    I can not login to vbulletin forums from firefox! I just logged into BHW from chrome. When I try to login to forums from firefox, it says "you logged in, welcome etc" and then redirects me to the home page of the forum but it doesn't login. Then I refresh the page and it's still the same. What's the problem of firefox? If it is a cookie problem, how can I solve it?

    Yep, seems like cookie problem.
    Clear your cookies and cache and then try again.
    Update your mozilla with the latest version.
    It happens with me sometime too but it will be fine.

    Yes man. But firefox has that problem also: I can't save my settings, when I click the save some things will be the same as previous settings.

    Just realized: I can't login to forums from any browser except google chrome.

    What the hell...

    Next step: scan your computer for the usual bad stuff - viruses and malware.

    Is your browser running a private session mode? If so, disable it.

    Try both.
    If that don't work, uninstall firefox and all of its user data and reinstall it.
    If you doubt your PC is under any virus or malware attack then I think you should format and boot your PC and start fresh.

    I still use firefox a lot too and had that same problem the other day. I would enter username and password, it would look like it was logging me in, but then would end up on home page again and not be logged in. I tried it a few times and kept being the same thing.

    But then just for the hell of it, even though I wasn't logged in I decided to just look at the regular forums and deal with the problem later. I clicked on the forums link and when it went to the next page it showed me as logged in.

    I think it might just be just a glitch where it leaves you on the home page looking like you aren't logged in, but you really are. So you might try logging in again with firefox and then even though it looks like you aren't logged in, try navigating the forum and you might find that you actually are logged in.

    I used to have same problem as yours. But mine is a different problem now, I'm trying to refresh home page, navigating pages of the forum but it doesn't work. I just realized I have this new problem on almost all browsers except google chrome. Now I will try to clean cookies with CCleaner.

    CCleaner didn't work.

    Tried installing firefox again and it didn't work too.

    =@ What an annoying issue.

    Firefox would do this if you've installed Noscript Addon but blocked it from loading scripts on BHW/CDN.BHW.

    What makes it look like an affiliate link? I do way more business on and off the forum to be
    piddling around with affiliate links. ;)

    Ccleaner is well known and here is the download link to the free version which is hard to find
    from that link.

    PS: I just noticed the address bar had ID= and then some numbers.

    Maybe this is from another site I grabbed the link or who knows. I edited it though. LOL I don't feel like
    making someone else money.

    No probs Mate, I have made the same mistake before too. What's worse is, I actually bought products under another Guy's link instead of my own!
