I just ran into an odd issue and I am using Opera to create this post:

I can log into the forum, but when I post, it asks for my username and password repeatedly to the point it says I tried 5 times and cant try again in 15 min. I logged in using Opera (and did not wait 15 min) and I got right into being able to post.

I tried restarting FF3 but it does the same thing.

I had this happen a week ago. Its really random. When it happened I usually just logged in from the home page before coming into a sub forum and it worked ok. It was when loggin in from a specific thread or sub forum page that I usually ran into that problem...

okay, thanks... Since I am replying now... let's see what happens:-)

Edit: now it isn't being "fussy." I have rebooted since I had the issue.

Try clearing your cache, apparently that fixes everything in FF..
