Password problems
« on: September 24, 2006, 03:29:21 am »

I don't know where else to post this, so I'll post it here.

Something really weird is happening to me when I try to login. It won't accept my password even though I know it is correct. (I'm using the 'automatic' login feature of Seamonkey, so the password is not being mistyped.) I keep getting sent to the 'try again' screen, and then the 'request a new password' screen. Since I know the password is correct and is not being accepted, it seems unwise to try to change it. If it's getting mangled somewhere, an attempt to change could mangle it to something I don't know can't recover at all. Instead I just keep backing up and trying again. Eventually it does work. But it takes many tries. Usually half a dozen or so.

How to tell if something is fumbling in the login script, or elsewhere?

My guess is to clear cookies.

I had similar trouble at one point, it simply wouldn't accept my password. For me, it worked out, after typing it in manually a few times, it started working again. why it did so, I don't know.

Also, if your system clock is (way) off, a cookie may expire as it is issued.
