Cookies and redirect problems

Not sure if this would be a bug or what not, but when I sign on from a different computer such as my laptop, CH will remember to force log off my desktop computer when I come back to that. Firefox (version 9) was unable to do this and pulled up a redirect error (I think that occurs trying to execute the force log off script) that stated:

"Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

This problem is corrected by logging off from the last computer I used (my laptop for example) then manually clearing out the cookies using Firefox's options. May cause some confusion for users unaware of how cookies interact and whatnot.

I wonder if my issue was something similar or just unrelated then.

I was connected and logged in fine yesterday, but today when I refreshed the tab I was forced logged out and had to log back into CH, it also displayed the CAPTCHA line for logging back into the account.

I was not logged onto CH from any other machine that I am aware of so I do not know if this was just a plain cookie/session issue with FF9 or what.

Yes, the site has login protection that will log you out if you login from a different PC or browser. It has been this way for a long time. We recently added a captcha to the login process as too many people were trying to hack the user/password boxes to gain access to UNL accounts.

Nevermore will look into the FF specific problem.

I just had another FF logout issue, completely erased my session cookie upon refreshing the TRAINER page.

Seems to happen about once a month or so.

EDIT: pretty sure this is a cookie expiration thing, it is exactly 30 days from my previous cookie erasure and I refreshed the CH page and I was logged out again.

This is ok with me as I do not mind entering in the password but those security codes are hard to read sometime, mostly due to my poor eyesight.
