After login to TYPO3 backend, even when im working and making some moves in backend, the system is disabling my session and logs me off.
When this appear i get an error in firebug console "handler is undefined" at line 3966 in prototype.js file.

I think the same problem is described here:

I can reproduce this bug with 4.5.2 and 4.5.3 in FF5.

The console shows:
GET http://domain.tld/typo3/ajax.php?_dc=1309863298412&ajaxID=BackendLogin%3A%3AisTimedOut&skipSessionUpdate=1

_dc 1309863298412
ajaxID BackendLogin::isTimedOut
skipSessionUpdate 1

Answer: {"login":{"timed_out":true}}

handler is undefined
Line 3966 in http://domain.tld/typo3temp/compressor/prototype-63d51f3222c80211bf7a27d10bba929d.js

I have added a screenshot with linenumbers from this file

I'm not quite sure if the logouts are really caused by this JS error.
I get this error all the time, but the BE works as expected.
Anyhow, this error is annoying.

after some testings on different systems with different browsers.
I only can confirm this issue with Firefox 5. In the same TYPO3 Installation with Firefox 4 I have no problems.

I also get this Error and i have FF 3.6. I don't think that it depends on the browser you have.

The error occurs on FF 3.6+ I can confirm same behavior on FF 5.0, 6.0 and TYPO 4.4.x

I confirm this issue with Typo3 4.4.x and 4.5.x in Firefox 3.6 and later...

Has anyone an idea why this happens ? This auto-logoff is very painful
