This Forum Site on Windows Edge - 11/03/17 10:14 AM

Hi,

I'm not sure whether it's a universal problem or just my system?

If I log into the forum on Windows 10 Edge, every time I change page it logs me out confused

Everything is fine if I use Google Chrome, which isn't my preferred browser, but my only option at the moment.

Just wondering if anybody's experienced this and has a solution?

Thanks in advance

Dave

Dave,
Yes, older versions have Edge have been buggy with the latest versions of UBB. I'll bet your running an older Edge v40.######. Try upgrading your Edge to v41.###### and it should fix the problem.

Ken,
You might be the last person on the planet still using IE. smirk

I know that our latest UBB is not at optimized for IE. I think the last release was 11 (early on with Windows 10) and its no longer supported in favor of Edge.

You're out of luck with IE. Sorry. Chrome is the current 400lb gorilla.

Actually the IE is on my work laptop that I have no control over. At home I use Chrome and have no problems.

I'm on IE right now with no problems on Windows 10. What I like about IE over Edge is you can still automatically delete browsing history on program closure. smile

I was having problems with Edge also. I had to re-register every time in order to log in. Everything is fine now after the update.

A slight hijack, but Edge sucks so badly that a MS employee had to download, install, and switch to Chrome during a live product demo at Microsoft's annual IT conference: Chrome Saves The Day For MSFT Employees When Edge Crashes

I have been through enough demos from hell to sympathize with the guy, but watching the video is a hoot.

Friends don't let friends use Edge.

According to Microsoft and Windows update, I've got the latest version of Edge for my desktop which is 40.15063.674.0. As far as I'm aware, you can't upgrade it separately as it's an integral part of W10.

Dave,
I think there is a Windows patch you have to apply first before it will update to the new Edge. Let me see if I can find it.....

I've noticed that if I 'log' in and don't tick the 'keep me logged in box', I stay logged in for a while, even if I come out of the site and return a while later, although it does log me out eventually. However, if I tick the box, I'm logged out as soon as I change the page.

Windows has just completed a significant update and the problem has disappeared.
