    Google Chrome login OK, but Mozilla Firefox login doesn't take -- Any Suggestions?

    I recently switched browsers. I used to use Google Chrome for my main computing window, usually open with with many tabs, and Mozilla Firefox for my single-tab streaming video window (Hulu, Netflix, etc.) on my left monitor.

    The problem arose when the per-tab resources under Chrome became too much for my system to handle without significant slowdowns. Similarly, and probably because Chrome is a per-tab resource hog, the single-tab Firefox window through which I streamed video was starting to jitter.

    I did some research and discovered two things:

    1. With just one tab up, Chrome's performance for nearly everything, including streaming video, is much faster than that of Firefox.

    2. Firefox handles having many tabs in a significantly more efficient manner than Chrome.

    So, I switched browsers. I'm now using Chrome for streaming video and Firefox for surfing the 'Net. Result: Memory use remains the same, but still well below my 8 GB max of system memory. However, CPU use has dropped from 68% to 43%. That's a 36.8% reduction in processor load, with a corresponding uptick in overall system responsiveness.

    No more video jitters.

    The only problem: Defensive Carry isn't allowing me to log in under Firefox. I do get the, "Thank you for logging in, since9," then the next screen shows I'm not logged in and carries the following Notice: "ATTENTION: If you are having trouble logging in, you can reset your password here. If you are unable to reset your password, contact us."

    It's obviously not a password issue. Tried it three times. No-go all three times. Obviously, it's the same password I use when logging in under Chrome, on the same computer, keyboard and operating system.

    I checked logins into my own vBulletin message forum (ver 4.2.2) on both browsers with no issues.

    Is there something running on DefensiveCarry.com that prohibits logins from Mozilla Firefox?

    Computer: HP
    Model: Envy
    Proc: Intel i5
    Ram: 8 GB (less than 6 is being used)
    SSD: 1 TB Samsung, 300 GB free
    OS: Windows 10 with latest update

    Browser: Mozilla Firefox
    Build: 69.0.1 (64-bit)
    Release: Sept 18, 2019

    Any ideas on why DefensiveCarry.com won't load on Firefox?

    Any suggestions for a fix?

    That was weird... Before getting out of Firefox, I clicked on an interesting link, and NOW DefensiveCarry.com says I'm logged in.

    Ok, nevermind...

    I'm using Firefox 69.0.1 on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 with no problems. Been using Firefox exclusively for a few years now. Occasionally I have to wipe out cookies and browsing history but that's the only real issue I have. I usually have more than 15 tabs open when using Firefox (I have 32 GB of memory on this PC). No problem logging into defensivecarry but I do get some kind of message about tokens from time to time - closing and reopening Firefox fixes that issue.
