I hope I can either fix the problem or it goes away on its own. The spell-checking feature in FireFox is great since phpbb doesn't have that feature.

I run into those two alot. It is a misconception that they universally and automatically allow 'net access.
Fwiw, Norton can be worse than some virii when the subscription period lapses.
I carry the Norton removal tool on a thumdrive for the times when it has decided to go into lockdown.
ZA had me locked out of Ebay and a few other sites, once. I ended up wiping the harddrive, to get around the lockouts.

Neither program asked for access, but it is correctly configured in ZoneAlarm. Also, it isn't having any trouble accessing the Internet; it just doesn't want to log on to this forum. Others are okay. I am using FF now, but I'm sure it won't last.

I'm totally stumped. I was able to log on using Firefox only once or twice, but not in the last three days. Today, after rebooting, I'm able to get in with FF, but I'm sure it won't last.

I've tried resetting several options, but nothing helps. None of the other forums I visit are causing any trouble, so that makes it even more odd.

I'm running Norton AntiVirus only, with ZoneAlarm firewall. Neither are causing any problems, or I wouldn’t be able to access the Internet.

Oh well, . . .

Firefox 2.0 login problem

Okay computer people, I need some help. I just downloaded Firefox 2.0 and I can't log in. I also see a login field at the bottom of the page that doesn't appear in IE 6.

This is the first time I've used Firefox, so I'm sure I'm missing something simple, but I sure can't find it.

Any ideas?

Chas.
