Is anyone else having problems viewing the website and using logged in features using Microsoft Edge?

I log in, check keep me logged in, for that one click it keeps me logged in. I click on anything else; new post, Inbox, Alerts, and it says I need to log in again. I haven't changed anything in the browser like cookies, etc. I even find it does this in Internet Explorer. I haven't tried in Firefox yet, but wanted to get other peoples takes on it.

I get that error about once every two weeks or so – and I suspect it might be a cookie problem.


At home, I use Firefox on my Windows 10 machine – and not Edge.
No problems what so ever (other than I don't use my home machine, much)
.

At work, I use Firefox and IE 11, on Windows 7.
I prefer Firefox but after a couple of days, it starts to act funny, then blows up on me (which I suspect might be the advertisements this web site uses – but not sure). After a couple days of usage, IE 11 blows up on me as well – so no good answers there.

The only way to fix Firefox or IE 11 at work, is to reboot the machine, then both works fine for a couple of days.
I suspect both is because of all of the **** (um software, yea, that's it) work installs on them, to watch over my every keystroke.

I use Firefox as well as my main browser, but do use Edge as well (Windows 10).

The problems with Firefox are most likely to be related to ads, specifically, some Javascript based ads. The way around that is to use a Firefox Plug in called uBlock Origin (not plain uBlock). It is designed to block ads from sources that are known to carry poorly made or malicious sites. It just runs in the background, blocking stuff that has been identified by some reference sites as being bad/malicious. As a bonus, most of the time, Firefox runs faster, and smoother as it doesn't load or try to run the bad Javascrips ads.

There are many, many security issues with IE (all versions). Edge was written to get away from those problems. It isn't perfect, but the security problems are far,
far fewer in number.

Also, if you still have them enabled, get rid of Flash and Java.

Explorer is doing that for the last few days. So Firefox it is. My fat fingers and bad eyes would not be even able to get here from a phone

I'm on Google Chrome with Windows 8.1 and no problems. If I try Explorer, nothing but trouble, with most sites. I've heard good things about FireFox and am thinking of going to that instead.

I use Firefox on home pc and what ever AT&T uses for 4G on my I phone. I have not had to log in for so long on either device, I don't even remember my password without looking it up. I would say it is most likely something in your settings on your end.

Vivaldi is my browser.
Not had any problems.
I don't usually enable the flash objects though.

Never use Edge unless forced...
