    I run gentoo linux and I have a ton of browsers installed. all of them work wonderfuly except firefox. I can't get past the log in screen in firefox. This is wierd because It used to work just fine.

    I have removed all my cookies and such and I also except all cookies.

    I really miss using firefox so please help me out.

    does anyone have a any ideas?

    I use firefox and mine is set to allow cookies.

    Otherwise I wont be able to log in.

    what about 'allow for originating web site only' ?

    I have that on.

    Do you you see any error messages or just a blank screen?

    well I tryed the 'allow form originating web site only' with no luck

    the log in screen just sits and says 'waiting for xxxxxxx.org' down in the status bar.

    it seems strange. this all works fine with any other browser even other gecko based browsers.

    I got in but in a weird way.

    generally the url to the log in screen is


    this leads to the breaking of the system.

    I tried


    and got redirected to


    this gave me a log in screen and when I enter all the info and press enter
    I get logged ino the system.

    so what do you think now?

    Hmmm. 'waiting for site'. if its only one browser, could your cache for that one browser be full ? Sort of guessing in the dark there.

    I have the browsers on my home computer set rather large, around 100 megs.
