I subscribe to a free site in France, which promotes holiday lettings, general information, tourist information, general chit chat and etc., just on Normandy.

The site is [urwww.choosenormandy.com[/url]

When I access it from Internet Explorer - no problem - log on - write in forums - the lot.

When I access it from Firefox, I can read various items BUT I can not see boxes like reply, new topic, quote and etc. So I can do nothing except read.

Other people are going straight in without a problen using FF - what may be wrong please, is it possible I have some securuty lock on my system or what ?

Regards

Although I'm not familiar with that particular site, what you're describing sounds a lot like not being logged in.

When you log in using IE, it very likely sets a cookie to keep track of you. You don't mention logging in again when you later go back there with Firefox. Chances are, Firefox will be looking only in its own cookies, not IE's, for your login. If it doesn't find one, you may find yourself being treated as a stranger by that site.

Assuming that cookies are enabled in your Firefox profile, what happens when you find the "log in" link for your site and click on it?

By the way, Firefox provides a "password manager" feature. You might want to
let it log you into that website semi-automatically after the first time.

Thank you for the assistance.
I logged on in Fire Fox, checked cookies are in for the site - yes - still can not write to the site via FF only if I log on with IE.

Could there be anything with my security system that may be blocking me - I thought not as that is surely in place whichever system I log on with - am I right on this point or not.

Someone said it might be the SKIN, but I am not at all computer literate and this means nothing to me.

Regards

Skeeg.

If I have FF and IE would I need to upgrade Java on the two sites or is Java just in the computer and used by either ?
Thank you for help

I am entering below 1st the version I see in FF and below a dotted line, the version I see in IE.

Is there anyone out there that could log in in both to www.choosenormandy.com and see if the same thing happens to them.

My computer directs me from emails straight into the site using FF, which I assume is set as my prefered access.

Sorry, but I know very little on computers, past switching on and off.

Does anyone have any contacts for D-Day / WWII re-enactor groups. I have come across several all dressed up invarious uniforms, driving jeeps and whatever.

My interest - part of my work involves GRP - Glass Fibre. We manufacture Full Submersion Baptisteries - SEE MORE ABOUT THAT SOON, IN MY SWIMING POOL INFORMATION NOTES. This has lead to a diverse selection of products in GRP.

BACK TO THE POINT

Last year at a Car Boot Sale near Omaha Beach, I bought a very rusty German Helmet. We have now taken a mould from it and are manufacturing the helmets in grey or black.

I am now selling them on ebay and have even had orders from Malta and Italy.

Apparently the real one's can be quite expensive. Ours sell from about £15.00p plus p&p.

By request we are now making Russian and British "Tommy" style helmets. I'm looking for a WWII American one to take a mould off next. Please let me know if you have one for sale.

For any home sick Brits, we also make full size Red Telephone Boxes.

Regards

JG

Dear Superpose,

Yes please , would like to buy the American Helmet. Can I collect Easter Week ?

Is it just the metal shell or does it have a liner and or straps ? This is not too important, just interested in what I'm getting.

Now what, can I post my email address on here or are you an advertiser anyway ?

Regards

John G

Hi John - it has a liner and a strap - although the helmet is same as WW2 I think the liner is from Korea era or Vietnam.

Yes no problem at all Easter... I'll pm you directions etc.

Your two copies do look different, though both seem to show you as a logged-in user. One thing I was wondering about, though: it sounds as if you don't log out with IE, then log in anew with Firefox. When you're logged in with IE but browsing with Firefox, could the site be somehow treating your Firefox presence as secondary to the IE one?

The site FAQ doesn't seem to address this issue directly but this option sounds as if it might be worth a try: What does the “Delete all board cookies” do?

As I picture it you'd delete everything that says you're already logged in, then log in afresh from Firefox and see if the site then considers that your official browser. If it does, you might then find your access reduced the same way when you browse with IE.

Have you tried the IE tab in FF? Are your friends using that tab? The only indication that the IE tab is being used to access the site is the IE icon in the lower right corner of the page (Just above the time.)

Some pages just don't render well in FF because the site developer didn't take FF into consideration. For instance, I've encountered sites where the login window wasn't even on the page.

When you install the IE Tab, you can switch between IE and FF by clicking on the IE/FF icon in the lower right corner to compare the two renderings.

Go here to read about and download the IE Tab option. Once installed, when you visit a page that doesn't render well in FF, click on "Tools," "IE Options," then "Add." The next time you visit the page, using FF, the page will open using the IE option. In other words, you never have to leave FF to view the page with IE.
