After the new patch, all the people using the board I am a co-admin of, cannot login using Firefox. How can this be fixed? Can log in using Internet Explorer, but I don't want to use it, if it can be helped.

Use Internet Explorer or Netscape (If u have it. I do)

I can login in my forum using Firefox.

Make sure your browser accepts all cookies the board throws at you.
If they are not enabled. You will get problems.
Also you could try to delete the cache and clear your cookies.

If those wont help. Do the dance. ;)
Download Auto Cookies MOD

then, unzip it to your computer,

then upload the included install folder, to your phpbb folder on the server.,

then , in your browser, go to:

then click the button to accept the settings it finds.

then delete the install folder.

Then you and all your members MUST do the cookie dance:

step 1. log out
step 2. clear your browser cookie
step 3. clear your browser cache/temporary internet files
step 4. close your browser
step 5. go back and test
step 6. hold one foot in the air and spin around three time
singing "Do the Cookie Dance, yeah, yeah, yeah."

I can log on after clearing catche and cookies. Once. then it won't allow me to log on again.
I'm hesitating to install that Cookies Mod, what does it do?

On the issue of Firefox, anyone have the problem where you go to delete a user and click the SUBMIT button and it wants to change your cookie password for the site?

I haven't encountered that problem yet, but I haven't deleted any accounts recently either.
