So, at random intervals, when reading threads here, the screens is darkened and a popup pops up. It reads “You were logged out” and there is a refresh button.
If I hit the refresh button I am taken to a very weird version of the front page, with no way to log in.
If instead I use the nuke anything extension in Firefox and dispel the “screen darkener” and also the popup, then I seem to still be logged in and can read the rest of the thread. However, if I switch to or open a new thread, the popup happens again. Also, I cannot logout. As in there is no logout option in the menu.
So, I restart Firefox in safe mode and then I can see the normal front page, where I can then log out and log back in. It is freaking stupid.
After searching on Google, it seems that other people have had this problem with Discourse. But there were no solutions.
So, I am asking here in case anyone has a livable solution for it. Thanks.
