Interesting, thanks for the replies. If I'm logged in it happens all the time, either on my Android phone or my laptop (W10) using Firefox. Yet to try it with Opera. I'll try it under Linux another day.

With me the circumstances are:

I post
For some reason the post appears twice
I try to delete one of the posts
I get that message
I have to leave the site an log in again

I am also getting a response where I click on a topic and I go to the penultimate, rather than the latest, page. For some reason this happens more on some pages than other.

If you're using Google Chrome, that comes as no surprise to me. I usually find I have to tick the 'log me on automatically each visit' box to stop it doing precisely what you describe - and not just for this site either.

Chrome is crap anyway - use Opera.

Today, as I'm chez Boiler, I'm using Opera. No need to tick the little box (ever) with that and apart from my usual cache gripe, no problems at all.

I suppose what we should be looking at are the underlying engines behind the various browsers.

Also, I don't know what version of phpBB this forum runs - current version is 3.2.1

There's a lot of forum software out there - phpBB, vBulletin, XenForo to name but a few - but please God, not the WordPress plugin. It is glacially slow.

I've not looked to see what the bugfixes for phpBB 3 resolve yet.
