And it's happening on Edge again. Firefox seems to be fine, cant tell for sure since it still has me logged in somehow on the FF browser. I usually have to login when I get to the forums.

The majority of issues for logins have been fixed, however, it often requires a password change to take affect. If you're logged in across different browsers your cookie will automatically log you in, but, if the cookie expires in one and you haven't changed your password since the update you will need to change your password to get it working.

The issue revolved around the encryption strength we were using for our passwords. A routine in the forum decided it wasn't strong enough (even though it was) and automatically upgraded password encryption which rendered the passwords unusable until reset.

TLDR:

Change your password. Login in again for each browser, problem shouldn't return. If needed, use the link above the login box to clear your NWFR cookies for each individual browser.
