Problems logging in

Postby kaikow » Wed Apr 09, 2008 7:32 pm

A day or so ago, after much difficulty, I was able to log in.

Today, I wanted to reply to a posting.
Could not log in.

So, I tried the forgot passwor route.
Received a message that a NEW password would be sent to me.
As of a few minutes ago, I had not yet received the new password.

However, as you can see, I am now logged in, I used my original password.

Sumptin's amiss!

If one cannot log in, to what email address can problems be reported?

Are you sure you were typing in the password correctly? A missed capital letter can cause this problem. As far as who to contact, you can email Doc at dococ@motherboards.org or any of the moderators and we will pass on the message.

I was not typing.
Firefox saves the password, and I verified thgat Firefox has the correct password.

There's still the issue of my not receiving the email with a reset password. Of course, I would no longer want a reset as the old password works.

I finally got the message resetting the password.

However, using Firefox 2.0.11, I was NOT able to log in.


I then tried IE 6, no problem!

So, the board's html/javascript must not be playing nice with Firefox.

I'll get out of IE shortly, then try Firefox again.

I have no problems logging in with FF. Or IE.
In FF, click the 'history' tool tab. Down on the bottom, check 'show in sidebar' so you have all your browsing history. Look for older URL or cookie links for the site. Delete them. BTW.. you can stretch the sidebar for a full description. The search bar can be of use.

Quite likely, since the site changed its IP address, your Firewall may be blocking the site. Check the activity log for the Firewall.. and if the site is blocked, reset to 'fully trust'.

I do not save histories.
A firewall issye would affect IE and firfox as well.

Note that I am now logged in via firefox, yes, miracles do happen.
So th problem is not cookies or passwords.

However, I had a thought.

When I went to forum this time, I came in thru a link in a notification email message, but that still uses the same username/password entered by firefox.

If my bookmark were corrupt, would I not still end up at the same login page?

If not the going via a link in email is taking me to a different login page.

When I get a chance, I'll try to remenber to try going thru my bookmark.
And, if that fails, I'll immediately try using the link in the most recenyt notification message.
