I can't load ejournals (eg, JSTOR) and other sites my public library subscribes to. When I go to the resource, I get the message "Sorry, we were not able to authenticate you for access to this resource. Please adjust your Internet Security software to allow referring URLs." My default is to block third-party cookies; I tried allowing all cookies, and blocking cookies from hclib.org. The last option got me to a page where I enter a barcode, but then to the same message. I tried allowing pop-ups, but that didn't change anything. I've asked a librarian, who told me that I have to allow cookies and possibly pop-up windows, and said security software such as Norton, a firewall, or pop-up blockers could be the problem.
This is the same problem as http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/880202 , but with Firefox 3.6 on a Mac (I have the same problem with my other browser, Safari), and without Norton or any other security software that could be problematic as far as I know.
