    Could you please provide more details. Also, you may want to try posting on the official Firefox forum:

    For example..

    If you enter your password etc. at a forum, click "sign in" and the page does not change, or maybe left with a blank page.

    This typically means that your "cookies" are not enabled, or that they have become unreadable.


    To enable your cookies, determine which browser you are using (Internet Explorer 6.x, Netscape 7.x, Firefox 1.x, etc.).

    For Mozilla Firefox 1.0
    Click on "Tools" in the menu bar and select "Options..." from the drop-down menu.
    In the "Options" window, click on "Privacy" on the left.
    Click the plus (+) sign next to "Cookies" to expand the selection.
    Check the box next to "Enable cookies."
    Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the pop-up window.


    If problems persist, or your cookies were already turned on, delete those cookies that are unreadable. This will not affect any other cookies you may have.

    There was a crosssite cookie injection problem out there at one time..but you should have a current version of firefox which would have solved that problem.
