  • Cookie bug?

    Ok, I was browsing around my site like I do every day in firefox 3.6.3 All of a sudden, the site decides it doesn't want to load for firefox but the admin panel works fine?

    I say ok hmm.. what's going on... I check the admin cp and the cpu & ram are barely above 1 percent (they're usually at 0.3-0.4) View all processes shows the index using 1 percent. At this point I go into the admin cp & disable hooks. The index loads fine even though I know that I didn't make any recent changes...

    So I decide to check the site in google chrome with the hooks re enabled. The site loads just fine, nothing wrong but the firefox browser still wouldn't load.

    So finally after all of this, I go and clear the cookies for my site:
    *Right click ----> view page info
    *Click security
    *View cookies --> from there I clear all the cookies for the related site.

    FINALLY firefox decides that it wants to load it and I no longer have any issues... any idea on what could have been the cause of this???

    I'm using vbulletin 3.8.5 with these mods installed incase anyone recognizes a mod that is known for giving cookie problems.

    There have been known issues about using Firefox 3.6.x and vBulletin (see -- and it's a FF problem, not one with vBulletin). I've had problems where I can load the ACP and not the forum, but that was generally due to having installed a vBulletin update incorrectly or not having done something that the update required.

    You've got the added fun of a lot of add-ons that might just not like Firefox. Or it could have been coincidence.

    My question would be, "Has this happened again?" That is, "Can you make the problem happen again?"

    For what it's worth, I've got this one website I use that is fairly crashtastic in Opera (and is missing some features), better in Safari (and is missing features), even better in Firefox (but often times out), even better in Chrome (but still times out), and most stable in IE 8 (though it still crashes 10+ times a day).
