Can't log in with Firefox

After the most recent Firefox upgrade I haven't been able to log in to Garden Web. IE and Chrome are fine.

When I try to click on the log in area, the pointer cursor doesn't acknowledge that there is link.

try going to the actual main page of Ivillage and log out then sign in there on that page not on the forum page, I have had that happen to me and logging in from that main front page works.

also before you do anything clear the cache in your firefox browser in case you have something in the cache causing problems. Tools>clear recent history > select cache from the list> on the top right select for time period everything ok

Thanks! Logging in from the main page worked great.

I use ccleaner about once a day so my cache is pretty clear. I wonder what happened during the Firefox update that caused it not to recognize the forum log ins?

It may be a coincidence, I have had it occur to me randomly, could be the same for you. I have no idea why it happens.

Just by chance the pointer created by the cookie either changed or timed out.

its a javascript link to me
javascript:document.location.href='http://www.gardenweb.com/auth/login.htm?'+(document.location.href)

might be a safety thing too
IE says page content has security errors.

Dee as you use Ccleaner quite often why not protect any cookies like iVillage or other places you visit often from being deleted? Open Ccleaner, click Options then Cookies and move any you wish to save from the left side to the right window and they are protected.

I get the warning also that the certificate is expired or has errors or something like that each time I go to any page here to log in, I have been just clicking on continue on anyway and log in.

I have found if I am logging in on a lot of different devices I will have to log in more often, I use my tablets, phone and pc regularly, at times I get the log in requirement on one, it also happens with other sites, my guess is their detection sees a new device or browser and want to make sure I really am who I say I am.

The certificate for the log in page has been expired for as long as I can remember.

How can I post and reply to topics in the bluebird forum?
I am obviously logged in but when I go there I see the message below. I even click log in, log in, and see the same thing after logging in...
