Forum Login Failure
#1
Seem to have a problem logging in today with Firefox (#70) on Apple iMac starting this afternoon in spite of working perfectly for ages up to this morning.

At some point this afternoon the [LOGIN] and [REGISTER] buttons appeared at the top of the page and clicking login takes me to the usual login box (pre-filled by browser but I have also tried retyping)

Clicking on the Login button returns me to the forum still not logged in but with a message 

"Authorization code mismatch. Are you accessing this function correctly? Please go back and try again."

On this same computer, using Chrome browser and the same login credentials, login is perfect. 

Any idea what is going on here?

I had a similar issue in Chrome earlier in the year. Normal window I couldn't login, but if I opened an . Incognito window I could, or already was logged in. I was able to resolve it by clearing Chrome's cache.

Thank You tophneal - that did the trick albeit knocking out all my other logged in tabs.

I am now logged in again in Firefox Smile

Glad I could help! I honestly lived with it for months when it happened to me. I figured screw it, since it was only on my work PC, but I wanted to be prepared in case it happened on one of MY computers. lol
