    why does this forum set a cookie for user name (xf_user) that only retain 24h while session do not expire? I have to log in each day and this turns to annoying now.

    correction, is only 8h

    expiration time
    Code:
    25-10-2020 15:34:32
    we have currently 16:38 MESZ (germany), i assume server 9 hours behind because i get a clearing notification for
    Code:
    25-09-2021 22:34:20
    which is 8 hours ahead (also MESZ, germany)

    Don't pay any attention to that. Just login like normal. I think the cookie thing is there for people who have not created an account.

    I've checked keep me signed in but it doesn't work for me either. It probably has something to do with my browser settings but it's not such a hassle that I want to mess with it. Two clicks and I'm logged in again.

    the popup about cookie is also stored in a cookie, in summon it makes 3 cookies. what i forgot to say - that change occured in the shorter past, thats why i ask. i ever had wilders as exception and not to delete, but now its auto-deleting (expiration) after 8 hours.

    or is it a special setting for foreign (outside usa) users?

    currently it does not make sense for me.

    ok, i think i have a clue which is affected from the popup
    Code:
    Domain    www.wilderssecurity.com
    Name    xf_notice_dismiss
    Wert     -1
    Nur Host    true
    Pfad    /
    Sicher    false
    Nur HTTP    false
    Sitzung    true
    Ablaufdatum    session
    Store-Id    firefox-default
    clearing cookies and accept and login now sets a cookie valid for a month
    expires: 10/26/2020 14:03:47

    i expanded expiration date now until end of dec, see how it works.

    i re-installed an older version of "cookie autodelete" (3.4.0) extension for firefox, but also "cookie quick manager" and set the xf_user cookie as protected (no delete). The expiration date of that cookie is now counting up and on 10/29/2020 now (set on 10/26/2020). fingers crossed.
