    I am trying to open a webpage that requires a login. I put in the wrong password and then got the message: 401 You are not authorized to review the requested page. I found my password but now when I try putting the address for this page, it is remembered that I went to the 401 You are not authorized... last time and sends me there each time rather than the actual web page. What can I do to get around this? Hope someone can help. Thanks.

    You may need to clear cookies for the site. While viewing the 401, use Tools > Page Info > Security tab > "View Cookies" and delete them. The site then should not remember that you were just there. Any luck?

    Thought you were on to it, but when I went to view cookies and delete there were none. I'm using Firefox by the way.
    Where's the internet cache?
    Thanks again.

    Pappy,

    In FF it's under Tools->Clear Recent History.
