OK, then my next guess, as good or bad as it may be, is some setting Bjoern has in Firefox neither you nor I have. I don't know what it might be, but here are a few things to maybe check:

 

Under Content:

 

1) Pop-ups blocked? I have that turned on, but have the Verizon URL as an Exception.

 

2) JavaScript enabled? I have it enabled.

 

Under Privacy:

 

1) Accept Cookies from Sites is checked.

 

Those are the only things I can think of. Anybody else got anything?

Just tested in Firefox a well, no issues here. Check the stuff Justin listed above, and also make sure your Java is updated.

This same thing happened to me earlier.  I finally got so frustrated with it that I moved on.

I also use FF with a community only ID and no problems logging in as well. It does occasionally give me trouble immediately after I've signed out, but a second try always works.

Dear Firefox user,

 

did you try clicking on tools, then options, after that you will see different tabs choose advanced, under advanced you will see

4 sub-tabs select network , under network click on settings and then under configuration select no proxy

 

good luck!

Your friend CB

 

by the way i'm using firefox right now

CRob - See my last post at the other link.  Have the same issues with FF 8.0 from a different computer.
