Macintosh problems with the new Forum?

Post by topkick7 » Fri Jan 25, 2019 11:48 am

Is any body else having problems using a Macintosh on the new Forum?

I had to post this topic using an old PC.

I can't seem to get my 64 bit iMac Mojave to login or send administrator emails even if I delete cookies?

I can only view topics.

Thanks in advance :roll:

My 10.6.8 desktop has no trouble with it except that I have to log in every time I open the forum. But I think other folks are encountering that, so it may be the site and not the computer OS. I haven't tried it on the Macbook Pro laptop yet.

10.13.6 here. When I first began with the new Forum all was well. But within a few days I couldn't log in. This was using the Safari browser. But when I use Firefox, all is well. I have no idea whether this is a problem with my computer, or the Forum, or (as usual) the deficient user.

My 32 bit MacBook Air with 10.12.6 Sierra does not work either?

I had to re-login again to make this post on my old PC but that's already been reported.

Thanks for the replies. :oops:

Running iMac, iPad and iPhone 4. No problems whatsoever on any of them. Stays logged in if I choose.

I have had similar trouble. I was able to log on from my office computer (Microsoft) in early January but then somehow it stopped working (no error message, my logon attempt was simply ignored by MTFCA). My home computer (also Microsoft) worked fine the whole time. I just tried using Internet Explorer instead of Chrome and now I'm able to get on from my office.

I have 3 Macs at home, two are 32 bit and one is a 64 bit. All have the most recent operating system. I use Firefox as my browser. So far no problems, although I have not tried all the features like sending a PM.

I just posted a reply to another thread from my IMac (64 bit--I think) and I swear even though I hit the "submit" button it didn't show up. So now we'll see if this one works.

I had the same problem with my iPad. I tried the link offered in the thread near the top of this forum under ‘Weird login issues - Firefox’. That worked for me. No idea why.

Works OK on macOS Mojave 10.14.2 and Safari.
