    I would bet that you used the "Remember me" feature when you signed in at www. but not when you signed in at http://

    Your browser stores this sign-in information by URL and is not smart enough to know that those are the same sites.

    It does cause a problem sometimes when you are logged in as "www." and click on a link that is "http://" [Broken].[/URL] Well, only if you want to reply to the "http://" [Broken] link where you would have to sign in again or reload it with the www added. Also you will get the ads if you're gold, etc.
