That's why it would be good to remove that or decrease it for users with let's say 100+ posts.

You need to upgrade your browser.
Upgrade do what? 2.0.0.16 is the current version from the 2.x branch. Maybe there's another workaround to make the browser vBulletin-friendly?

3.0? But that auto-logout should have nothing to do with 2.x or 3.x firefox version, unless forum is bugged.

Like I told folks earlier the auto-logout is a browser thing. What I would recommend for folks running into the issues is two things:

A) Make sure after you see the logout happen check your cookies location for your browser and make sure you have a cookie saved for forum.shrapnelgames.com.

B) If you have a cookie present then we may have to have you send it in to determine why the browser/application combo is not reading it properly.

Like I said this is all browser driven so having a cookie saved for forum.shrapnelgames.com should enable auto-login unless your browser is somehow munging the cookie in some way or saving it under a different domain, etc.

The current version of the browser, obviously. You're only going to run into more problems over time running obsolete software (esp. since FF 2 will not see new updates to the Gecko rendering engine, ala FF 3). If you're worried about screwing up your profile, just make a backup copy of it before upgrading..

I'd rather let the bleeding-edge adopters shake out the new bugs for a while. I'm not planning to switch to FF3 until they stop updating 2.x in December.

Ditto.

Besides, I hate IE7's layout and FF3 seems to be emulating their gui layout. I am hoping that when I finally make the switch that there will be (or are) themes to switch things back to the old 2.0 style.

You can't deny Mozilla for wanting to keep user experiences consistent. FireFox 3 is a very solid product and the customize tool bar function lets you put it back to the FF2 style more or less.

Besides, Firefox 3 isn't even bleeding edge anymore. FireFox 3.1 is already on its way and IE8 is in alpha.

besides, here's the FF2 theme for FF3

Yep, but don't forget some addons are still out of date for FF3. If you have critical need for tools like Firebug or the XML Developper Toolbar, you'd better still wait a for a while. But OK, very few people endure such needs as critical
