Hi, I have made a small change to the site cookie settings.

If you are having trouble logging in, please search for all cookies with "portablefreeware.com" in it, remove them then try again.

Promise this will be a one-time thing and won't happen again.

Thank you!

Hi Andrew,

As my dear friend Midas (hi buddy) well said, we're the ones who should be thanking you for all the hard work on TPFC.

Andrew, many thanks for your email reply, indeed clearing the cookies solved the issue and I could login again.

You guys are awesome, I wish you all the best!

Spicydog :D

It's failing in Firefox 74 as well, even with uBlock and Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection disabled. You'll need to clear all portablefreeware.com and www.portablefreeware.com cookies to get it working again.

Andrew, any way you can detect it and show a message to affected users who may not see this forum post?

Update: I am making this topic a global annoucement, and changed the subject to make it clearer to the issue at hand.

Yep, you got that right. Especially as I had been lurking around for almost as long before joining in. :mrgreen:

Hehehe, so awesome to hear that, buddy :mrgreen:... I actually regret having been (and being) less active/present than I wish to be... However, life (with its ups and downs) sometimes steals focus from our hobbies, passions and such... There is not much we can do.
