Okay, I did some searching for answers before deciding to ask my question - just to put that out there. Found a few things that seemed on the surface to be related but then, as I read the posts, determined they weren't. So I'm asking my own question:
I have several websites that I can not log on to in Firefox but CAN log onto perfectly fine in other browsers. (As a web designer, I have all the major browsers installed on my system.) For example, my Craig's List login page goes straight to their "404" page. My college Student Information System login goes straight to their "403 - Forbidden" page (note the difference in errors returned). A couple others, as well. NONE of these pages are bookmarked.
I tried to "power refresh" each page (Ctrl+F5). No dice. I tried deleting all my history and cookies. No dice. I tried deleting Firefox completely using iObit Uninstall (but did NOT delete my profile folder as I wasn't prepared to do that, yet) and then re-installing. No dice. I tried disabling ALL add-ons, plug-ins and extensions. No dice. I tried deleting the "cookies.sqlite" file (but did not find a "cookies.sqlite-journal" file as indicated in Troubleshooting). No dice.
So...before I delete my profile folder, shred Firefox completely from my computer and go for a brand new installation, any ideas? If not in my history or cookies folder - or in the cookies.sqlite file - than WHERE on my system are these pages being cached and WHY are they not allowing me to access them through Firefox?
Thanks for any help y'all can provide!
