ebay missing sign-in sign-out

  f1fan 19:52 01 Mar 2005

Have formatted and re-installed XP including SP2 onto my laptop. All websites work and look as they should except ebay. The fonts are different and then 'Hello sign in' is missing and if I sign in with the boxes there is no sign out.
Have tried the 'tools - options - fonts' and they are the same as on my other computer.

Any ideas??

Have you blocked third party cookies?? you seem to have a firewall problem.

  f1fan 20:56 01 Mar 2005

Have just changed settings to accept all cookies, SP2 firewall is off and norton internet security firewall is off.
The firewall I use is in my netgear router which my other computer uses and ebay is normal on that machine.
Restarted laptop and ebay is the same.

Any other ideas????

Are you getting the privacy icon showing on the toolbar?if so left click and see if Ebay is getting blocked.

Hi pk470,

No privacy icon showing when viewing an ebay page, have viewed the source code for the ebay page and thought it may be a java problem, but can play java games.

is it the "pop up blocker"

  f1fan 21:57 01 Mar 2005

Have just turned off pop up blocker, and still the same. Have tried mozilla firefox and is the same on that.

As you have now turned everything off, have you since cleared the cache?

  f1fan 19:39 02 Mar 2005

Hi feb,

Cleared cookies, deleted temporary internet files inc offline content and history, shut down - restarted and still the same.

Checked all 'advanced' options against my other (ok) computer and the only difference is on 'ok' computer a section says..
Java (Sun) tick Use JRE 1.5.0 for <applet>
where as on my laptop it says..
Microsoft VM,
tick Java console enabled
no tick Java logging enabled
tick JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled.

Did you import your fav's or type in the URL.
If you typed it in just make sure you have not made a 'Typo' which is then cached and re-displayed

ebay suffers a lot of scammers out there.
