For every new session, the system repeatedly asks me to set preference before editing. Is there a way I can do that once for all and be done with it?

Your preferences are saved as cookies. If your browser allows it, they will be retained from one session to the next. If saving cookies is disabled, then you will have to re-enter preferences each time.

Gaby replied:

I'm "forced" to enable my browser to save cookies, otherwise I would not have been able to do those many everyday-life-thing on the web.

For instance, my bugzilla account at GCC has all the stuff saved for once.

Bill Page responded:

Yes. So you say that for some reason this is not working for you on Axiom Wiki?

Gaby confirmed:

Exactly.

Bill Page asked:

What browser are you using? The cookie thing works for me on FireFox? (both linux and windows) and using Explorer on Windows.

Gaby replied:

    soliton[15:54]% rpm -q mozilla
    mozilla-1.7.5-17.10

As I said, it works pretty well with other websites...

Bill Page commented:

Note: There is an intermediate option on most browsers that allows "session only" cookies which means the cookie values will be retained only while your browser is open, but not actually retained on disk.

Gaby observed:

I checked I did not use that one
and GCC bugzilla and many other sites would have not worked anyway.

not repeatable? --Bill Page (mozilla), Mon, 31 Jul 2006 21:22:57 -0500 reply
Gaby,

I tried to reproduce this on Fedora Core 3 with Mozilla:

  [wspage@localhost ~]$ rpm -q mozilla
  mozilla-1.7.12-1.3.1

but it seems to save cookies just fine. I can quit Mozilla, start again, access wiki.axiom-developer.org and edit a page (such as this one) without having to set preferences again.

Status: open => not reproducible
