gatherings remembering my password

sewfar | Posted in General Discussion on

My son upgraded my computer and put in Firefox. Great but I can no longer go directly to Gatherings like I have done for years even though I select the option to remember my password. Any suggestions ? He is away on business so I do not want to bother him now to explain what is probably obvious. Thanks

    In order for the forum to remember your password, your computer must be set to accept "cookies," those cyberbits that identify different computers and which can be a type of security risk unless you periodically go through and delete all the ones you've accumulated.  He may have set the security higher than before in order to protect you from hackers or unsecure sites.

      Thank you. I will email him. I bet that is it as I am also having trouble accessing my personal Earthlink Start page.

    I have Firefox and go directly to this site whenever I click it in my bookmarks. You will need to sign in and then when you get to the forum page, bookmark that. You should have no problem after that. Ask any geek or professional nerd, they all have Firefox and love it. I haven't had a virus issue or pop up since. Hate those popups. Oh, I do have my "cookies" set at medium. I have had it set high however and still no problem getting on signed in.

      Please do not refer to these individuals geeks or nerds.  They are educated, accomplished and can do the almost impossible with computers.

      Thank-you.

        I meant know disrespect to this brilliant group of people. My nephew, who does all of our computer business and has his own successful IT company in a large East coast city, calls himself that so I do also. He doesn't say it disparagingly, he just says thats what he is just like I am a brunette. He is a wonderful, sociable, highly intelligent young man. I am sorry if I have offended anyone. It was never my intention and I apologize. solo
