have been reading and making comments on items in the Adobe Forums.
Despite my being signed in. After a I made a Reply in one forum topics and dismissed the window (I go to topics from the e-mail Notifications so I can read and just comment on what I want to), I received this strange Pop up Box requesting Username and Password and mentions something about Jive software.
Has any one else experienced such? I dismissed it without filling in, and was able to go into nex topic but was slow doing so.
At about what time did this happen (and let us know what time zone you are in)? My guess is that the server node you were on went down and you got switched over to another node and for some reason or other it asked for your Jive Forums name/password (which we don’t use here) instead of your Adobe credentials. By the time you moved to the next message the node transition had finished.
I did see some node alerts overnight and again this morning.
Eastern Daylight Time (Eastern Standard Time) in VA Mid-Atlantic Area (UTC -5:00 ?)
It was just a few minutes before I posted the question.
(In FireFox or SeaMonkey when you set up some newsgroups that require authentication of some type a similar box will pop up asking for Username and Password. Usually if you do this you have option to save then in Username /password database so you don't have to enter it again. It was similar looking to this. I was so surprised by it I didn't thing to create a screen shot.)

Not PJ and use Internet Explorer, but just after 8AM US West Coast I had a HORRIBLE time trying to login and actually get to ANY page
Now, 9AM, all seems to be working again
For what it's worth... The forums have been especially skippy today, sometimes just not connecting, sometimes failing anytime a new link/forum is attempted, sometimes only connecting for a close and reopen browser, sometimes presenting trhe Adobe "temporarily out of service" screen, sometimes failing to a 404-type alert. While the one from below occured at ~3PM US EST, they've been popping up all day since I got on at 7 AM US EST - and are what I believe Phillip is talking about.
Overall since the new forum software the behavior has been somewhat better, though nothing stellar. I still end up wating for things to load on a regular basis throughout any day.
Confirmed, sometimes dodgy, and working great at other times. I just got a "you're not logged in" notification when trying to respond to this very thread.
You're saying no new software has been loaded? I ask because a few minutes ago, just after having replied to a thread, I was taken back to the top of the thread rather than the bottom. I suppose something could have stopped working just at that instant...
A few bug fixes. Some of it “behind the scenes.” And some cosmetic changes to make it more obvious how to start a discussion and make search more prominent to encourage users to search before posting.
Other than the random access problems lately, I have not noticed anything "odd" about the Forums
So I will just say that I am SO glad that the Forum software IS being updated as needed, not that we are not stuck on the ancient 2x version
