Problem with login

Post #1

Post by JohnPaul »

I just changed my web browser from Internet Explorer to Firefox. I cannot log in to the forum using Firefox. I have tried several times, changed my password, reregistered, etc., but nothing seems to work. Help! Is there something different about the Firefox browser? (I am using Internet Explorer to post this),

I'm able to login with Firefox. What happens when you try to login?

I tried replying to your message here using Firefox, but it did not work. I only saw the "Reply" option at the top of the message, but not the usual "Quote." When I submited my replay, I get the same screen to submit, over and over.

When I try to login using Firefox, I get the login screen, requesting user name, password, etc, but when I submit it, I get the same screen over and over, with no error message or explanation. I did manage to change my password using Firefox. I got an activation email for the new password. I am now using Internet Explorer for this message, and my old password still seems to work with it.

It means you're not logged in.

Try going here first:

When you login with the above link, what do you see?

I get a brief message saying I have used either an incorrect user name or incorrect password, then the ligin screen again. I tried both my old password and the new password which I recently received in the activation email. Neither worked. I am using Internet Explorer for this reply, which still works fine.

Firefox works fine for me.

Try uninstalling and re-loading Firefox.

It means you typed in an incorrect password. Also, passwords are never sent out via email, except when I manually set them (which is only when people request me to set their password).

Help! I still can't login, using either Internet Explorer or Firefox now. This is a "guest post"

Thanks. I got your email. When I login using the password you sent, it seems to work, but I still do not appear as logged in. I am using a guest post again.
