Are you sure you cleared the cookies? This is the only report of this problem and it *is* a cookie problem. How did you delete them?

Actually, there have been multiple reports of this problem...but Rich is correct in that it is 'cookie' related.

Make certain that the 'cookies' you delete are from the new address "", not just the old address "www.thefiringline.com".

Click on the "preferences" link, and select "delete your cookies". Do so.

If you have more than one browser window open, close the extras. Leave TheFiringLine and go to another site. Return. See if the folders are now working.

If not, it's time for last ditch measures. Shut down your browser. Do a search on your system for cookies.txt and delete it. Empty your recycle bin, and restart your computer. Visit TFL again. It should be working now.

If you are using AOL, all bets are off, as their browsers are buggy at best. 99% of all UBB problems come from people on AOL.

Thanks much, Spark. I didn't even notice the "delete cookies" option in the preferences section.
