    Someone will be along any time now to tell you 1) that you should expect glitches like this when you use a beta version and 2) That is isnt really a problem because you should log out whenever you leave a site...
  2. what is going on

    Same problem. Started @15 days ago when i "upgraded" to a more recent beta. The most help i have gotten so far was being told that i need to expect things like that when using a beta release(it was out a week) and that i am wrong not to log out of sites on my computer...its a desktop and it requires me to sign in, so no one is going to just fire it up and use my browser! Its my computer and i set it up to work for me. After past problems and now this I can tell you there is no serious help here. Just Beta Beta Beta and more Beta bot no more better. If you cant fix it they can supply rhetoric that castigates you and your choices as a user. Isnt that a telling tale? So far no usable answer to the problem i originally posted. I also submitted a bug report asking for help and here we are going on 16 days later with no response. I came up with my own solution. I went back to firefox. Its a browser with real tech support where you are not a test dummy and treated like one. It does everything i used this browser for, lots of extensions/addons for getting what you want. I am Beta free.
  3. Web page sign in issues

    This problem started 6-7 days ago when i upgraded. The most help i have gotten so far was being told that i need to expect things like that when using a beta release(it was out a week). It appears that there is almost no real help here anymore, just commenters who can provide great insight like: I guess you shouldnt have done that. Beta Beta Beta. So far no usable answer to the problem i originally posted. I had also submitted a bug report asking for help and here we are going on 7 days later with no response and others reporting similar problem. As i browse thru I see there are other problems without real answers too. I came up with my own solution. I went back to firefox. Its a browser with real tech support where you are not a test dummy and treated like one. It does everything i used this browser for; lots of extensions/addons for getting what you want. I am Beta free and liking the new features they have since i left several years ago.
  4. 5.2.7.2300 AGAIN LOG OUT

    Same problem. Started 5-6 days ago when i upgraded. The most help i have gotten so far was being told that i need to expect things like that when using a beta release(it was out a week). You need to understand that anymore there is almost no help here. Beta Beta Beta. So far no usable answer to the problem i originally posted. I also submitted a bug report asking for help and here we are going on 6 days later with no response. I came up with my own solution. I went back to firefox. Its a browser with real tech support where you are not a test dummy and treated like one. It does everything i used this browser for, lots of extensions/addons for getting what you want. I am Beta free.
  5. Data being deleted on browser exit

    Pablo, I came up with my own solution. You need to understand that anymore there is almost no help. Beta Beta Beta. I found a browser with real tech support where you are not a test subject. So far no usable answer to the problem i originally posted that is noted above(the first of the links) by Magdalene. I also submitted a bug report asking for help and here were are going on 5 days later and no response. I went back to firefox. Does everything i used his browser for. I am Beta free.
  6. your default browser is at risk maxthon

    I have not set any of the 3 browsers i have as default and get the message from all of them. They each/all want you to make them the top dog on your device, because there is money at stake. http://www.economysecrets.com/web-browsers-make-money/
  7. Web page sign in issues

    It would have been corrupted at the download and install of 5.2.7.2300 as that is when the problem started. What i need is direction on how to resolve the issue. I just submitted a bug report so hopefully help is coming. I would prefer to not have to use passkeeper for most of this browsing. I think it has to be something to do with rejecting cookies...But i just checked in the that section and it is set to allow cookies and third party cookies...
  8. Web page sign in issues

    So without a followup answer I have now tried 5.2.7.2100 and went back to 5.2.7.2000. I have the same problem now on all of them that began with the download and use of 5.2.7.2300. No passwords are remembered after closing the browser. That means that every page i visit everytime i open the browser requires me to log in. Something was changed by the install this morning. I need help figuring out what. I also signed out of the browser and signed back in to see if that would help but it did not.
  9. Web page sign in issues

    Has any other user of this beta version reported this type of problem? it has been out about a week? It seems that issue would have been noticed by someone before now. To return to version 5.2.7.2000 do i just download and install the same way i would if i were upgrading?
  10. Web page sign in issues

    I am aware that it is a beta version. I have used beta versions in the past and never had this issue. Are you saying i should go back to 5.2.7.2000?
  11. I was using version 5.2.7.2000 until this morning. This morning i installed beta version 5.2.7.2300. Running on Windows 10 on a desktop. Ever since i installed the beta version i need to sign in to all of my web pages every time i visit after closing the browser(as if it is automatically signing me out) - despite clicking on keep me signed in. I am running signed into the browser. I am using normal windows, not private. Nothing else has changed or been updated in the past several day. Never had this happen before. I went through the browser settings, but didnt notice anything that ought to be clicked or unclicked to get me back to running "normal". What do i need to jiggle to get this back to not being a pain in the neck.
  12. Just upgraded to 4.9.4.2000 a couple of days ago. On Win 10. Each time i launch it i get a windows message asking if i want to allow this app to make changes to my computer. I upgrades because i had been getting unsupporeted browser messages on multiple websites. I am still getting some, not as many but Yahoo Mail has been consistent since before and now after that upgrade. You’re seeing Basic Mail because you’re using an unsupported Internet browser. Upgrade your browser for the full Yahoo experience. Don't show this again. I also note that when i X out the browser is takes about a minute before it closes.
  13. 4.4.3.4000 update

    Oddly, I am sure i clicked on that and was not happy to see something labeled beta, but went ahead and installed any way thinking i was now up to date. I now have 4.4.4.4000. I do not understand why clicking on about continues to tell me i am up to date when clearly i was not.
  14. Yahoo Mail and other site problems.

    Thank you. I can be more patient now.
  15. 4.4.3.4000 update

    BugSir007 replied at 2014-12-15 18:34 Hi GrizzieBear, Glad to talk to you. As mentioned above, ungrouping quick dials shouldn't cause loos ... I upgraded from an old version that kept telling me it was up to date to 4.4.3.600 yesterday hoping it would solve some other problems (did not-I have posed that problem in a different thread). I did experience what a few others have complained about here (and this discussion is about a version that is older than mine): when i un-grouped some of my tile/links vanished, gone. I had to spend some time thinking about what was missing, figured it out and added them back. I found no way to re-group. I found no way to resize any of the tiles despite trying. I am running W7. I have not experienced any freezing, but like i posed in a different thread, several sites say my browser is out of date with Yahoo mail giving me fits-it constantly reverts to basic telling me it is because of the out of date browser.
