I am novice to Ubuntu10.10. I am unable to login to the Orkut using firefox 3.6.13 under Ubuntu 10.10. I can login to orkut with same credentials on Windows XP. I guess the problem might be with Java. I have already installed the java plug in. When I type about: Plugins in url, I can see Java(TM) Plug0in 1.6.0_22. I have also installed JDK and other available stuff from canonical partners.
Also I faced the similar problem for registering to https://launchpad.net/+login site using firefox 3.6.13 under ubuntu 10.10. I do not see continue button when I try from Ubuntu Firefox.
Please take a look and advise some direction.

Thanks cor-el for taking time to investigate and reply. Sorry for the delay on my part, I tried the suggestions you made but it did not help.
Actually the problem turnout with the firewall . I just disabled some firewall settings and was able to login again. I will investigate further to understand how to configure firewall properly to white list some sites.
