Default Bad side effect of Remember me

User old55 suggested that I check "Remember me" on login, so that I don't have to enter my login info several times per day. It certainly works great in that sense. However, it appears that doing so messes up "NEW POSTS" and tracking which posts that I've read. Often, when coming back to the Forum after several hours and checking "NEW POSTS", I notice that it often says there are no new posts, when in fact there are many posts that I haven't read yet. In other words, all posts are as though I've read them, when in fact there are many that I haven't read. This doesn't happen every time I access the site, but fairly often. I can't figure out what's common about the times it's wrong, but it seems to be pretty consistent after opening up my laptop.

I've had to give up on "Remember me", which is otherwise a very nice feature. It's not a big deal. I just thought I'd report it.

Access details:
* MacBook Pro laptop computer
* Accessing full site
* OS X 10.11.6
* Chrome browser
* No, I did not try to clear cookies & cache. If I did, I assume Router Forums would "forget me" which defeats the purpose of "Remember me".

My Firefox remember me is independent of the cookies. I choose not to use Chrome. It may have something to do with putting the machine in sleep by just closing the lid. I sometimes have problems when I do that, then let it resume. Always works best to just close it down. This site is the worst I visit for stalling while it runs through a lot of cookies everytime I load a new page. I think animated and video ads are a big part of the problem, and I have fast internet.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Right Tom, it does seem to be consistent with the lid-closing sleep. I'll try switching (back) to Firefox. There's other reasons I'm getting annoyed with Chrome, anyway.

I don't have that problem Rob. I don't know which view of the forum you are using but the Classic version works best for me. I have also had issues with things going very slowly here but I downloaded CC Cleaner on Stick's advice and every time it starts slowing down now I run it and it speeds up again. You'll have to log back in afterwards as it does clean up all the cookies.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

CCCleaner does give you the option of selecting cookies you want to keep.

Rob I am using firefox too and got rid of Chrome,yahoo, Google and am running 5 ad blockers and nary a whisper of an ad ,and everything is fast and crisp like a new computer. It got so bad I was ready to ditch this forum until Stick helped me clear out all the unwanted stuff with CCleaner and ad blockers.
When I sign on I have to click the blank ID box and a drop down window comes on and has my ID in it so click on that and the password is already filled in by the remember me setting and then I click log on. Also I run CCleaner after every session on the internet, and am surprised of the amount of stuff that gets tacked on to this computer, most of it is feedback to data hubs of my internet activity.

G'day Rob I refresh the page a lot during each session and that brings up the new unread threads. I'm also using an iPad Air but also have a laptop with W7 and use Firefox on that one.
