That likely means something between you and LQ is blocking cookies or otherwise munging data.

As it happens in both Linux and ms-windows, with and without a firewall, it has to be the Internet connection. That would explain some other problems I've had trying to do updates to Xp. When using this connection the microsoft update site fails to do the updates and returns an error message that there are connection problems. When I've tried it with a different connection it works. However, that connection is much slower and often isn't available. Odd since both connections are from the same ISP, but each uses a different router. Must be the hardware.

Incidentally, this has happened to me as well when I was on Firefox with no proxy. It happened three or four times after I logged in and tried to reply to a post. I would get redirected and have to log in again. The problem self-resolved as inexplicably as it started, and I just put it down to a site fluke. Internet connection makes sense though.
