Security problem

In Firefox
If I close the browser window (tab) but don't logout then I go back to the site I am still logged in

Re: Security problem

I've noticed this too Jim, there must be a session timeout setting somewhere so we'll dig around and see what we can find...

Re: Security problem

That's normal behaviour on loads of websites - and why many banks tell you to close the browser completely after an on-line banking session.

Re: Security problem

True, but I'm sure I've noticed the session timeout to be longer than I'd expect. I might be imagining things but it won't do any harm to check how things are configured anyway.
