View Full Version : Everything is always new???

September 29, 2001, 08:13 PM

I have switched browsers to IE instead of netscape.
I also am on a cable modem now with a firewall.
Lately I discover I cannot seem to get the forums software to save what has new threads or not. So when I reenter the forums everything always appears new.

Is this because my firewall is preventing cookies being written to my hard drive? If so is there a port number the firing line uses that I can allow through the firewall?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I believe the new topics are shown based on your login. That allows you to keep updated from both work and home. Do you log on and off when you come here?

I try to stay logged on. That is, I never logout.
Have been on cable modem for a couple of years; firewall for several months.
Lately (last 5-6 wks), I seem to have been logged out.
Have to re-register or log-on even just a few hours since my last visit. Happens intermittently; no rhyme or reason. What gives?:confused:
