MY GLITCHES BY DATE AND I AM USING ANDROID AND CHROME.

 

โ–ถ๏ธ*** [Thursday 7/4/24 9:45pm ET] ***

 

My name is NOT at the TOP of my screen. Just REGISTER and LOG IN indicating I am NOT logged in but the My Profile TAB is present = SO GRATEFUL I can post here in the forum. Anyone else have this issue or am I special and the only one?

โ–ถ๏ธ*** [Saturday 6/22/24 7:54am ET] ***โ—€๏ธ

 

[1] My Profile TAB was NOT at top of screen when I arrived to post my Good Morning to the group in the AARP Grief & Loss Forum = I could log into forum, but could NOT post. I was able to LOG OUT, LOG BACK IN and post = My Profile TAB was back at TOP of my screen.

 

[2] In the past, as the day/night progressed AFTER this 1st issue of NO My Profile TAB at the TOP of my screen - My Profile TAB went BYE BYE for days = I could log into forum, but could NOT post.

TWO AARP GLITCHES THAT ONLY AFFECTED SOME OF US.

 

[1] I have had to deal with being able to log in, but NOT post June 2nd to June 8th.

 

Now I did give up logging in on June 3rd.

 

I saw where OTHER folks had the SAME issue May 23rd to June 4th.

 

*** So I am guessing those who were affected were at DIFFERENT DATES ***

 

[2] Lol, just got back online from ANOTHER can log in but NOT post June 12th to June 19th.

 

WHILE NOT BEING ABLE TO POST.

 

[1] I tried 5 browsers - Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Samsung Internet.

 

[2] Tried 2 different Android Cell Phones, iPad, Library Computer and Library Laptop.

 

[3] I usually use my Android and Chrome which FINALLY worked BOTH times when AARP glitch was fixed.

 

*** I am wondering WHY this glitch ONLY affects SOME and NOT everyone??? ***

 

Hmmm, maybe SOME devices and browsers are immune to AARP glitches.

 

Thanks,

Nicole  ๐Ÿ‘ต

(Thursday 6/27/24 3:29pm ET) Thanks Marcy @MarcyW882921 , even my iPad which uses Safari would NOT show the My Profile TAB at TOP of screen AFTER I logged in.

 

You CANNOT post in this forum IF this TAB is missing.  ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

 

Lol, today is Thursday and the LAST time this TAB disappeared for me was Monday. I did let the AARP Web Team know and keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I DO NOT get LOCKED OUT a 3rd time.  ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

 

Anyway, the AARP Moderator @Underbat APPRECIATES our responses - thank you!!!  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

 

So GRATEFUL he cares enough to let AARP Management know about this discussion.

@SummerIsTooHOT,

Since you are wondering why the same glitches don't affect all devices, it is likely that much of the code on these webpages (HTML, Javascript, and CSS/styles) runs locally in your browser. That scenario creates a heavy dependence on your device (for speed of execution), your OS and your browser version. Compatibility can change with each new version. Developers can end up in an "arms race" trying to support the major browsers.

Browsers-Safari and Chrome.

OS-iOS 17.5.1 for the moment and subject to change, which means iPhone.

 

when I have problem logging in I sign out and just log back in.

or do an update of my OS, reboot (turn off and turn on again).

 

Froze

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

Anyone else had the SAME issue?  ๐Ÿ“ธ  Attachment  ๐Ÿ“ธ  My Profile TAB was MISSING from TOP of my screen, but I was logged in, but could NOT post.
