  1. Glad to hear you have disocovered the root cause of the problem, Maggie. I use Google Chrome for blogging. I used Firefox for a long time, but had problems with comments when I started blogging, so changed to GC. I think Chrome and GMail are the most stable platforms for email and bloggers, purely based on my own experience, with no real evidence.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I will never tout one above the other, but I am well aware that Googleis the king of tracking along with Facebook. As long as we are aware of the lake in which we are swimming, then finding what works for us individually is what is important. I am just happy I can eliminate this frustration.

  2. I recently went back to “paid” status because I was tired of all the garbage done to ‘free’ users. I’ll stick to the basic and cheapest plan though. One way I found to ‘work’ around that business of being ‘banned’ from paid or business blogs when I was a free user was to fill out that crap they ask every time. Maybe that did encourage them to track me, but at least I could say something (which isn’t that important maybe) if I wanted to. Thanks for the heads up though. I’ll have to check out the tracking business. That’s just wrong.

    1. It is almost a no-win, so it is understanding our individual tolerance levels for invasion of privacy and then reacting accordingly. I, for one, am happy to have this somewhat resolved.

  3. I think you will find that to be the culprit. In terms of sensitivity to cross-site cookies, Firefox works the hardest to block them, followed by Safari with Chrome bringing up the rear.

    All three have stated their plans to block these, and the WP Happiness Engineers seem to be working on another way to pass around our credentials. One engineer suggested that work on that project might be causing the random-follower-dropping issue, but others said they are not linked.

    1. It makes sense, Dan. I am anxious to try this on Firefox. If they do, indeed, make an exception for login credentialing, it could be the best solution.

      I hope they get your dropped follower problem fixed. I think I had to unfollow and follow you to resolve my issue.

  4. I’ve had problems commenting on posts that don’t have “.wordpress.com” in the address for almost a year. I can comment on them from the reader, but not if I visit the site from ANY browser (on my iPhone, anyway). I’ve been trying to get the happiness engineers to fix this for months, but it remains unresolved.

  5. I too am a total Mac user and always have two sessions of WordPress open, one on Safari and one on Google Chrome (using Reader on Chrome). I manage to avoid the problem of inability to post on most occasions but, occasionally, will have to reload the session in order to proceed. Isn’t life grand!

    1. I am often logged on with both my iPhone and my iPad, both using Safari as my browser. I just want the basic features to work consistently! Not so much to ask I don’t think!
