Very weird issue which I have experienced twice in the past few days. For an unknown reason, logging into a certain web service does not work with one browser, but does with another. Specifically:
- Case 1: phpMyAdmin - able to login using FireFox, not able to login using Chrome. The service is running on a local server, and I am trying to login from a client on the same network. At first I thought I had forgotten the MySQL credentials, but after resetting the root password for MySQL the problem still existed. However, when I tried another browser (Chrome), it suddenly worked. Still doesn't work in Firefox.
- Case 2: Google services - able to login using Chrome and IE, not able to login using Firefox. On a freshly installed computer, with both browsers just having been installed. This is even weirder. Firefox has not been used before, has no saved passwords or anything, but still can't login. Chrome does have stored credentials, but these belong to another account. IE doesn't have any stored information.
Does anyone have any idea how this is possible? Feel free to request more information.
