Joined channels not persistent across pages
« on: November 27, 2011, 04:49:29 pm »
Whenever I change pages, other channels that I have joined (such as those created by "/j test") are no longer in the channel switcher at the top of the OmnomIRC frame. However, if I'm in one of the five standard channels, that choice is persistent across pages.
Sounds like a cookie problem.
Edit: I'm using Firefox 8, by the way.

Weird. I know the messages in those special channels are not kept after switching tabs/pages, but I didn't realize that happened too.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yes, it's a known bug in FF that the channels joined aren't persistent. They started alphabetically sorting cookies that document.cookie returns in like FF4 or FF5 which broke it, I was relying it on being the last cookie returned (bad practice, but I pumped out that code in like 30 minutes)

(Read: Netham45 secretly wants you to switch from Firefox by adding bugs on purpose.)

It's true. IE>FF.
