I visit a website every day. One of the features is a gallery of pictures. On a gallery display page, there are settings which control how the gallery is displayed. I can have them sorted by things when the pics were posted, filename, etc. I can also set how many pictures I want on a page.
I have been told that these display features are stored in cookies from the site.
The issue is that on the first page of the gallery, I set my display preferences which are sort by posted date, and 24 per page. I then refresh the page. Things work perfectly. Then I click next to go to the next page. After the new page is displayed, I find that the display settings have reverted to the default ones that I initially changed away from.
I opened FF Developed mode and looked at the cookie list. I used the inspector feature to find the cookie that was associated with the sort selection. There was one for per page (ppperpage). However, it looked like this:
None of the other cookies looks like this and that is why I am asking about cookie corruption.
If I delete the ppperpage cookie, and then use the set cookie to establish ppperpage 24, when I look at the cookie list everything looks OK. Now if I go from one page of the gallery to the next and look at the gallery display settings have reverted to the initial ones. And then if I look at the cookie list I see two ppperpage cookies, the one that I set and the one above has reappeared.
This is getting very bothersome and many others who use this gallery site are experiencing the same problem of losing the chosen settings as they advance to the next page of the gallery.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance for your help!
