What is Private Browsing?

Private Browsing, introduced by Apple as part of iOS 5 in October 2011, is a setting for the mobile Safari browser that disables several standard tracking and data collection features that are common to most browsers.

Enabling Private Browsing blocks websites from placing cookies on your iOS device. While cookies can be used by sites to track visitors for advertising purposes, they also enable sites to remember user information that can be used to automatically log a user back in when they revisit the site, or auto-fill certain information. As an example, if you visit and log in with your account information, the website will remember who you are when you revisit the site later. Without cookies, you’d have to log-in every time you visited Amazon. Depending on your preferences for security, this can be either a positive or negative result of blocking cookies.

Solution: Turn off Private Browsing.

Sticky maybe? There's usually at least one of these threads per week.

If you just closed your porn tabs and getting back on TD, you're going to have a bad time.

I don't use private browsing,but I have to re-pull up the site constantly. It's the only site that goes blank. I'm used to it at this point.

I leave it open in Safari. When I pull up the page, it’s blank meaning just a search box. I have type in Tigerdroppings to pull it up again.

Happens to me too. Not every single time, but probably 60-70%

Nice to see I'm not alone

Yep, it’s very annoying. It happens at least once per day.

Chicken. This is Dick Leverage.

My account auto logged me out for the first time since I set it up in 2013. I have no idea what email address I used back then and even if I did it would t be activated today. This Dirk Dawgler name was what I registered under originally in 2011 and then I switched handles in Nov 2013.

Can you take the email associated with this Dirk Dawgler handle and apply it to my Dick Leverage handle so I can log back in?

Would it be possible for you to have the authors name appear right after the time stamp for all replies in a thread ?

To see the sender to individual replies now is difficult on smaller screens, unless it’s open to a wider view than necessary. All of the blank area under the senders profile is just wasted space.

Simple thanks would be enough. Why all the slobbering.
