@bobwest,

I'm still using gmail.

in that "mention notification" there're 3 buttons:

- view mentioned post
- view list of mentions
- modify alert settings

I can access all of them via the email. but only when I'm logged in. if I'm not logged in, then the fio pages are flickering.

Thanks.

@Big Mike, I think this shows that the issue is at my end, something to do with Gmail or Google here.

I was logged in to FIO while this happened. I tried logging out and logging back in to FIO. No change.

I closed and opened Google and Gmail (I do that every day anyway.) No change.

I cleared the Google cache of the following:
- Browsing history
- Cookies and other site data
- Cached images and files

Then closed and reopened Google and then Gmail.

No change from any of this either.

I am open to suggestions. Something is still not working right, but this is not my within my expertise.

Bob.

-----------------

Edit: or perhaps something relating to me or my settings on FIO? I haven't changed anything, myself.

Got it! (Sort of.)

OK, this is part of it: I was starting Gmail just now and I noticed, as it was starting up, that down in the lower right corner it said something like "Loading Standard View," and it also had a link to "Load Basic HTML," so I clicked on that instead, and got something kind of similar to the style of page before Gmail's recent change to a new format a few weeks ago.

While in the "basic HTML" view, when I clicked on the "View Mentioned Post" button in the FIO notice, it first printed out the redirection url on a blank page (never did that before), and then went right to the FIO post!

So:

1. It's working, in an odd way.
2. There's something about the latest update to Gmail that does not take the redirection from the notification page button, and they made that change in the evening 2 days ago (10/25/18), because before that the new "Standard View" worked fine with these FIO notices.
3. I imagine there will be other users for whom this kind of redirection is not working, and not just from FIO, so Google probably will do a fix fairly soon.
4. I have no idea why @Silvester17 doesn't have the problem. Which Gmail view are you on, if I may ask? Did you take the upgrades?

If anyone else who is on Gmail has this issue, they can follow this procedure until Gmail does a fix.

Bob.

I'm on Chrome too, and the FIO notices worked for me up to two days ago, so this is a mystery.

Thanks for the help and info.

Bob.

Bob, forward yourself one of the emails. Does the forwarded message (copy) have the same issue?

If yes, please forward me a copy of one of your emails to mike@futures.io so I can try it out on gmail.

Mike

@Big Mike when I just logged in a few minutes ago, I noticed I was logged in as another elite member, something like 'vfxxx' I believe. I went to a different page and then everything reverted back to normal with my username.

That's a cache issue. It's impossible to be logged in as another user by accident, but it may be possible that an interim page like login can show another username.

I thought I fixed that months ago but will take another look tomorrow.

Caching doesn't apply to non-guest users. It's all created dynamically on the fly. But the interim page for login is my best guess...

OK so I just looked again, as this is a major thing to me (seeing someone elses username as logged in).

I couldn't find any evidence of any issue with the caching. I ran a bunch of tests across the 100k+ cached pages in memory, and none of them showed any logged in user. I checked against multiple methods to verify this, examining HTML for hints the user is logged in (using grep -lr) such as cookies, user id's, and other HTML markup that happens only when logged in.

So, if this happens again please take a screenshot that includes the exact URL you are on and the username you see, so I can find the exact occurrence of this.
