i see. problem is, i don't think i use a bookmark for xda. i go to the xda forum via the thumbnail page. for example which is basically a list of most viewed pages or something.

so, i'm not sure how to edit that, b/c i dont think it is technically a bookmark

This just started happeneing to me. It began after setting my theme preference to 2010 in the User CP. Previously i would just rely on the site cookies, which i exclude from cleaning, to remember the theme preference. I've got some testing to do to see if i can reverse the changes and fix the issue.

I have been having log in problems for the last few weeks.
Tried changing password process (and plagued the "contact us" button as even the newly delivered password failed to work! and not that I got any response from them either...!). I was going off my head!

But then I tried loging in using IE (Firefox is my usual browser) and got straigt in! SO I thought it must be one of the add-on in firefox. Naa.. never that simple!

Then I came across this topic and I tried the two new 2013 themes. No difference. IE logged in using the XDA 2010 theme so tried that and the 2010 themes and they both worked in both firefox and waterfox.

My conclussion is that there is an additional character being presented in the password field because of an error in those themes (both the 2013 themes).

Just so people know, if you click the "remember me" box when logging in, this will pop a cookie on the browser and will allow your session to carry over (so long as you do not click log off) from browser restarts etc. and should keep you logged in..

Hope this helps someone...

Is there a way to disable the charging LED without buying the updater app?

Login issues...
Okay guys,

Since today morning, I am constantly presented with the attached screen every time I want to check XDA. This is the captcha nonsense that is refusing to go. Any solutions?

When ever I have to login I have to change the XDA theme to 2015 at the bottom left corner of the page. But I like the 2010 theme from which I cannot login. Can't this be rectified by moderators?? Why do I have to change the theme everytime I login?? My user ID is ' iamsuperuser ' . Can someone help?

The option your changing is saved as a cookie in that specific browser but, the way to keep it as a specific user setting is as follows.

Be sure your logged in first and go to the following link...

... Then scroll down to the last area under "Forum Skin" and select the default forum skin theme you want from the drop down menu. Then Select the "Save Changes" button at the very bottom.

You should be good to go from there...

Good Luck!

UNLESS asked to do so, PLEASE don't PM me regarding support. Sent using The ClaRetoX Forum App on my Enigma Machine {aenigma = Latin for "Riddle" AND Nickname for "My Ex-Wife"}.

Can not log in only on one device Samsung T330 tablet using Stock v5.1.1 Android.
I have reset password, after receiving Email on new password
Tried it same message "Incorrect user and password"
On all my other devices I can login OK.
Tried several times on faulty login tablet, with new password and changed to my password. Still same and others OK.
Posted problem on other XDA Groups. No fix.
Need to contact XDA ADMIN,
By the way, using same tab and logging on via Chrome, or other Login OK. Just an issue with XDA APP downloaded and installed several times on T330. NO GO.
