I've been using Suse 9.1 for about 2 months now and have never been able to log into Ebay or Hotmail. I connect to the internet through a router connected to a DSL modem. Any held would be awesome or if this has already been talked about and I just didn't find it a link would be greatly appreciated.
I am using Suse 9.1 with the Firefox browser version 1.0. I clean my cache daily and this is not just a problem with Firefox because the same thing happens with Mozilla and Konqueror. When i attempt to log in the browser gets about half way through the loading process and then just stops and waits indefinetly. This happens on Ebay when I try to log in and also with Hotmail. If you need more info just ask. I really appreciate the interest in helping me. Thanks
I also have to hit the Submit Reply button twice in order to actually submit. WHy is that?
you know it's the darndest thing. I downloaded the new Firefox, i was using the pre-release before, tried it fresh and it still didn't work. But...i cleared my cookies and cache, restarted the program, and BAM. Awesome!
Although, i still don't know what the problem was and after it worked the first time i have to try to login a couple times before it finally lets me. Oh well. I'm so thankful for all your help.
i just switched to mandrake and i had the same darn problem. So, i decided to get a bit more technical than just clearing my cookies and cache and found out that since i'm going through 2 routers or something i needed to change my MTU to 1492.
Here's how i did it
/etc/rc.d/rc.local file and put the following at the END of the file:
echo "Changing the MTU of ETH0"
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 mtu 1492
Replace "eth0" with the interface name that is the machine's upstream
connection which is connected to the Internet.
