Settings being reset without asking
Which browser are you using and on what OS? I know that LingQ has a problem with Safari on Mac not holding onto settings. I switched over to using Chrome just for LingQ and I haven't had any issues since then.
This sounds like it could be it, but I'm on Chrome on Mac Sierra (10.12). I can try updating I guess
@cbowen2 let me know if updating helped. If not, I'll ask our developers to check what could be the problem.
Your settings are saved in cookies. If you have any program installed on your device that automatically clears your cache and cookies each time you restart the browser, that is why your settings reset too.
Thanks for your response. That makes sense, but it only happens for LingQ - I don't regularly delete my cookies or cache, and no other sites show any signs of this whenever it happens. It's very much specific to this site.
Update - it's happened again, and my settings are fine. It's LingQ.
Settings aren't saved in cookies on all websites, but they are on LingQ. So to prevent that to happen you need to avoid deleting browser's cookies. That's the only way at the moment,
Yeah I'm not doing that though. This is specifically a problem with LingQ.
