Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


How do I get OpenStreetMap to keep me logged in long term? I check the "Remember Me" box every time I log in. If I go back to the site soon after that, I will still be logged in. But if I go back to the site maybe a week later, I'll be logged out again. It would be much more convenient if I stayed logged in forever.

I have cookies disabled in Firebox but I have an exception set for openstreetmap.org to allow cookies indefinitely. I have the same problem on my phone, which allows all cookies.

I don't know if this has been asked before. I've searched for "Stay Logged In", "Remember Me", and "Cookies".

Same for me (since ever?). Have added it as bug report: https://trac.openstreetmap.org/ticket/5028 .

If it works for someone please comment there.

Update: Problem likely identified. A server config has been changed. And: If you are using NoScript a workaround is available. See my comment in the bug report.

Update2: TomH removed an older workaround for another problem, which seems to be not needed anymore. Now www.openstreetmap.org works with NoScript's secure cookie setting without whitelisting it. It could still be a bug in NoScript - not sure.
