I don't know if this is a problem with firefox or a problem with the website. IE Works, firefox 3.6.13 fails. firefox 3.6.12 works.

in the site: http://www.opm.gov/e-qip/browser-check.asp?check

It checks the browser to ensure cookies are set. I've tested this on windows and linux ubuntu on 3 different systems and it consistently fails the cookie check, even though they are enabled on the browser.

Try to reload that page, that works for me. I'm not sure what goes wrong, it may be a cache or other timing issue.

reloading or clearing cache does not help. We are receiving complaints from users around the world.

IE works.

Is anyone experiencing this on other websites, or is it just us?

Works for me if I click the Enter e-QIP button on the http://www.opm.gov/e-qip/ page.

cor-el, thank you for your response. Could you please do me a favor and try going to https://www.e-qip.opm.gov/eqip-applicant/

and click the "enter eqip applicant site".

This and the URL you posted *should* go to the same destination but I am seeing different results on the cookie check.

Clicking the link on the https://www.e-qip.opm.gov/eqip-applicant site passes the Cookie test on Linux, but I do not see any cookies created or send using the Live HTTP headers extension.

I see a few redirections that end up in Location: http://www.opm.gov/e%2Dqip/
