Starting about a week or so ago, when I am on (usually in the community forum) and I close the page, not exit, the next time I open I am not signed in, even though on every sign in the "stay signed in" box is checked, and I have set Ccleaner to not delete jalbum cookies. This has happened to me a few times in the past and I can't remember what the problem or fix was. I need a refresher.

Apparently the problem cropped up when I recently changed the default browser. Although I had protected the cookies from being deleted in the browser and in Ccleaner, apparently there was some combination of settings that still was alllowing the cookies to be deleted on browser exit. Through a series of experiments with other settings, the sign in is finally back to holding. Unfortunately, I can't describe what settings combination did the trick. Sorry for the false alarm.

Glad you got it worked out. Some of the "clear on exit" settings are very tough to find, as are the "what cookies to allow" settings.

I've had the opposite problem - if I want to logout as JeffTucker and login in with another, non-moderator account to check something, the browser stubbornly keeps logging me in!
