it wont let me log in to my tumblr and my email/password is correct, but it use to work about a week ago. how to i get firefox to work with tumblr?


I just downloaded firefox about a week ago and the first day i used it i went on to tumblr, and i logged in just fine. But now a week later i'm trying to log into my tumblr and it says it's loading but then it goes straight back to the log in page. I contacted tumblr support and they said to check if i have cookies, and i do. i'm very dissappointed that firefox won't work with tumblr.

solution doesn't work for me. i think those firefox developers are either ignorant, incompetent or simply uninterested in solving this problem which has been around at least since 2010 - we're now in 2012.

i've been loyal to firefox for 10+ years but now i gonna switch to chrome, which i have been using in parallel for a while now and which has not given me any headaches. firefox usage worldwide has been in decline since 2011 and i think this trend reflects the disconnect between the developers and their user base since the chrome-like decision was taken to go down the fast upgrade lane. google can pull that off successfully, firefox can't - sadly.
