I know there have been issues with the latest FF versions showing 404 pages or causing other site issues.
Well, I got a 404 with a cow (nothing unusual about the cow - seen it before).

But I searched this forum and evidently I'm the only one who can't log in to Craigslist.
So far that's the only site I recall having trouble with. Obviously I'm logged in here, and I can get into eBay and my Gmail accounts.

It was enough to make me downgrade from v56 to 54.0.1 last week.
Then today I decided to try 56.0.1 and am having the same problem.
I thought perhaps it was caused by the Privacy Settings or Random Agent Spoofer extensions, but after disabling them there was no change.

It's NOT the password - I use 1Password and it enters the same one in Safari and Chrome.
And FF isn't auto-filling the wrong one - it's disabled and there are no saved passwords.

Clear the browser cache and delete any cookies relating to the site(s) involved.

For Mac, cache clear is Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network. Cookies are at Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Show Cookies.

Oh please Dan, give me a little credit.

I wish it were that easy.

Done and done many times.
I have the Empty Cache extension in the toolbar and I use a cookie manager.

It's obviously caused by the new version because when I reverted last week it worked fine.

OK. I don't see, though, that you've tried Safe Mode yet. Have you? (It's an unlikely "fix" but costs nothing to try.)

Alright, you caught me there.
I meant to try that last night, then got busy & forgot.


\:D/ SUCCESSFUL LOGIN IN SAFE MODE! \:D/


But it looks like it's gonna be a stubborn B to diagnose. #-o
Upon reopening FF, I was still logged in and reposted an ad. Then I logged out and got cowed on next login attempt.

So I disabled a bunch of extensions and was able to log in. Then I enabled them one-by-one as I logged out, enabled one, refreshed page then tried to log in.
And after re-enabling ALL of them I'm still able to log in.

So I re-opened FF and am STILL able to log in.
But there was a message and link displayed at the top of the Craigslist page:

I'm using FF 56.0.2, what more does it want? Never seen that before.
It only happened once, so...whatever.

I'm currently able to log out/in and post, even after re-opening FF a few times, so I hope it lasts, but hoping and wishing never got me far.


On a side not, does it make a difference in CPU usage to have 90+ tabs :crazyeyes: in one window vs split between 3 or 4 windows?
I want to stop using Chrome so I imported all the open tabs I had there so I can begin eliminating them.
I was using tab suspenders there, gotta look for such an ext. for FF now.

Okay, I'm seeing the "upgrade your browser" message again.
