System sometimes voids login status

At times, I have attempted to reply to a message, gotten to the reply page (which by all logic requires that I am logged in at that point, and entered text, only to have the system then tell me that I'm not logged in. I am then presented with a popup prompting me for my login and password.

I managed to avoid losing my text, by cutting and later pasting my reply text into a new reply screen that I accessed after logging back in, but would like to know how to prevent this from happening in the future.

At the top right of the page - does it say "Welcome lawman3966"?

If so - you're logged in.

This forum does not require you to be logged in to view posts. And if you try to reply it will prompt for logon.

That said - it's pretty obvious when you're not logged on - the upper right shows a logon prompt. There's a banner at the top, and bottom of the thread. (Just verified this in another browser.)

Thanks for your reply.
As I recall, the system DID say welcome lawman3966 on the "today's posts" screen.

I wasn't merely viewing posts. I was in the midst of replying to one, and had finished entering text into the reply box. Upon attempting to "submit reply" or "preview post" I got a popup box prompting me to log in (again).

That has happened to me quite a few times. I should know by now to Select All and Copy before posting a longer response.

It has also happened to me in the distant past but not for at least a year or so. Do you also check the "remember me" box when logging in? I think that sets a cookie in the browser so even if the browser closes for a short time or you go to another web site you're still logged in. Logging out removes the cookie.
