I can sometimes just click on the LOGIN button in upper right, and it will automatically log me in... sometimes though when I click that, it takes me right to the login page where I have to enter my name (name automatically populates, password needs to be entered). Running Windows 10 and Chrome browser.

Staying logged in for days on Windows 7 with Firefox. You do have to select "remember me" or something similar. I get ticked off when I get booted out about once a month.

Makes no difference here. I can return to the site just a few hours later and it makes me log in again.

I am having a slightly different situation.

If I log in and use the "Remember Me" button, it only remembers me on the next page I go to. I have to NOT use that button for it to remember me for an entire session.
