Wordpress fails to recognise me logged in using Firefox

  1. I currently use Mozilla Firefox 17.0.1 to log into WordPress.com. This week I've been noticing that even though I've logged into my WordPress account it doesn't recognise me as being logged in. The add-on which I've installed for WordPress also doesn't recognise me being logged in and if I go to my homepage on the blog I run it doesn't show up with the WordPress bar across the top.

    I've tried all this using Internet Explorer 9 with no issues. Can anyone please help me out with this issue?

    The blog I need help with is gamingandtechnetwork.com.

  2. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.

  3. P.S. I'm using FF 17 and I'm not experiencing any issues at all.

  4. Thank you for the response, figured out it was the third party cookies being switched off which was the problem! New malware detection program switched it off so explains why I was having this issue.

    Happy holidays!
