Support » Fixing WordPress » Protected page not accessible with Firefox

  • Resolved basvanrijn


    Hi There,
    I tried to protect a page. Works like a charm with Safari (mac), but with Firefox, I cannot seem to access the page. It just reloads the password form. I looked at the code and everything seems fine.
    Does anybody have solution or encountered this?

    I checked password protected pages with Firefox 9 in Ubuntu 11.10 and it works fine.

    The only strange thing I noticed is that if two different pages are password protected with same password, then a user is shown the second page automatically if he had stored that password in the browser.



    Thanks for checking!
    Could you try this?
    -> Removed link, page is offline now!

    With me (FF 9 on a mac) it does not work. In safari it does. Even tried the default theme, but then it also does not work…

    Thanks again,



    password = oo
    for testing purposes



    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.



    Found it! I disabled cookies in Firefox. Enabling them fixed the issue. The protection uses cookies!

    Thanks everybody for helping out.
