Whenever I submit a bug I often have to log in multiple times.
I have tried submitting bugs by first logging in, by going to the query page,
by coming to this page (enter_bug.cgi)
At the moment at the bottom of this page I can see I am logged in, my email
address appears next to 'Log Out' option.
This was the same when I entered my last bug. But once I clicked submit I
was asked to log in again.
I'll bet I get asked to log in again when I submit this.
Other times when I have made a bug, I log in, then I go back to the bug to
add a testcase, when I submit the add attachment form I am asked to log in,
once I log in, it says 'you did not attach a file', I just click back and
back and submit and then it works.

As you can see something somewhere (not saying its you but I'd appreciate it
if you took a look) is not right.

It sound to me that you're behind a transparent rotating proxy.  You can find a
whole lot of information on this in bug 20122.  I /think/ what was eventually
checked in is the ability for the admin to configure a netmask that the
logincookie is valid for.

Do you know if you are behind some kind of a rotating proxy?

Dont think I am, at least not a proxy maintained by anyone on our network but it
could be an upstream provider. I'm happy for you to close bug and assume I am.
I can live with multiple logins personnally I just didnt think it was very
good if everyone everywhere had to.

The easiest way to find out is to go to a site that simply echos back your IP
address and hit re-load every now and then to see if it changes.  I don't know
of any such sites, but if you're interested e-mail privately and I'll set
something up for you.

In fact, as I think about it, the address it echos back will probably be
different than what your system tells you your IP is (ipconfig /all).

I'm gonna go ahead and mark this bug as WORKSFORME as I haven't logged in for
probably a month on any of the three machines I access bugzilla from :)
