Automatic login not working for me

Every time I visit the COL bulletin board, I have to log in manually, despite having ticked the 'Log me in automatically each time I visit' box each time I visit. I am not sure if anyone else sees the same problem, or if it is something specific with my set up (Firefox 24.0, XP SP3). It is not a big problem, but I would be interested in any feedback. I wouldn't mind a spell checker too, unless it is there and I can't see it.

... I've not used that setting before today Bernard, so I decided to try it following your experience. I normally sign in as/when I require, otherwise leave myself signed-out.

This morning, I checked the appropriate check-box and when I switched my PC off (to go shopping) - without 'signing-out', then brought it back on again: as this forum is 'remembered' by Google Chrome, the page came up as I left it - including my active log-in.

I use Google Chrome (as noted) as my browser for this purpose (I use others), am on Windows 7 HomePremium.

... forget all that nonsense! Didn't work for me either: have had to actively log-in to send this.

Yes, auto login has never worked for me.
Gave up long ago and just login manually if I want to post.

What is a bit more annoying is that in recent months the server seems slow to respond at times and I get
'Cannot display this page
Check connection ...'

Well there is nothing wrong with my connection with other websites.

I'm with Windows 8.1
and mostly use internet explorer.

Works for me in IE, and in Chrome, I've not logged in for months

If you regularly clean Cookies, remember not to erase uktrail.com. I had to include this in my cookies to keep list in CCleaner.

Also, have you told Windows to remember the password?
