This site doesn't like my Firefox!

If I try to log in whilst in Firefox...

I enter me email details as it requests.

I enter my password as it requests.

I click the 'Log In' button... and then it just sits there, sulking, with a caption of 'Please Wait'.

Is it me, my Firefox configuration or what?

My last contribution on the matter

For many years, on the 'old' site, I had an extremely long shortcut on my desktop which contained the pca site address, my email address, my password and the link to the 'helproom' (along with other bits of code in it). OK, in most other people's mind it is a storm in teacup - and I accept that its loss is not the end of life, the universe and everything. It's just that I miss it now.

Clicking on that 'special' shortcut took me straight into the forum with a logged in status... it did not rely on cookies or anything else and it just worked at any time. That was what I was trying to regain.

I also find it 'unusual' that Firefox (my, and many other people's preferred) browser will not allow me to log into the site and wondered if it was just me, some of us or all of us. That was all.

End of subject as far as I'm concerned.

I use the same system as Woolwell and it works fine with IE9, FF and Chrome (my default browser) using Win7. I don't have any trouble either using FF and Chrome in Ubuntu 11.04, which I now use more often for browsing than Win7 due to it's fast boot.

I don't mind logging back on but sometimes I forget to and add to a post only to find I have to sign in to post it.So of course if you sign in you lose what you have already typed. I am almost sure you had to be signed in before you could type in a reply on the old browser.
