    I can log into my self-hosted admin user id on Safari but not with Firefox. It does not even recognize my user id. I get the following error:

    ERROR: There is no user registered with that email address.

    I have cleared the cache the cache in Firefox before trying again to login. I spoke with my web hosting company, Bluehost, and they had the same problem.

    What do I do to solve this situation?

    Have you cleared the cookies in Firefox or reinstalled it?

    I thought the WordPress message was ERROR: Incorrect username or password.

    Do you get your error at the normal wp-admin log in?

    I have cleared my cookies.

    It is giving me ERROR: Incorrect username or password when I try to log in.
    It is giving me ERROR: There is no user registered with that email address when I tried to reset the password while in Firefox.

    Have you tried using Firefox on another computer?

    No. I only have my MacBook. Firefox loads fine and I can surf the web but I can login to WordPress.

    I use Firefox all of the time (as do many other people here), so this would seem to be a problem with your copy of Firefox rather than anything within WordPress. Have you removed all extensions?

    No, I will do that and see what happens.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
