2 specific FP "preferences" won't stay "un-selected"?

1,125 218 May 13, 2017 at 07:54 AM
No matter how often I've tried, I don't seem to be able to get the "Show Featured Deals" and "Show Fire Deals" preferences to stay un-selected (their non-default setting). They stick as long as I'm logged in to the session during which I change them, but when I log out and then log back in, they've invariably reverted to their default "on" setting and it's getting pretty annoying. Does anyone (a) know what's going one and (b) know of a way to get them to stay "un-selected"? As far as I can tell, all my other "preferences" manage to remain as selected from session to session.

What system and browser are you using. Also are you closing your browser and deleting cookies?
Dev's will need as much info as possible to try to recreate the issue.

I'm using 32-bit Firefox 52.1.1 (which is the current/latest ESR version) and yes, I delete pretty much everything browser-related on a regular basis - cookies, cache, form data, history, etc., using CCleaner. I was assuming that like every other account preference, those were tied to my account (i.e., on the server side), but judging by your question, it's sounding like that's not the case?

I believe its because you are removing cookies, etc. I don't work for slickdeals, but I think that is how the preferences for those are handled. Would have to wait for a developer or someone to chime in though.

OK, thanks. That would be really annoying, but at least it would explanation the situation...

I'm glad it's not just me experiencing this. I too have the issue with FP items re-enabling themselves...in particular "Show Featured Deals". If I logout and back in, the Featured Deals are re-enabled. I don't think it's my browser's issue as I experience this with IE, Chrome and Firefox.
