Cannot sign in/sign out using Firefox 3.5

    Question

  • Using Firefox 3.5.

    I click on the Sign Out link, and the screen comes back with the same Sign Out button.  I deleted all the cookies related to msdn, still no help.  Any ideas?

  • You can also delete the cookie, or just allow the cookie per session (but not be persistent).

  • This was asked before. At the time I asked why the poster wanted to sign out of the forums ? There was never an answer that I saw.

    You can always sign out in HotMail if you are using a Hotmail address. That works in Firefox.

  • I am not using a hotmail/live email address.  I use my work email as my Windows Sign In ID for MSDN postings.

    I went to http://home.live.com to sign out, which works, but then I come back to MSDN and it still asks me to sign out.

    The reason why I signed out in the first place was to check my other hotmail account, which is different from the one I use for MSDN.

    After I checked the email, I come back to MSDN logged in as my hotmail account, so I want to log out and use my MSDN account.  But I cannot sign out now.

    So I am actually typing this in Internet Explorer, which I really don't want.

  • Thanks, it works now.

    I did a cookie search for msdn in firefox, didn't work.  Then I did a cookie search for microsoft and deleted everything related to it.  Works now.

    It's ironic how this type of error happens in the MSDN forum.

  • Heh. A good cookie manager ought to help a lot.
