I can't log in using Konqueror 3.4.3

Whenever I try it just sends me loops over with the warning that the data will be resubmitted... over and over again.

Yeah, it doesn't hurt to have Firefox as well, but let's not make Firefox the IE of Linux, eh?

I've been using Konqueror with this site since before it was launched, which would have been around Konqueror 3.4.1 or 3.4.2 (I never used 3.4.3). There were some speed issues very early on, but never a login problem. Unless this is something peculiar to 3.4.3, which is highly unlikely as no one else has reported it, I suspect the problem lies either i your Konqueror config or some weird proxy behaviour at your ISP.

Try creating a new user in KDE then using Konqueror as that user to log in. This will have the effect of resetting everything to the defaults.

FWIW I'm posting this from Konqueror 3.4.3, no probs at all, so looks like it's your settings.

I had this problem a couple of months ago. It's because you're not accepting cookies from the site. Fix that and all will be well, I'll wager.

That's not the problem at all, Konqueror is set to accept cookies, the only setting I can change is to accept cookies only from the originating server.

I changed that and set my cookie policy to "ask" only difference was it asked me to accept 2 cookies from advertsiing.com. I accepted the cookies and still get the looping problem.

EDIT: right, turns out if I leave the site and come back again or manually type in the homepage I'm logged in and able to post under Konq. A minor niggle but still something I don't have to do under Firefox Razz I think it might be worth fixing, but you may disagree Very Happy

It is worth fixing, but the problem apparently lies at your end, as no one else is experiencing this. I still think you should try with a new user, so KDE is running everything at the default settings.
