Default issues with keeping logged in

I would call this feedback so I guess this goes here...

Is there any reason why tech-forums doesn't save log in information for any browser besides firefox? I have cookies enabled but it never seems to save my log in information..and even logs me out randomly.

Is this already be looked at ( i sorta remember seeing something about this issue in thte past) or is it news to the staff?

Instead of loging in up top select new post and log in there. It will set the cookie.

I checked for the cookie settings but I couldn't find anything. It's in an include file outside the site directory and I only have access to all files within Tech-Forums.

I asked Larry about it but I think he forgot.
