I recently reverted to Firefox after a 2 month trial of Chrome.  Even when I was using Chrome, and still today using Firefox I had to log in on the portal, then log in to the forums. Is this usual, or, why can't I just log in once?  Even setting up the stay logged in  option in my control panel does not work.  Any advice please?

Re: Cookies

The forums and portal are totally separate as regards logging in.
The reason is fairly straightforward - when you log into the portal you are accessing all your account related information and hence it needs to be totally secure.
On the forums the moderators have a fair bit of access which cannot be allowed on the portal
