I seem to time out almost instantly when I access paperbackswap.com and I have to sign out and back in which is time consuming ..... I also can't surf from one site to another without signing out and back in ...... please advise?

This may not be the issue you with- but many are having problems using IE 7, 8 or Chrome.  I have IE 7 but downloaded firefox for PBS and couple of other sites.

If it doesn't if you are an AOL user there are some issues with AOL and this site - they use aproxy server, you may need to clear your internet cache and temp internet files.  I had alot of problems with the pages freezing, closing on occassion and since moving to firefox I am working ok.  If I can find the link - just saw it recently I will post it back here!

If you use AOL - here is a thread that discussed thie issues - scroll down the thread and you will find the instructions.  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=176047

Good Luck

If you're using IE, try resetting your security and privacy settings to the defaults and make sure you don't have any software running in the background that deletes browser cookies.

I took jubead's advice and downloaded firefox and have had no problems with PBS since.  I can have lots of stuff open (me bad) with no trouble either.
