Hi Falkyrn

Sorry about the delay in replying - had to go out  ::)

The Firefox version I'm using appears to be 1.0.7 - I only downloaded it 2 or 3 months ago - should I be on another version?

This is what I have for cookies and cache -

Hi Falkyrn

Sorry about the big spaces - forgot to crop the image....

Also forgot to say I'm running this particular machine behind a hardware firewall.  I can't really see that this would affect Firefox more than IE?

Thanks for your input - I really appreciate this  :)

Just for info,

RootsChat logged me out while I was still on line sometime in the past half hour and I've had to go through the process again (delete the cookie, start up IE, log in Rootschat, close IE, open up firefox and I'm back)   ::)

This is driving me nuts.....

Hi Trystan,

Sorry about the delay - I was doing the bathroom tiling. Left myself logged on though and was still logged on when I came back.

I tried the link and have appear to have both entries as per the example.....

Curiouser and curiouser....

.... Its not that I'm paranoid or anything but....
..............Does someone in RootsChat not like me?

(Only joking!)

Try updating Firefox ... the latest version is 1.5 .... the screen shots were from that version.

Right!

Now I'm on Firefox 1.5 but the options look just the same as they did before, except that they're on tabs instead of a list.

I think the pretty screens you had, Falkyrn, must just be for XP. Anyway, I'm just waiting for my session to disappear again and it could take anything from a few hours to a few weeks judging by recent experience.

Ho hum.....

I wish I understood this....

Possibly or possibly the interface theme I added from the downloads .... much better looking than the standard one.

It's strange that IE is picking up the cookie but not firefox .. please keep us updated.

Hi Falkyrn

That's what puzzles me too - I much prefer Firefox to IE and it's worked really well everywhere. This is the only problem I've found and it doesn't make sense at all.....

If you can cope with the tediousness of all this (my goodness, you are patient  ::) ) I will definitely keep you posted.

I have a feeling this problem is awfully like watching paint dry.....

Thanks so much for not leaving me alone with it!
