Firefox keeps logging out of linuxquestions.org


Here's a strange one. I'm using firefox 3.5.8 on Gentoo and it won't stay logged into linuxquestions.org. Every time I visit this hallowed site I have to log in again (even with the 'remember me' ticked). Plus if I take more than about 5 minutes writing a reply, by the time I come to submit i have to resubmit my login details. It's very annoying, and I can't figure it out. Things work fine if I use konqueror, so I guess it's not a problem with the website itself (plus it probably rules out a problem with my squid proxy).

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

edit: I forgot to add, I don't have any problems on any other forums. Maybe I've accidentally selected something for this particular site in some obscure setting. Who knows.

There's a thread in the feedback forum about this. Delete all your LQ cookies and log-in again.

Thanks David. I can't believe I didn't try clearing cookies (or even searching LQ ). Schoolboy error.
