Can't connect via Bookmark

I tried to connect to a site I previously bookmarked and have connected to many times. When I tried yesterday it couldn't connect. A message on my screen said that it might be because Firefox was blocking cookies. I checked and it isn't. When I type the address manually into the address bar it connects without a problem. I deleted the old bookmark and set up a new one after I connected. When I navigate away from the page, I still can't connect with the new bookmark.

I CAN connect if I type the address in manually. I just CAN'T connect through the bookmark. I'm not at that computer now (it's at home and I'm at work). I'll try what you suggested and let you know what I see if it doesn't work.

Redo the bookmark but if your saving it after login that could be a cookie login issue that's why it doesn't work.

You can't bookmark all pages, especially pages that are generated via JavaScript or otherwise by sending special form data can have issues. In such a case you need to start with the main page and browse to the desired page.

This page was already bookmarked and I've used the bookmark to connect to it many times. It just stopped working.
