    by Big Red » Sun Feb 07, 2010 12:48 pm

    I installed Firefox on my laptop a few weeks ago
    its running Vista.

    today i am using it [normally use my PC] and can't seem to Log in.
    tried all sorts of things and can view all the threads except the new COW thread but can't reply.

    went back to Windows and all works ok.

    Yea - I have the same problem and have since switching to firefox about 10 months ago. Use firfox for most of my web browsing etc this forum and a couple of others. IE still does the trick for them.

    Interested to know as well if there is any fix.

    Have you tried clearing your cache? (Tools, Clear Recent History and making sure cache and cookies are selected)

    The other option is to delete/rename your user directory (you'll want to export your bookmarks before doing that), it's in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<random>.default\ where <username> is your username and <random> are just random letters.

    I've never had this issue myself, but it's a common place to start with this sort of thing.

    In Firefox,click on tools- IE Tab options- and add DSLR site to the list
    Than it will auto switch to IE rendering mode when you open the site and all will be well with the world

    It sounds like FF doesn't have permission to write cookies to the hard drive.

    Try running FF ias Administrator and see if you can log in then. To run as Administrator right click on the FF icon before starting it and select "Run as Administrator" from the pop-up menu.

    Do you have trouble logging into other sites?

    Aside from firefox, you can use other web browser like Google Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer.

    maybe a new operating system like OSX could help

    Been using Firefox exclusively since well before I joined this forum and have no problems. The issue is permissions or settings on your PC not Firefox as such.

    BTW FF 8.0 was released yesterday if you haven't already upgraded.

    Just to further the debate, I have been using FF for some time and recently did an auto upgrade to FF 8. Major problems as version 8 is not compatible with eXif viewer and a bunch of other plug-in's.
    Uninstalled version 8, downloaded version 7 and re-installed now everything works again.....

    Grrrrrr!!
