Hi! When the login module is active on all pages of the website, does this mean a logged in user never 'loses' his/her session and never get's logged out? If have a site that has registered frontend users. And a lofgin module on every page of the site. And they clain the need to login again after some idle time. Can that be accurate?

I had to read that twice, because I didn't register that they are being timed out....
It's possible that they're falling victim to the recent trend in browsers to throttle CPU for hidden tabs. Maybe when those tabs are not visible, there isn't enough CPU to initiate the AJAX request that keeps sessions active.
I see it when I do animations. If the animation is in a background tab, when that tab is restored, the animation is all messed up.

OK, so that would only happen if the open a new browser tab while keeping the website tab open? I guess that might explain their issue. I think that's something that can;t be helped on the website / plugin side. I will let this client know this might happen when the navigate away from the site to a new tab. If the want to 'stay alive' they should remain on the page.
