    I keep logging in, and when I attempt to post something I am somehow NOT logged in and have to do that again.

    Does this happen to anyone else? If not it may be something that my browser or an add-on is doing. Just want to know it's not a site bug before I go looking for other causes.

    Are you checking the 'remember me' button when re-logging in?

    No.

    I'm pretty sure it's something an add-on is doing. I have a bunch of them, mostly security and ad/pop-up blocking in nature, there may be a couple interacting poorly.

    But Firefox acts weird sometimes as well, for example a lot of videos will not load or play even with all of the add-ons shut off. I have to switch to Safari if I really feel the need to see something.

    It bears investigation.

    I used to switch to Chrome similarly, but now click the Firefox' address bar's security shield allowing pop-ups for session as well as Disconect-white list the site.Worked for CBS.

    There's a thread on f.net right now, a fellow had questions about knee braces. He posted several pictures, apparently. They appear as blank spaces for me. This has happened on other sites as well.

    The Firefox security blocking which the security shield shows me is, it says, protecting from tracking. Disabling that did nothing, the photos are still invisible.

    But I haven't been logged out yet at least.
