    I use FF for a long time now, even with 3.6 I had no problems until some time ago: In a number of cases, for some reason, my inputs (topic, replies) such as login to this board, or my internet banking username and passwords are not accepted anymore even though they are correct.

    I have no such problems with IE 8, which I use now (hopefully temporarily). I have uninstalled FF (not the personal settings) and reinstalled it, cleaned the cache, cookies, etc a number of times.

    What could be wrong?
    Regards,

    Jefferson,

    All my permissions are swithched on. I deleted the file places.sqlite which forces a rebuild of favicons in the Bookmarks Toolbar, which helped a little in that I now can login in my internet banking account or send this reply after only 2 tries instead of 4 or more.

    Still don't know what the real solution is. Maybe a full reinstall including profile? How to do it? (I have a Mozbackup of my profile that copiuld be used to reinstall bookmarks and addons).

    Regards, Teunis

    Before sending this reply I did a Ctrl+C so if it is not accepted right away I can easily retry. (I had to use it)

    To diagnose profile problems, you can try Firefox's safe mode, or creating a blank new profile in Firefox.

    SuMo: Safe Mode (be careful not to "reset" anything permanently), Managing profiles

    Thanks Jefferson.

    I tried safemode a couple of times: made no difference. So I'll try again with a complete uninstall incl profile/ The reinstall and a new profile from scratch as described in the links you send me.

    Thanks,

    but my problems have disappeared miraculously with version 3.6.2, just before I was going to give the other measures a try.

    Regards, Teunis
