BBPress + WordPress Integration Funkyness only on Firefox??!?

    OK, this is weird. Just weird.

    I’ve got WordPress MU running on <my domain>/worship/ (I’m building a site for a church). I’ve got BBPress running on <my domain>/forums/. I installed WordPress first then installed BBPress. Went though the BBPress set up & configured it to use the same cookie keys a WordPress. All is well.

    I downloaded & installed the bbPress Integration plugin for WordPress. Enabled it. It spit out a bunch (shown below) of stuff it told me to put into my wp-config.php file. Which I did.

    /**
    * These defines are required for the WordPress - bbPress cookie integration to work correctly
    */
    define( 'COOKIEHASH', 'blah blah blah' );
    define( 'COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.<my domain>' );
    define( 'SITECOOKIEPATH', '/' );
    define( 'COOKIEPATH', '/' );
    /**#@-*/

    Everything works fine in Safari on my Mac, but when I go to Firefox, WordPress shows me as not logged in. I click on the Login link & I’m brought to the login page. I enter my user name & password, check off Remember Me & hit Log in. And I’m brought back to the login page again, with no error messages.

    No matter how many times I try to log in, this keeps happening. And as I said, it doesn’t happen in Safari.

    Any ideas?

    It’s gotten weirder.

    I noticed on the public, hosted site that removing the lines from wp-config that the bbpress integration plugin told me to add cleared the problem in Firefox. So I tried to do that on my local machine. Now I can’t log into WordPress or BBPress.

    I’m confused & have no idea what to do. I can’t do anything with the local website using Firefox, which means I have to do my CSS tweaking on the hosted site. It’s easier & quicker to do it locally & upload a modified CSS file (or other files) to the host when I’m done.

    Help! Anybody got any ideas they can share as to how to clear this issue?

    Friendly bump.

    I know it’s summer & times are slow. I cannot use Firefox to view the local copy of my website when I am making changes. If I am using Firefox, I have to make my changes locally, upload them to the host, and then I can test the changes. This is a lot slower than doing everything locally — just from the increased number of steps.

    Thanks

    What version of FireFox?

    Have you dumped your cache and flushed your cookies?

    FF 3.5.1. Running on a recent MacBook with OS X 10.5.7.

    I deleted all of the cookies in Firefox & cleared the cache. No difference in behavior.

    The hosted site is definitely working right. Could it be some kind of rights issue on the local files?
