While tightening things up, I found that Wilders was requiring me to login each time I restarted the browser (Chrome 14 or Fx 7). I think I tracked the problem down to my blocking clear.gif. I'm sure that I had clear.gif blocked sometime earlier (for quite some months, IIRC). My questions are: Is it due to a change at the forum end? If yes, was it because people like to remove "cookies" but don't chase after things like clear.gif? Don't mean to cause offense!
