Default What changed getting on this forum?

I have always gone to my history section to or typed in "HomeBrewTalk.com" to pull up this forum, entered, adding a new thread or replied. Nice and simple.
Now everytime I go on this forum I must sign in with my forum name "BrewBeemer" then enter my password "********". This is a PITA as i'm on many other forums and can't remember not alone locate scraps of paper with forum names and passwords on 'em besides the WAR DEPARTMENT aka wife throws away useless paper scraps. Is there something I can do to correct this? Many other forums I just go on line and reply not "sign in" everytime.
Tips or lost clues? Thanks. Carl.....=o&o>......

Clear all cookies. Go to www.homebrewtalk.com, check, "Remember me," and enter your info. That should do it.

I have experienced this off and on for the past couple of weeks. I agree that it is annoying.

Guys, just do like Yuri said, clear out your cookies and restart your browser, it'll start saving your login info again.

Yeah, I had the same exact issue when the software was updated; clearing cookies worked perfectly.

My login has never worked properly. Regardless of what I do (flushing the cache, cookies, etc.), I cannot log in automatically. This is the only site where I have the problem. All other sites that use the same software work fine.

Two strange things:

1. If I try to read something & the "you are not logged in page" comes up, THAT page will auto-fill.
2. If I click the Username box at exactly the right time during the load, it will log me in. If the entire page gets loaded, no auto-login.

My guess: this is the only site that auto-fills "User name" into the username box. All the rest of them leave the box blank. The "you are not logged in page" also leaves the box empty.

The problem has carried over from Firefox 1.5 to 2.0.0.14, so who knows?
