Mint Login

I’m a long-time Mint user (currently 2.17) and recently updated to the User Agent 007 Pepper Version 2.07.

After the update I started getting a periodic request to login to Mint, where before, once logged in, I stayed logged in and, even after a reboot, when the Mint page on my website opened, it didn’t request a login. Now I get the login request about (it seems) every 6-12 hours or so.

It’s probably a simple setting somewhere but I haven’t figured it out.

The other recent change was an update to the Camino browser I use for Mint. Camino recently went from 1.6 to 2.0. I checked the prefs but can’t find anything that would affect Mint’s login. I use a separate browser so the panes are always on a second monitor and I can watch our site’s traffic via ten minute Refreshes.

Our site is busier than usual right now due to Thanksgiving holiday content. At 20,000 plus unique users per day we’re nearly double our usual traffic. Not sure if that would affect Mint in this way.

i have the same issue. afteer a while i have to login again. i use the same versions.

btw: this forum REALLY misses a notify via mail feature!

This sounds like a cookie problem. Make sure that your browser is retaining cookies (if you’re using Safari, any cookies set while Private Browsing are deleted when you turn off Private Browsing).

If you’ve recently changed your Mint login info, try deleting all MintAuth cookies set by your domain and any variation of your domain (eg. leading www. or leading .). You could have a stale cookie tied to the old Mint login info.

It appeared the problem had gone away - didn’t need to login again for the past nine days.

Shaun’s cookie theory seems to make sense since I had just upgraded a major jump in versions of Camino, and I assumed the upgrade had somehow reset cookies (though it shouldn’t have).

But today I got the login prompts again.

The login prompt doesn’t appear when I reboot the computer or reopen the browser. It does it suddenly after several hours of being open. The Refresh Pepper 2.0 is set to ten minutes.

Not a big problem, just annoying, especially since it never happened until a few weeks ago.

I switched to Safari and the login problem went away. Obviously something changed in Camino 2.0.
