Who are you please?

What do you mean about logging in twice? Please contact MIF at the email address given if you are having problems signing in.

Happens to me too, need to enter the id/passwd twice to see "logged in as" message at the top.

I don't remember my password given to me...

that is why whenever I have to login I have to enter my gmail first to get the password....

that is irritating that's why I hardly sign out..

Hi,

Looks like we encounter the problem when chrome or opera is used.

Firefox worked fine logging in once.

Also, id/passwd is posted in plaintext, is it possible to upgrade it to secure it?

Hi gAr;

Maybe that is why I have never had this problem, I only use FF.

I see, I use FF for browsing and chrome for logging into registered sites.

Anyway, it's an unexpected behavior!

When I login with FF it is encrypted. Are you saying with Chrome it is not?

For me even when on FF it's not encrypted, id and passwd are sent over the network unencrypted.

Hmmm, how do you know this?

Checked using wireshark. The "live HTTP headers" FF addon can also be used to test that.

A part of the POST information looks like this:

form_sent=1&redirect_url=index.php&req_username=<myid>&req_password=<mypasswd>&login=Login

I did not know that program?! Wireshark, is it downloadable?

Yes, it is helpful to know the packets sent to and from your computer. Yes, it's freely downloadable.

I wanted to tell when I started using the forum, but did not think there would not be much problem since the messages are public anyway.

But recently read about the defacements/info stealing happening to ubuntu forum, app*e stores, and made the request to secure it.

I do believe that FF knows that this line is unsecured but the new server is very, very protective. It is the best one we have had.

I too believe the server is well protected. I was just trying to say that if there's any rogue router in between, it can get the login info.

Could there be one or more of them?

Can't say, only my speculation.

Even one is bad.
