Description of problem: On my (corporate standard issue) Winders laptop (WinXP)
I'm at least trying to use Firefox.  When I access the bugzilla website, I have
to enter my username/password to get to the "next screen" at least 50% of the
time.  I've overheard another colleague say "even IE works better on this site".

Is there something I can/should check for my cookies or something?  Why do I
need to continually re-enter username/password data?

I don't have any issues with using Firefox. Do you have this issue with other
bugzilla's as well, or is this simply an issue you encounter with Red Hat's
bugzilla? Have you tried https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/? If it's a general
problem, you should file a bug against Firefox
(http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/bugs). In case you only have this
problem with Red Hat's bugzilla, please feel free to reopen this bug, with some
more detailed information on your Firefox version and your cookie settings.

My problem _is_ only with Red Hat's bugzilla site.  I have no problem with
Novell's bugzilla site and our local bugzilla site also has no problems like
this with any browser.

I'm dissppointed in your choice to close this bug with ZERO questions asked.  I
was only trying to help -- never mind.
