Unable to log out

Recommended Posts

I recently installed Firefox 1.0. Both my wife and I have accounts here. Today I tried to log out so that I could log back in as her and when I click the logout link from the reporting page (http://www.spamcop.net/) It refreshes like it has done something, but it does not log me out.

I ended up having to run IE to report her spam.

Maybe it is a setting in Firefox, but I have looked and have not been able to determine the cause. The logout link works in IE, but not in this version of Firefox. I even closed and re-opened Firefox after clicking the link several times.

Any suggestions?

The login/logout issue deals with cookies ... I was a bit surprised at the default settings on FireFox 1.0 .. but you may want to take a close look at the cookie handling options.

Ok, when I switched to Firefox I let Firefox import all my cookies, settings, bookmarks and such from IE.

The cookie was set by IE and was not letting me log out.

I have resolved this issue by clearing all cookies and then logging back in using FireFox. Now when I click on logout, it works.

Users who switch may need to keep this issue in mind.

For other people considering migration from IE to FireFox, I'd suggest logging out in IE first.
