Sounds a bit like this problem...
Overview

* So, you've made a great mod and it works fine. You release it and someone comes back saying "When I clicked on the xyz link it logged me out... why did this happen?" - and there's a simple answer.
* When you click on a link to another page in phpBB, it needs to keep track of who you are, whether you're logged in, etc. It does this this using sessions, each user has a unique session id (SID). This is then sent back to the user usually to be stored as a cookie.
o The append_sid() function works wonders with the session ID and makes sure that those users unfortunate enough to not have working cookies (yes, it has happened to me... Sad ) can still stay logged in. Instead of storing a cookie, it adds the session ID as a GET variable with an url (ie xyz.php?sid=c0b8c3bd254eb8258176d7cfb94dcb9f). Without this, phpBB does a security check and logs you out.

Maybe?

I have switched over to Firefox as well. Using MSN it would log me on automatic. With Firefox I now have to manually log in every time I use the site. I don't know what your issue is but I also can not replicate your problem. My advice is to chill a little and give the site owners some time to sort out any problems. It is new to all of us and we need to be patient.

Just be respectful because it is getting rid of a major problem (the spammers). I am sure no one is intentionally trying to cause you a problem. keep that in mind ! :D
I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn’t know how to use it.

Glad you found the culprit. I had AOL many many years ago. In the US they were like the mafia (once you are in you're in for life). It damn near took an act of congress for me to cancel my account. I finally had to cancel my credit card that the account was billed to so an end could be put to them. I will never EVER do business with AOL again ! They intentionally made it so hard to cancel that many just gave up. It turned off many here in the US and hence the downfall of the once mighty. I was an AOL member way back when they charged by the hour for internet use. I may be giving my age away here LOL.
I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn’t know how to use it.
