Web Sites Mysteriously Logs The User Off

Authenticated Web sites like the Gmail web app and coefiles.uncc.edu will cause any web site using http authentication to log off when the logoff feature is used. Specifically, logging out of Filedrawers or OWA will cause the user to logout of both applications and any others that use http authentication like Icinga . Unfortunately, this is a browser limitation and cannot be avoided.

In addition some web sites have may have a user idle timeout that will log the user off after a certain period of time.
