PM/Email olle. You might want to PM doc too. Us mods don't really have any power to fix this, many of us including me had your same problem. Although it seems like for most people it is working fine.

Clear your cookies? That's what finally fixed it for me. Also, make sure you're running the latest version.

Have you (a) if you are using a "Favourite" link have you deleted and re-added it from new? Or (b) as a last resort, you could try reinstalling your browser.

Im not using a bookmark or anything. Reinstalling FF isn't a big deal so I will try that. I've patched it multiple times, so I figured that would solve the problem if anything.

The 'cookies' which are URL links in FF are found from the top tool bar, "Bookmarks/Organize Bookmarks". You can spread the page over the entire screen, and select which URL links you wish to delete or move about or rename. Just delete the URL link for the site you have problems with, and revisit.. for a new 'cookie'. Don't forget to check the "properties" of the link for the URL address to copy and paste in the browser bar to revisit!
Pull down the FF "Help" window then "Help Contents", and drop down to "Managing Cookies" for an explanation of how to work them.

And.. you may have to check the Firewall program(s) to ensure the site is 'fully trusted'.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

Just an update. Built a new rig, installed FF version 2.0.0.11 and no problems with the site anymore! Heh, guess all it takes is a fresh install of Windows (joking).

Maybe I'll be able to visit the forum normally once I build a new computer sometimes in the next 2 years :roll:

As a side note, shouldn't this site, www.motherboards.org and its' components, contain content that DOES NOT TRIGGER alerts, warnings and preventive measures from Web-browsing, Firewall, and/or Anti-Virus software??!!??
I tried using a "Point of View Gun", but my aim was lousy. ;-)

It's not just FireFox that gets tripped up by this website.
There have been problems with accessing and staying logged on to this site by various forum members, using various web-browsers, in the past.

This happened to me recently.
