Log-ins disabled?

Posted

In the latest edition of FireFox 3, my ability to log-in or provided feedback to forums at various website (e.g. newspapers: WSJ, local) became disabled. Either the log-in/feedback buttons don't show or they don't work. I upgraded to FireFox 4, hoping that would solve the problem. It didn't. However, using Chrome, I don't encounter the problem. What has happened to my FireFox browser??

For example, this link (http://www.coloradoan.com/) is the home page of my local paper. The white area, just above the headline box, should contain my profile and picture information, but it's missing. If I use Chrome, it's there. What gives?
