FireFox and Slashdot

I guess Firefox and Slashdot are very poor companions!

First is this bug which I often face, while trying to submit a story or while commenting!

Invalid form key: Q9jRDo9JhK

Chances are, you're behind a firewall or proxy,
or clicked the Back button to accidentally reuse a form.
Please try again. If the problem persists, and all other options
have been tried, contact the site administrator."
I've mailed this to the Bill Cowboy as well.
This is not observed /encountered if using M$ ie.


And the next most irritating thing I am facing with FireFox + Slashdot is: My Login is not retained.

I login to slashdot and have customized light-weight outlook with reading only +5 comments. But I tend to lose the logged in account inconsistenly. Sometimes, just hitting the refresh button. sometimes while doing "Read More" in a new tab, times when trying to submit a story, times when commenting.

If this happened to you, would you not be irritated?
I thought it was some cookie related, but set things right ( to accept all cookies and retain cookies from parent site) but nothing worked!

Has anyone else faced the same problem? Am I alone in this world?

A related problem

As for the second problem , Trying to open Read more in a new tab doesnt lose the login information. My suspection is that a default page is thrown.

Doesnt saving the pasword in password manager help ?

Thanks for your response. While I am not figure the cause of the Invalid key problem. What I did was:

-Reset all my preferences to default.

-Under Password preference.Set the option My Login session lasts forever and follows me everywhere. Yo! the second problem was resolved. I am happy now :)
