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. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
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 :)
