Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17166
Timeout on Login?

Is it just me or is the timeout ENTIRELY too short on this. I am in a
support environment, and cannot always have total attention to this. when I
was posting another bug it timed me out.. I had to re-log in (this is twice
this evening). It still posts the note/bug, but its sorta annoying.. it is
not like this is a super secure environment?? maybe 15-30 minutes would be
better for the timeout? I suppose it could be this Netscape browser.. but
it seems strange??
Just a thought...
The cookies that are set when you login are set to expire in 2069 or something

information that is more than 30 days old in the database so it cannot be that.
I suggest cleaning all bugzilla.redhat.com related cookies out of your cookie
file (with netscape closed of course) and try reloging in letting bugzilla set
fresh ones. Also if you go to another machine and login and then come back to
the original machine, it will make you login again because Bugzilla also
internally tracks machine name in the login information and that will no longer
