    Firefox auto updated to 3.0.17 prior to the update I had been able to log in to Comcast.net to check my Email. Now when I enter user name and password it just goes back to the Comast.net page and doesn't recognize that I tried to log in. Other sites that require passwords are doing similar things. I switched over to ie and am able to log in to sites with out an issue.

    HAS anyone experienced this problem? Is there a fix? I ran a virus scan and it came up blank. I am running XP.

    I have the same version of Firefox and have no trouble with it.

    You can ask your question from your browser from Help > Help Contents:

    For example, you could try installing a previous version, like the one you had before. Here is the link for this:
    http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb...ox?bl=n&s=install previous version of firefox

    There could also be an issue with the installation process for 3.0.17.

    BTW I advise disabling auto update. Tools > Options > Advanced > Update > When updates to Firefox are found: check Ask me what I want to do.
