    I have instant email notification for watched forum threads, but when I click on the 'View This Thread' box in said email I am always taken to the first page of the thread and am logged out. What gives?

    The email links shouldn't affect your login status. Are you sure you are actually logged in?

    Do you have some sort of proxy / plugin that might be affecting things? Can you try turning off all plugins?

    No proxy, and only standard plug-ins plus Garmin, Wacom tablet, OpenH264 Video codec (installed by Mozilla).

    I can navigate to forum threads using the History or Bookmark links (Firefox 42.0) and never have this problem. But if I use the link in the notification email I am logged out.

    Now I just got this message. Is this legit from MacRumors or is it Firefox? I re-started Firefox and the link worked and kept me logged in this time. Screen shot 2015-12-02 at 10.39.47 PM.png

    Could it be that you use Chrome as your browser but when you click on the links, it opens Safari?

    This occurs to me, when I use my Surface Pro. I use Chrome in windows but the default browser is IE (I need that to remain because of work requirements), so when I click on the link a different browser opens up.

    Hmm. This is legit from MacRumors. This happens when the security code that each page is embedded with doesn't match up with the logged in user, or it has expired.

    Usually this is a cache/proxy type issue. Are you on home or work wifi?

    No, I am on my wired home network. And the problem persists. Same thing happened with the notice to your recent post.

    And I am not having any browser switching issues.

    I guess I'll flush the Firefox cache.

    OK, looks like the cache flush did the trick for now. Hope it sticks.

    This is still an ongoing issue for me on OSX 10.6.8 with Firefox v43.0.4 and Mail v4.6. Can't believe I'm the only one.
