Unable to log in using Firefox, but works in Chrome and Safari (and new posts sometimes hidden)

Website Feedback

Has anybody else had this weird experience? If I try to log into Paizo's site using Chrome or Safari, it works, but if I use Firefox, attempting to log in puts me back to the home page without logging me in. I do not get any error message, and it happens even after I made sure all Javascript was unblocked. This used to work on Firefox just 2 days ago. (Edit: Operating system = MacOS High Sierra, if it makes a difference.)

Edit: Another weird bug: For 15 seconds after posting this, the thread appeared empty (like somehow the thread had been created but this post didn't exist). I have also noticed the same thing when posting to existing threads -- it comes and goes, sometimes with posting working normally, and sometimes with new (or occasionally even edited) posts not appearing for up to a minute. This problem seems to occur regardless of web browser.

Paizo did something in the last day or two. It requires you to clear your cache and cookies, sometimes three to five times (though I still can't get my phone to work) before you get a successful login.

You're on your own for your second complaint. That's been f#$#ed up for a long time now.

Paizo is crashing and burning as far as I can tell...

There was a short outage yesterday and I was unable to log in for a couple hours using *any* browser.

When the site came back up, I had to clear all my Paizo cookies from Firefox before I could log in again. Edge worked just fine automatically.

Thanks for the answers, I was just going to report that.

Thanks for the tips -- clearing cookies worked (posting this from Firefox).

I wish they would have announced that we need to clear cookies -- I could have sworn they did for something else they did a few months ago . . . (of course, why not just have the site eat obsolete cookies in the first place?).
