This site flatly refuses to store your cookies. Had the same trouble on going for over a year. If you clear your cache and try to log back in, it takes 7-10 attempts before it finally stores. Brand spanking new installation of IE11 and had the same problems on IE10.
It may well be the browser that does not like the forum software, but this is the ONLY site I ever have trouble with.
The only way I could get it to store this time was by clicking on Verns name in the "people online" window, which takes you to a different login screen.
Out of interest Vern, why would Java be a requirement for logging in?.
