IE9 log on/off problem

Postby Ben » Sun Jan 22, 2012 12:48 am

Hi all,

I am hoping one of the tech-savvy of you can assist with a problem I am experiencing.
Yesterday I downloaded and installed IE9 - actually it downloaded and installed itself all by itself.
What I am finding is that I can only remained logged on to DW for two or three minutes at a time before having to re-log on again.
Is there a solution for this?
Thanks

Ben

Greetings Ben,

My guess would be something to do with the cookie settings, but as I don't use IE (embrace the superiority of Google Chrome! :ugeek: ) I can't give a definitve recommendation.

To echo retrofuturist, the solution to the problem is to avoid IE altogether. Chrome and Firefox are far superior.
May you be happy. May you be a peace. May you be free from suffering.

Agreed. Firefox also has the ethical advantage in that it is open-source, community-developed.
If you have no choice in the mattter :console: I suspect Retro is right and you will have to tackle the endless thickets of dialog boxes. Good luck!

Look at the privacy options (see included screenshot). Click on the cogwheel on the right of your browser screen and select internet options. Fiddle a bit with the privacy settings until it works.

Other than that: I switched to Chrome myself and I can recommend it.
