What the heck is going on with the constant partial log-in situation?
I.E. everytime I refresh the page or navigate to a new one I may or may not be logged in.
It gets quite obnoxious, especially on mobile, when you're looking for a thread you've viewed/read/posted-in/whatever and you're logged out...refresh refresh refresh...logged in. Find one thread. Logged out once you click. Back to another forum to find another thread...logged in, and then back out.
This has been going on on all 4 of my Android devices, my PC (chrome/firefox) etc for a few months now.
The 2 things that you'll need to check to remain logged in is to:
1) Ensure cookies are enabled. Depending on your browser, you could have a setting such as "Clear cookies when closing browser" and if that is the case you would be logged out all the time. If running Chrome, this setting would be effective across multiple devices.
2) Check the "Remember me" box when logging in. If you check this, XDA will set a cookie which will keep you logged in.
One other thing to remember. If you view a page one and your browser caches it, if you navigate back to it you could get the old page locally which will show you as logged out. When you hit "Refresh" this then hits the server again which will show you as logged in.
If you are browsing somewhere where there is a proxy (either on your local machine or on your network) this could also be caching pages which could show you as logged out when you are really logged in.
