I use Mozilla Firefox and can see the whole of this site but cannot Post on Forums (need to swap to IE). Do I need to download something to correct this problem?? Cheers, Ian

I am using Firefox 3.5.7 that seems to work ok., but I did have that trouble with an earlier version.

See if you can get it to update itself .. see, second last item in "Help" pull down.

Whilst I am an IE user I have the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari installed for testing purposes. I've never been able to replicate any login or posting issues when they have been raised by members.

With this in mind I can only recommend that:-

1. Members use only the latest versions of their preferred web browser; Internet Explorer v8.0, Firefox v3.6, Safari v4.0.

2. Make sure that your browser can accept cookies.

Vintage Radio doesn't run any Flash, Shockwave, Ajax or other similar technologies. All pages are ASP scripts that generate raw HTML with text fed from a database and is set up to work in all browsers. No browser add-ons are required regardless of one's browser of choice.

One thing to remember about Firefox in particular is that most earlier versions of it were Beta releases and thus loaded with bugs that still had to be ironed out by the developers of that software.

Marcc, Brad,

I was using Firefox 3.5.5. Updated to 3.6 and checked Cookies being accepted. Still have same problem.
A visual comparison of the IE and Firefox screens shows differences in the Members Sidebar -

in IE ----> my User ID appears with the words "Log out My Profile Members List"

in Firefox ---> the Username box and Password box etc and Log In button remain after I have logged on.

Is Firefox logging me on correctly???

Cheers,
Ian

Something is not right.

It may be corrupt... rip it out clean out all traces & reinstall from clean source.

Where did you get the original .. There are rogue versions of lots of things.

Run disk cleanup & make sure it is set to clean out cookies & internet temp files.

Download the freebie version of say Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org) & run that. It will update definitions if you tell it to....do it. Run a full scan & based on my warning, do not download it from anywhere else.

If you have an AV program, many out there are rogues. One hopes it came from a reliable source?

Glad it's working now. One thing I like to see is this website working for everyone. I think the previous problem related to cookies though as when a login is successful the login section should disappear altogether and be replaced by member-only links as you described.
