[Mac only... probably]

Just noticed an interesting issue trying to log in.

If you are on Safari and have private browsing switched on, you will not be able to log in. Because private browsing avoids using cookies this seems to stop login stone cold.

With Firefox there is no issue, just with Safari. I haven't tried Opera or IE.

Pretty much every forum uses private cookies to remember if you are logged in or not. Private cookies are no real issue - not in the same league as tracking cookies.

I suspect anyone on any browser that refuses cookies will have trouble staying logged on

Yeah, it's no problem switching to private browsing if already logged in, it's just that you can't log in if you are already on a private browse.

I'm not complaining, just letting others know just in case they have trouble logging in and can't tell why.
