Losing Session on Android Devices?

Using Chrome, I regularly get the pink "Cannot contact server..." messages when the session is lost, so I go to the login page, which is awkward to navigate when an Android device is in "Letterbox/ Landscape" orientation because the keyboard covers the "Password" Input, and you can't scroll up or down the page because the username and password is in a dialog box.

On entering the username and password, I sometimes end up with a JS empty object "{}" in my browser instead of being taken back to the feeds.

Please can someone tell me why this is happening - thanks. I haven't looked how long the cookies to maintain your login are held for, but I get the impression that under some circumstances they are lost or dropped.

me too

I have this exact same issue, the loss of session and pink bar. I haven't quite figured out a reproduction case. It doesn't seem to be a timeout issue because I've had sessions die pretty quickly.

I am using google to authenticate so I never get the JSON {}.

I've had this happen across two different android phones (motox 2014) chrome beta channel. the cookies dont transfer across devices (and I had to log into theoldreader on the new device). so I doubt it is an old cookie hanging out and fucking things up.

I really wish I had a solid reproduction case for you. I'll keep paying attention.

It feels like the issue started about 1 to 2 months ago.

Also what is strange is that it will do the initial page load (I think with out of date or cached feed entries) and I can keep hitting all items and it won't notice the log out until I hit an article. then it will show the pink authentication box. and the next time I hit all items it will run me through the authentication flow.

cleared

I did clear both by virtue of the fact that I got an entirely new phone and cookies and cache don't move across (I checked). I've had the problem on both phones.

Very odd. After logging in, can you please let me know the expiration date of the "signed_at" cookie for theoldreader.com domain?
