have checked the box to keep me logged in.

    I've been OK so far. iMac using Safari. Had to log on this morning, but that was after the update/offline stuff.

    What browser are you using ? That's most likely the cause in your settings.. if you google for example "google chrome website won't stay logged in" you should find answer .. I don't have that report coming in from other users .. it would be everyone not just you.. let me know.. I'm here to help.

    I use Firefox on a Win 10 laptop and it worked fine before the upgrade. It does stay logged in on Chrome on an iPad though. I am not going to change browsers. I will just log in less frequently if it can't be fixed.

    I also use Firefox on Win 10 and it worked fine before the upgrade. Now I can't log in on Firefox but I can on Chrome.
    When attempting to log in on Firefox, it says "This connection is not secure."
    Is Firefox stopping it? I'm not going to change browsers, either.

    As of the middle of last week I could not log in and had emailed Bill. He changed my password and still no love. What I ended up having to do was to check the "stay logged in" box as Bill has stated above. The forum is now back and 100% operational for me.

    As a matter of routine computer maintenance I do clean history, cache, etc. once per week. I am running a Dell laptop with Chrome as my browser.

    I was having all the problems described above. I cleared the cookies, (not history), and everything straightened out. NO Problems since.
    I'm using Opera in Linux Mint
