Here's a new Blogger behaviour, that seems to have started recently.
Whenever I restart my browser, I stay logged in to GMail with no problem. Not so with Blogger.
My first view
When I start up the browser, this is what I'm always confronted with. So I hit Sign In.
A familiar sight
The old familiar Blogger Login screen pops up for a few seconds.
And now the dashboard
And quickly fades to the Dashboard. Now, I have to find the blog that I should have started with, and select View Blog, again.
And finally I can get to work
After selecting the blog from the dashboard, I am left in the right state to work on the blog. I can open any additional browser windows, and I have administrative access to any other of my blogs, too.
As soon as I close the browser, it's back to the top of this post, again. Apparently, Blogger creates a session cookie, from your GMail account status, but doesn't act upon it until you "Sign In". And having finally signed in, you must again select the blog which you want to view and update.
There's no security here, though. I got to my dashboard, with access to all of my blogs, purely by hitting the Sign In link in the Navbar. And, it's distracting having to reselect the blog.
I'd hate to be the first Blogger that assumes that he is safe, walks away with the Navbar showing the Sign In link, and comes back to find someone happily poking away at his blog, as an administrator.
I don't remember this under Classic Blogger. This needs to be fixed. Sign us in, completely, please, when the browser is restarted.
