Can't Post in "Answers" Answered

Browser: Firefox
Location: Answers sub-forum
Bug: Logins don't "take" on the Answers forum. It accepts the credentials but doesn't actually login. This is an issue across the site but everywhere else refreshing solves it. Even getting logged in elsewhere and then navigating back to the Answers forum does not work although if I leave again for another part of the site I'm still logged in there. Others are posting answers so clearly this is only effecting a subset of the user base, or just me.

Hi from Tübingen University, BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG,DE...

I am trying to SUBMIT A BUG REPORT...
Not about TICKS (insects) which are a plague here ( The "most dangerous
life-form in Germany" , & this area is the Ground-Zero ).

I have been trying to comment on the " Free Heat! Its Everywhere " page ( FIRST PAGE ). ( https://www.instructables.com/id/Free-Heat-from-Tum... )

It is NOT POSSIBLE even though i am logged-in.

I keep getting the LOG-IN FRAME.

I have tried the COMMENT FRAME & the INDIVIDUAL REPLY FRAME

Even though i RE-SUBMIT my LOG-IN INFORMATION it is still NOT POSSIBLE.

I have tried APPLYING for a NEW PASSWORD, but still NO SUCCESS.

COMPUTER SYSTEM :- I am using an ORACLE SOLARIS .... THIN CLIENT

BROWSER :- FIREFOX 28.0

I am an UBUNTU LINUX PROFI .

I think you should use LESS or NO FRAMES( if possible ). Plus make INSTRUCTABLES SIMPLER.

Also the WORD PROCESSOR is a headache.I CANNOT COPY THIS

Many thanks and please continue. INSTRUCTABLES is one of my MOST FAVOURITE SITES.

Yours, Dhan Hurley ( Irish, poor and a non-drinker...LOL )
