Well, yeah, I could move it to the top. But I have bigger, more sinister plans ...
As some of you know, I like to play a bit with the java programming language. So I made a web site about ten years ago to broadcast my thoughts. And people kept sending me emails so I set up a forum. And lots of people came. About a month ago, some of those people made new forum software in java and it is running now. Take a look at http://www.coderanch.com/forums
As soon as that software gets rock solid, I hope to copy it to here.
So! In a feeble attempt to completely dodge your question ... have you tried that thing where it just keeps you always logged in? I haven't seen that login thing you are talking about for months!
No, two whole steps that I have to do every single time I come to this board. As I mentioned above, Mozilla Firefox apparently won't allow me to remain logged in once I leave this site (or any other site).
You must be special. The minute I got the new Firefox, this problem started. I wish I could go back to the old Firefox. The new one isn't that great. I wish these computer hacker/programmer types wouldn't try to make one thing to suit all people. It can't be done, and it just screws up everything else. Esp for us electronically challenged people.
Perhaps something changed your options under Firefox? Check under the Tools->Options dialog, under "Privacy" (at the top. Do you have "Accept cookies" checked? You'll need that checked for the forever login.
