I have to log on each time I open OG but that's because I have enhanced cookie management. Same applies to Google, BBC and other sites.

Well that's fair enough. The Apple problem is documented and seems to be an example of unintended consequences. One thing is for certain it's nothing to do with the site.

But surely the mighty Apple empire could never do anything wrong? :extrawink:

I never tell web sites and forums to keep me logged in. It only takes seconds to log in and logout. :smile:

I am of the same mind now and if you use the Firefox password facility it's so easy. Doesn't make you totally secure but one small step....

I never said I thought they couldn't. There is a limit to my paranoia!

I've noticed a strange thing with the site. If you open up a thread containing a picture, like those pics put up by BobH in Shed Matters, and then click on the picture to increase its size, the picture is loaded line by line (slowly) presumably from the Cloud. The next time I click on the picture it loads like lightning. Does that mean it is putting an image on my computer somewhere or just a cookie? I can't find any trace of any retained images but I'll be able to reopen it quickly even after a few days, not just later this session.

Bob adds his pictures as attachments. The default action for image attachments is to display as a thumbnail and enlarge when selected. The download function is not enabled on image types. They enlarge instantly on my laptop and I would assume will be held in the Widows cache or as a temporary file. This would explain why they would open faster the second time round if you are using a slower machine.
