JBidwatcher can no more log in Ebay

Reported by Claude | November 25th, 2019 @ 11:24 AM | in 2.1 Release

JBidwatcher was working perfectly untly last Friday. Now when I try to log, a message appears " Did not successfully retrieve the sign in cookie for ebay.co.uk".
And the light stay red and write "Not logged in"

I try to delete the cookies. But it is the same result.
What's happend ?
Thanks

    I'm getting similar problems since 2019 November 22. Before that, jbidwatcher had been quite reliable as a sniping bidder on my Win 7 system. Now login to eBay is unreliable, most of the time shows the red light. SOmetimes by doing a system shutdown & restart I get it to work again, but it doesn't stay good. I've seen various messages, here's a set of 3 lines from log: "Couldn't sign in! / Server returned HTTP response code 405 for URL:https://www.ebay.com/signin/s / Did not successfully retrieve the signin cookie from ebay.com

    Same Problem. Worked a few days ago but failed to snipe today. Noticed that 'Not Logged in' . Activity Log used to say error 405 but now says Tue Nov 26 22:51:41 GMT 2019: Getting the sign in cookie for ebay.com
    Tue Nov 26 22:51:42 GMT 2019: Done getting the sign in cookie for ebay.com
    But still showing 'Not Logged in'

    Same here. Could it be a Java update issue? I recently updated Java. Yet, i used a few days ago and it worked fine

    Since I don't recall updating my jbidwatcher 2.1 close to the onset of this problem, my assumption is something else upset the environment - perhaps a Win7 patch (in my case), or perhaps Java, or something eBay did. My Java was not fully up-to-date when login problem started, found general recommendation to update Java if jbw problems arise, so updated to current Java - but that did not make any difference. Bit of a puzzle. Wonder how many with same problem run Win7 with what antivirus - MSE ? I also run an unrelated special app on same Win7 system which requires connection to a web address and port - it stopped working around the same time, and remains non-functional - reports connection error. Very frustrating.

    In fact the problem with jbidwatcher is my only current problem, that unrelated app mentioned at end of my 2019-11-29 10:44 msg is fixed - different situation.
    As for jbidwatcher, guess I better leave it down for a few days to see if that helps. No mention about capcha in the log or msgs though ???

    Here's typical log excerpt whenever I "Refresh eBay Session". At jbidwatcher startup it's quite similar.
