A really, really minor thing, but was wondering why, the when forum is reloaded after Firefox browser is restarted, I see this...

http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?token=9V94M1KGog4jKxEXg8ye

and have to delete all stuff after the ? for the forum to load.

Thanks.

That has been discussed already.
It is a known problem that seems to be session related.

The keyword here is "token", look for that in recent posts of this forum.

I'm not sure this is something the staff here can solve in any other way than updating the forum software, but that is quite some work and requires downtime for the forum (i would guess an entire day), after which unavoidable more bugs will pop up..
So even if there would be a known solution for this, applying it will take good consideration, planning and time.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

Ah, I should have done a search, sorry....

Anyway, thanks for the quick reply.

It's the totally garbage forum software.  If you put the computer to sleep, restart - or presumably close the browser (which I rarely do), you get hit (somewhat, but not entirely randomly) with this terrible bug. You just have to remove the "token" (from each URL where you see it) and it will then bring back correct URLs - as long as you do not let it go to another tab which still has the token.

Clearly the "staff" here have no idea why it is happening and are unable to resolve this with the writers of the crap forum software.  And clearly it is simply too difficult to migrate to more reliable software - which I absolutely understand.

AWOL

I use Firefox all the time and I've never seen this.
Bizarre.

I did see this, once or twice.
Not a problem for me so far.
But that still makes it a bug.

Installing / migrating to another software has other consequences except lots of work and time to spend.
This SMF is a free software, and that will have had some influence in choosing the software i guess.
I have no idea about costs for other software so can't comment on that.
