Both IE8 and FireFox 3.5 will not keep me logged into websites like yahoo, linkedin, and even bleepingcomputer. They react as if i didnt even login, although i've entered correct username/password. My password and username are saved, but I have to click login every time. I checked the "remember me" options, and I set firefox to accept cookies and saved passwords. It seems that there is a memory leak with both IE and FF that typically opens at ~40,000k but if left opened within a day often climbs to 200,000k and even 500,000k.

I have already deleted "cookies.sqlite" as recommended in from a previous post recommending http://cranialsoup.blogspot.com/2009/03/fi...o-keep-you.html

Also, I have deleted the cache.

Java has recently been updated v6.15.

This is very annoying... thoughts?

Could be some overly sensitive security software blocking? What you use? Some proxy blocking thingy with wrong settings perhaps? Ad muncher type of program?

I use ZoneAlarm security suite and I don't use anything else to my knowledge. I have ad blocking turned off and a 'medium' setting for cookies (allows cookies from personalized services).

Dont know Zonealarm but it is mentioned a few time in Firefox knowledgebase, like here "Websites report cookies are disabled" Since problem concern both browser may be worth experimenting with.

When you go here http://browserspy.dk/cookie.php it should say yes all the way down.

Let me rephrase then. Turn off any cookie control in Zonealarm. And thank you for your effort up to now.

Dont add "to my knowledge" if you want to avoid answers trying to exclude the obvious. But lets see...

Ok, well my rephrase still goes. Then you know it is a problem or not. Exclude away. I did a search on Zonealarm forums and this is the way to solve this. Too rigid, aggressive sometimes. But ultra quick search. If no control at all fixes everything try look for tricks like exception list of urls or somehting. http://forums.zonealarm.com/ Feature not working so must be talked about as unacceptable.

If Zonealarm is to blaim why did it change behavoir? Have no idea, may be Zonealarm update? may be another will fix it?

This must be about exception list for troublesome sites. http://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/s-2846...amp;action=view

If there is a bug in "allows cookies from personalized services" may be you need to do this.

Thanks Bambo.

It seems like it may have something to do with the cookies. I'm going through and have turned off the cookie blocking on the browsers and ZA. So far it seems to help. I am going to continue to diagnose this for a bit and will report.
