Do you have critical password saved in your Firefox? Because you may have to clear your cache to make it where you can get to this again easily. Have you only used a saved link or can you try typing in the forum web address and then seeing how it works?

Do you have work passwords saved in computer but not written down? If you clear cache it should clear up your issues, but you better know your passwords.

I can't log in from Firefox, which is my default and preferred browser. I can, however, log in from Chrome or Safari (currently logged in via Safari), which is how I've posted this comment. I haven't tried Edge.

BTW, there's an issue in Safari, at least, where if I try to highlight something I've typed then my cursor vanishes and nothing appears highlighted.

Something happened with the forum notifications. I get mine every day by e-mail but the last 2 days the format has changed into a text only style. I use Firefox Win 10 and was able to log in OK though. Not sure why the format changed.

Same here Joe, except I'm using chrome on android. I've tried cleaning everything it will let me clean. It does store my login username and info tho.

I've reported the staying logged in problems so I know developer can usually tweak something when this happens.

Ok, waited a couple of days like I was advised to do and I was able to log in using Firefox on my laptop. Yippy! I used the existing bookmark to do it with also and the username and password was saved. Just clicked "Log In" and in I went.

Now all I have to do is get used to the new layout.

Was able to log in from Firefox (using macOS Catalina). Stays logged in, too. Thanks for your hard work whoever you are!
