Frequent log-outs

I am experiencing frequent log-outs. If I am logged in but inactive for a short period of time I am logged out and directed to log in if I try to post or access "MyFlyerTalk".
I haven't timed it, but just now it was about 55 minutes since last posted and I was prompted to log in again.

It has been like this for awhile but now I've heard from other they are also experiencing similar log-outs so I thought I'd raise the question here.
I am on Mac Os 10.8, Firefox 48

Be sure you are not using old bookmarks. We recently moved to https and if you are using old http bookmarks this will happen.

Just change the http to https in your bookmarks and it'll be fixed.

While I wasn't actually using bookmarks when it happened, I went over and changed all the bookmarks, logged out and then back in.

But it seems to be happening even though. I am logged in, reading a thread. The url shows https. Then I leave the browser for a while, and when I return I hit the link "MyFlyerTalk" (hoovering it displays it as https) to refresh and see new posts in subscribed threads. I then get redirected to log in page.

Hmm. Maybe try clearing your browser cache and FT cookies...

And it should go without saying but be sure to click REMEMBER ME when logging in...

Also be sure your browser is saving FT cookies. Login is cookie-based
