I'm running Windows 7 for some time now and use Internet Explorer 8 as my main browser. What I've noticed is that it "loses" cookies A LOT! I mean it!
I log in into a side checking the remember me checkbox. I reboot the computer/restart the browser, go to the site, get logged in automatically -> I'm happy. From time to time however, I'm asked for the credentials.
Normal situation you would say. So would I if it didn't happen few times a week. Come on!
On Internet Explorer 7 I didn't notice this as much. Cookies were lost once a quarter or so. Note that i was using IE7Pro with my IE - dunno however if it has anything to do with my current problem.
Anyway I wonder if this behavior is "normal" or is it only me?
more info for people that suggest it may be normal - cookie expiring and stuff. When it happens I loose all auth cookies - gmail, bloglines and whatnot!
