I did a look under here and then under Internet and Computers, but I'm not sure I have the correct answer I need.

Through IE, I'm able to log into here just fine. However, on Windows XP with Firefox Ver. 1.5.0.3, it won't let me log in with my password - and yes, it is the correct name and password, with caps sensitive in all the right places. What am I missing? I do note that my version seems to show under "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.3) Gecko/20060426 Firefox/1.5.0.3", whatever that means. Do I need something for this sucker to run on XP? Why just this site?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Try clearing your cache in Firefox. I've had this happen as well. I don't recall the exact fix.

Yep, that would do it. Wow - Firefox had cookies for my old AND current password. I bet that's what screwed it up. Thanks, Zed brothers! :)
