Would it be possible to modify the fluther software so that logging out of fluther doesn't log me out of facebook?

Asked by anartist (14774points) March 21st, 2010

I like to start my internet rambling with 4 tabs up, iGoogle, gmail, flickr, and facebook, and now perhaps fluther. I hate going back to FB and having to go in again all the time. I know it’s a petty peeve, but I believe it’s fixable if it is also wanted by others, so this wheel is squeaking . . .

I just went through and tested on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Opera (All on default settings except for Chrome).
I am not experiencing this on any of those browsers. What browser are you using?

This is definitely an issue with settings you have set. If you say what you’re using, people may be able to help remedy the situation.

Are you only accessing Fluther through Facebook, via Firefox? Log into Fluther through

I am posting the screenshot to flickr and will post a link.
I have my fluther linked to facebook for dual postings—but I don’t see why fluther has to log me out of FB

I think it’s your security settings. Could not see your screen shot; you were logged out.

@PandoraBoxx it was a flickr link—should have been available anyway ?????

Nope, when I go to look at your flickr page, it requires me to log into Yahoo. If I didn’t have a Yahoo page, that’s as far as I could get. When I do log into Yahoo from your link, I get a message that your Flickr page is private and I cannot view it.

@PandoraBoxx I’ll find a way :-)

@anartist You could disconnect your account.

@andrew That’s what I plan to do as soon as I get a round tuitt.
Thanks for suggesting . . .
When I connected it did cross my mind that “plank walker” sounded a little ominous.

When I log off of Fluther it says it’s logging me off of FB, too… but I am never actually logged off. Do you have “stay signed in” clicked on your FB log-in? I do, and maybe that’s why it doesn’t really log me off.

Yes I do. I also have some overzealous cookie monsters that I am trying to tame.
