Thread: Need to login every time

  1. #1

    Exclamation Need to login every time

    I am using Firefox 4 and I need to login every time I visit the forums. I don't think that this will be a difficult bug to tackle with.

    It's not a bug
    It's normal in this forum.

    I haven't tried staying logged in, but there is a setting in Firefox to quit active Logins at shutdown under Preferences > Privacy > History > Clear history when Firefox closes which is visible if you use custom settings for history.

    Regardless of that setting as caf4926 states it is normal for this forum. So I take that to mean you will be logged out.

    Your login here also is used to access Novell Customer Center, which
    contains sensitive customer information and product licenses for Novell
    and SUSE products.

    This (logging you out after X time) used to break the links on emailed notifications on threads you were following. We will see how it works under the new system. You would have to visit the forums, hit the log in, go through that. Then follow the link from the email which totally breaks what following the links are supposed to do; make it convenient to follow threads. It's also supposed to not email you again unless you follow the URL in the email. I am sure that is broken currently though I could be wrong.

    I am hoping the new log-in stops the behavior of logging you out after X time. Making it ' convenient and safe ' for business users makes it inconvenient for normal desktop users located at home.

    There still is a timeout, but I believe it's set to 3 hours now - and the
    configuration should be such that it doesn't cause the kinds of issues it
    caused in the past.

    But this is opensuse. I don't have any commercial relationship with
    Novell, and don't have any product licences. Nor should they hold any
    sensitive customer information related to me. I suspect many others are
    in the same position. So I believe this is a seriously incorrect system
    design, leading to a poor user experience for opensuse users.
