Mtsanjacinto.info doesn't work with Firefox?

Postby phydeux » Mon Oct 19, 2015 6:19 pm

I use Firefox for most of my web browsing. This is the only website that doesn't work with it. I can view the BB, but I can't log in or post messages. Is there any trick to doing it?

Apologies if this has already been covered, but I couldn't find anything on it when using the 'search' function.

Have you tried different settings and checked your add-ons? I'm using Firefox right now. It does require cookies to login, but the cookies are not used on other web sites.

I use Firefox as well and the forum has always worked fine for me until maybe a month ago. The forum still works and i can post, etc, but it won't keep me logged in. Every time i come to the forums, even after a few minutes, i have to re-enter my logon info though i have the keep me logged in option selected. I figured it was just something on my end so didn't mention it. Has anyone else had this issue?

Yep. Exact same problem as Florian. Firefox login issues for the past month or so. I tried deleting cookies, then re-enabling them, I removed my add-ons, but nothing worked. So I log in each time. As long as my browser session is active I stay logged in, but once I exit Firefox completely it forgets that I want to stay logged in. The stay-logged-in checkbox seems to uncheck itself each time.

Me too. I had to log in to reply just now. Other than that it's working fine.

When in Firefox the MSJ-BB seems to 'time out" after a few minutes; not unusual for a BB to do that (thought that was part of the upgrade a little while back). But now it won't even let me log in when Firefox is running. I can log in using IE, bverything else I look at works great with Firefox, the MSJ-BB is the only thing that has problems even after fiddling around with cookie and browser settings.

I'll update the software this weekend and see if that helps...

Well it's a lot more involved than I was expecting.

I haven't been feeling well the past few days, and if I make a mistake the board will stop working. I'll have to update it another time when I'm feeling better and able to focus on all the details.

Seems might be an issue with Firefox 40.0. I work part time at the PS Art Museum and hadn't been in for a month or so. Today i launched Firefox 39.0 on my work machine and found that i was still logged into the forums from months ago. Then Firefox updated to 40.0 and now it won't retain my forum logon. So the 40.0 update seems to be what broke the persistent forum login.
