If you\'d payed any attention to this site, it will also do the same, probably something to do with cache or sessions or something. It will probably be a small error that will be ironed out in future releases, I wouldnt worry about it, although it is fustrating

This has been discussed before. It is an issue with Joomla. Search for \'refresh twice\' if you want to read more.

There is a fix that you have to pay for to stop this. I feel it is a big problem that should have been looked at quite a while back.

This is definitely NOT Joomla problem. Problem is that simpleboard -> joomlaboard -> and now FireBoard maintain their own sessions for users, not using Joomla sessions, here is the code:

file: fireboard.php
Session maintaining code starts at line 226, later on you will find line responsible for reload

[code:1]line 265: echo \'setTimeout(\"window.location.reload( true )\",100);\';[/code:1]Why set timeout instead of direct reload in original code? Reload must happen after database update in next lines (out of if statement) otherwise there is endless loop of redirection.

FireBoard guys should definitely get a rid of their own session table and use Joomla session table to identify visitor. Or do dual system, in case of joomla installation use joomla sessions, in case of stand alone installation use fireboard sessions.

I replaced mentioned code with quick and dirty fix (may be not too dirty). Code odes exactly same but \"reload\" is happening \"on background\":
[code:1]global $mosConfig_live_site;
$database->setQuery(\"UPDATE #__fb_sessions SET lasttime=$systime where userid=$my->id\"«»);
$database->query();
mosRedirect($mosConfig_live_site.$_ENV[\"REQUEST_URI\"]);[/code:1]Works very nice.

This fixes this problem?

If yes, this is huge, why this isnt sticky!?

(i have FB 1.0 so i guess thats why i cant find that line in my fireboard.php so i cant try this...)

This \"fix\" really works. Any problem reported after applying this hack ? :/

No problems.

FB 1.0 has same line of code in fireboard.php file
[code:1]echo \'setTimeout(\"window.location.reload( true )\",100);\';[/code:1]I bet you find this in Simpleboard as well as in Joomlaboard.
