Angry browser problem


this problem one day popped out of nowhere in my ubuntu 9.04 firefox browser that I could not submit my reply on any forums. So I changed my browser to epiphany and then to opera but all failed then I installed arora and it worked. I don't know what is the problem with other browsers I just cannot submit a reply on any forums

Entering a response into most boards requires you to be logged in. If you have your browser store the password information, chances are you have lost it.

In Firefox, look at the Security tab under Preferences. There is a Saved Password button. If you had them saved, are they still there?

yes I was logged and and the problem is that some browsers like chromium and arora are working perfectly but firefox,epiphany,opera do not work properly.They simply do nothing when I click on the submit button on any forum they just show the message (waiting to respond). I cannot understand what the problem is??

What if you clear the cookies and login again?

I'm wondering if this is some kind of a key mapping issue. Are you using a language other than English on the browsers? And what about the system it self? English, or another language?
