Login Issue
      #258605 - 08/05/09 04:26 PM

If my login "expires", due to putting the computer in standby at night and then waking it up in the morning, I cannot login again without shutting down all instances of IE8. I can't just close the current tab or the current instance, have to shut them all down, including works in progress. If I click on the Login link, it just goes to the main index.

Same behavior in XP and Vista.

This behavior is fairly recent, dunno if it is due to changes to IE or AvSIG.

That also happens if I leave my home machine logged in, and then login again from work. When I logoff the work machine and come home, the home machine shows my screen name but acts as if I were logged off. Clicking "login" gets me nowhere, and I have to cycle the browser to get back in.

That happens to me too, I can't stay logged in on more than 1 computer. The thing you have to do is erase the Aero-Farm cookie from that machine and then you will be able to log in on it again.

It's been like that for a long time for me.

Any "shared" instance of the browser will not work. I have to open a new instance. I have discovered that all windows of IE8 share the same instance.

So now I open IE with a shortcut that has a " -nomerge" switch on it. Then I just open a new window and I can log in. It keeps my IE windows isolated from each other.

Thanks, Russel, for discovering a secret and letting us know about it. I will give that a try.
