    On one of three wp blogs, attempting to login thru FF just returns me to the login screen. The same happens with Chrome but I can log in fine with IE7,8 or 9. Site: http://www.savethecolors.com

    Disabled all plugins. Changed to default theme. Firebug says something about wordpress cookie so I deleted all cookies. Also authorized FF to accept cookies from this site. Firebug response: Failed to load source for: http://savethecolors.com/wp-login.php

    Any ideas why I can't log in through FF?

    Possibly a server config issue?

    All three sites are on the same server and have identical httaccess files. I think it has something to do with a wp cookie and I have cleared all cookies several time.

    I posted the header request and response for the site I cannot log into and for one I can here, http://pastebin.com/w5x0ZpNq

    This is not a serious problem (just irritating) as I can log it thru IE so I don't want to take up a lot of cycles.

    Thanks.

    I reloaded FF 3.6. I used the wp lost password function to send me a new password. I got logged in! Then I changed the pw back to my old and . . . I couldn't log on. So again, the lost password route but this time a totally new password and it worked. I can log in with no problem.

    Now I will upgrade FF to version 4 and hope it still works.

    Update: Upgrading to FF4 brings the problem back. The lost password routine will gets me logged in and the computer generated password is good for a couple of times but then same problem - log in just rolls back to log in screen. BTW, an incorrect password does as expected so you know when your password is correct as you don't get the "dance."

    Temporary work around: Go back to FF3.6 or use IE for logging in.
