My current browser is Google Chrome, and I'm having no problems.

But when I switch to Firefox (which I prefer), I can't use ATS properly.

I can see the posts but can't see the avatars and can't post.

The 'myATS' button doesn't work, it keeps bringing up 'forums'.

If I try to access my profile, I just get "Error. No member specified."

Yet it allows me to see my list of posts and threads.

I'm logged in but can't log out.

What gives?

I'm running Firefox just fine. What OS are you using and which version of Firefox? Try clearing your cache, that might help.

Link on how to do this: support.mozilla.org...

You should use Opera. That's what I use, don't have to worry about Google monitoring everything you view on the internet as well as the weird bugs that firefox seems to generate.

Update your java and flash plug-in(not active-x).

Clear your cache, as suggested.

Check any add-ons you are using.

I run Firefox on ATS, almost exclusively at this point.

Also, run a good junkware program, such as "ADWCleaner". You can get it here Save to desktop>right-click>run as administrator.

I had that problem once, but can't remember how i rectified it. Fairly sure i cleared the cache, which resulted in everything being fixed up...

Good luck

Those all sound like how ATS works when you aren't logged in. Silly question, but are you sure that you're logged in with Firefox? Being logged in with Chrome doesn't log you in with a different browser.

Okay, I've deleted the cache - no joy.

Would uninstalling then reinstalling Firefox help?

Okay, not sure if this may be the problem, couple of weeks ago I downloaded mozzilla from the official site, somehow when I clicked on the address bar a dropdown page appeared for add-ons, the list had bing, google, some other stuff but I declined and moved on, somehow I picked up malware called conduit, it is a virus, I know because I spent last four days trying to get rid of it. It is a search engine browser hacker, it has been hacking IE, Google Chrome, Mozzilla but predominantly Mozzilla, it sends pages elsewhere, and redirects files and info. You may not have it and it could be as others posters say, just not logged in properly. Check your address/url search bar after you search something/anything on your regular search bar on mozzilla, look in the address bar to see if it says conduit anywhere in there, if it does, post back here, i never installed the bugger and it actually made itself my default browser, blocked my windows security, and tried to stop me from entering my computer in safemode. Its a bad one! In the mean time, good luck.

There's no logical reason for this. ATS works perfectly well with Firefox (and in my case Waterfox, a 64-bit variant). It really does sound like you aren't logged in, but a real possibility is that an addon or extension is causing this. Start Firefox in safe mode, see if that fixes the problem, then reintroduce addons/extensions one by one.

Then again, if it works in Chrome, why worry? Just stick to that.

I'm logged in all right, in fact I can't log out!

BTW, Firefox works perfectly well on every other site, it's just ATS.

Hmm, i think you should uninstall/reinstall. That should most definitely fix your problem. When you do, just make sure you backup or record your bookmarks and add-ons.

Right.

I'm officially confused.

I deleted the cache - didn't work.

I uninstalled then reinstalled Firefox - didn't work.

I'm using IE right now, so that works.

I know GC works...and I suspect any browser works.

It's just MFF.

Why doesn't that work?

Well, i'm out of ideas, lol. I swear i had the same problem as you (on MFF as well), but the things you tried, actually worked for me...

Maybe you should send some messages to the mods/admins, if possible. See if they have any ideas?

Sorry i can't be of more help.

Daas.

Delete all cookies associated with ATS within your Firefox browser. I had this same exact issue last night and I just fixed it via cookie deletion.
