Firefox and IE..their making me crazy!
June 14, 2007 12:55pm CST
When I first became a member of mylot I only used IE. Now some months later I also have Firefox which I like so much better. My problem/question is why is it when I log onto mylot using IE I can't log in but if I use Firefox it takes me directly to the first page? Is it me or am I doing something wrong? As much as I like Firefox I think there's a lot I don't understand about it which doesn't surprise me at all. Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening?

LOL - I found a simple solution to remembering ids and passwords, I have 2 of each that I use for almost everything :) it really cuts down on having to remember too many - I too have the age problem :) tried writing them down at one time but then it was good luck finding them.

well i guess its a cookie problem. i don't get wat u mean by the first page. and abt IE well may be IE doesn't allow cookies to be set by mylot. if u r wondering wat is a cookie, it is a text file that allows the site to know your status. Your browser should allow the site to set cookies called session cookies.

Firefox is much advanced in cookie tracking. If you have left the mylot page without signining out it would keep you signed in the next time you start firefox and go to mylot. I suggest you clear all cookies from Firefox and IE both and disconnect the Internet, restart your PC then again connect open fresh browser of Firefox or IE. The problem will probably be solved.

I have no idea why this would be happening. I use Firefox and have never had a problem. I stopped using IE a couple of years back, because I always had problems signing in and out of different websites with it. I think Firefox is just better at keeping people signed into things than IE is all.

firefox is the best browser. it is friendly user, which means that it made people easy to use it. some of the advantages, is it can remember our id and passwords. IE also have that, its just you, who do not know how to set it..hehe. but i prefer modzilla firefox better that IE.. since it's more faster for surfing. but still, there is lots of sites, that still did not support firefox.. =) p/s..try use opera..
