Hello all,

For some reason, if I log in in my (classic) ASP application since having installed IE7, I am wiped out after about 4 minutes or so, meaning that some session variables must have been blanked.

Apparently the ASP session cookies cease to exist, which makes me unhappy, knowing that my visitors are steadily upgrading to IE7.

Another cookie-oriented problem is that for one reason or the other, all cookies are wiped out on a more or less regular basis, even if they are told to stay alive for at least 24 hours. This happens almost randomly / erraticly.


When I was still using IE6, I had none of these problems. Very sure about that.

I am currently on XP-home and using IE7.0.5730.11.

The phenomenon occurs on both the 2 pc's to which I have access, both in different environments but each upgraded to IE7 with similar standard settings (upgraded "as-is"). So it's quite unlikely to be a workstation issue.


Wise words are appreciated :)


Thanks and regards,

Charles

Do you have more than one IE7 browser window opened , the cookies sometimes get deleted when a window is closed.

That's correct, the number of IE7 browser windows does vary indeed. Like it did when I used IE6.

This is an IE7 bug. The session cookies are getting deleted when you close a window. At the moment no fix exists accept not to use cookies for your session variables. The problem only exists on certain computers. The problem will not occur as often if you change your settings in Tools/Internet Options/General/Browser History Settings/Everytime I visit the web page.

A suggestion from a microsoft help suggests that the start home page in the IE7 should be set to a internet page and not a local file. When you open your IE7, does your set default home page open, if not download the script to fix this supplied here http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp

Let me know how you get on

greetings

Thanks for your contribution.

However, today I started a session (I "logged in"), and opened neither other IE7 windows nor new tabs.
I left IE7 alone. I didn't move at all, so to speak.
Still, after some 3 minutes, my session was lost.

My default start page is google and not some local file.

Best...

Charles

Besides,

I also found out that IE7 does not handle ASP buffer flushing, whereas Firefox handles this perfectly.
Given that ASP is a Microsoft product in the first place, this is quite amazing.
Makes me wonder what IE7 testing has looked like....
