I've been using chrome since long before the "upgrade". I had the logout problem once early after the changeover, but nothing since. All good on my PC and chrome app on iphone.

Not getting the boot using Chrome or anything else. However, I was unable to log on for quite a while yesterday.
Cheers,

That's interesting, Steve - as it was yesterday I got logged out. Perhaps there has been something going on 'in the background' to try & remedy the situation?

It is really weird that so many browsers were affected (both Windows AND Macs) with the upgrade!

Fingers crossed it settles down now!

cheers

I know of a browser (Puffin) that does its work in a different way (in the cloud instead of on the computer, which makes it incredibly fast on low-spec machines compared to the all other popular browsers I tried - a lot!). This post is testing it now.
Unfortunately Puffin don't yet have a MacOS version (but do have iOS). The other part of the use-it-at-your-own_risk recommendation is I do not yet trust them and do limited things with it (they probably track you and keep it on their servers despite you clear history) . Tat said, if anyone wants to test:
https://www.puffin.com/

Why do that? All the Puffin processing takes part 'in the cloud' instead of on your computer. That should virtually eliminate the user's computer or OS as a contributor to the problem.

EDIT: No logout using Puffin
Cheers,
Steve

I have sorted phone and iPad to the extent there is absolutely no problem. My desktop, running on windows as opposed to IOS, is still a complete waste of time. I am on the secure site and have deleted cookies via the option on the forum, but am reluctant to do it through the explorer tools. My desktop is for work and I do a lot of cloud based stuff. Is anyone out there tech savvy enough to advise whether I might run into problems. My own thoughts are that the cookies I need will reload when I visit the pages I need, but will it affect passwords and stored access to that sort of stuff ??
