    I am having a problem signing in to some forums while I am using IE8. When I input my user name and password, it says 'Welcome Alicez" and then I am returned to the sing-in page again.

    However, when I perform the same thing on Mozilla, I get taken to the site right away.

    Would anyone know why I am not being allowed to enter these forums with IE 8?

    Please advise and thank you.

    IE 8 is known to have some problems with vBulletin (The CMS used for Forums). See if you can re-install IE8 and apply the patches available for it and try again.

    BTW, before you dismiss give Google Chrome a try. It's the best browser I have ever used.

    I always use Chrome to surf website, and something will go wrong in IE8

    i have not used IE since I installed Firefox more than 6 years ago. Firefox is the very best for everything.

    Make sure you're not blocking cookies in Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Privacy > Advanced.

    Keep Settings to Medium.

    If still no luck, try resetting IE8:
