I'm using Windows 7 and IE.

When I log in to the FT Forums and click "remain logged in", my account appears to log in correctly. As soon as I open a discussion thread I find that I am logged out already and cannot post.

If, however, I do not click on the "remain logged in" button, then I have no problem.

What might be causing this glitch?

Hi Toni,

I get that occasionally, too. If you expire your cookies (what a strange term! smile ), it should fix it.

Go 'My Stuff/Cookies/Delete cookies'. You can then just log back in and it should stick.

It's an IE problem. I've been doing that [don't click remain] for the last five or six years.

When it gets annoying I use Chrome or Firefox for a few weeks, lol
