Clear your browser cache and cookies, then tell us if it still doesn't work.

Problem remained after deleting browser cache and cookies.

I've had the same problem (and message) today; clearing the cache and cookies after every session seems to clear the problem. But, that's not ideal...

After every session? You should only have to do it one time.

Unfortunately I'm unable to upgrade my IE to v9 because of my business software which requires an older version. So I am personally unable to test this at the moment until I can use another computer with IE9.

Actually, I'm using IE8 under Win Xp, Sp3. I will very often just drop in (without logging in) to the forum to see what's been posted. If I try that, it only takes about two levels down and back to lock me out and require a shutdown of IE and a restart (I have it set up to clear after each session). This behavior seems to be new following the server work this past week...

I've tracked down the problem (or at least one of the problems). The situation should be much better now.

Please let me know whether or not the problem with IE you were seeing has been corrected.

Yes, I confirm that the site is now working fine with Internet Explorer 9.

Thanks Vash!

Awesome. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. The issue unfortunately wasn't actually browser specific, but had everything to do with the cookies themselves. And then it was only a problem with a few specific cookies generated under specific conditions on the forum.

It took me a while to track down what was going on in the server log files, but it should be good now. I'll keep an eye out for additional issues in the same area over the next week or so.

Problem has returned, as before O-F is down and OHM is up on IE9.

Disregard the previous message, It's all fine now.
