Trouble logging into TypePad with Firefox browser? Clear your TypePad cookies

I recently found myself unable to log into my TypePad account when using my web browser of choice, Firefox.  After asking them to resend my password (which was just as I’d remembered it), I finally tried logging in using MS Internet Explorer – and had no problem.  Tried again in Firefox – no go.

What gives?  Well, the SixApart team recently made some huge changes to enhance both TypePad’s functionality and user experience (more about that in a future post), but those changes require you to reset your cookies in order to access TypePad from within Firefox.

How to fix it?  Clear your TypePad cookies by doing the following:

  • In Firefox, in the Tools menu, choose the item “Options”
  • Click on “Privacy” on the left side of the dialog box that pops up
  • Expand the section entitled, “Cookies” and then click the “View Cookies” button
  • A new dialog box will popup entitled, “Stored Cookies” – scroll through the list of sites until you find www.typepad.com, and then, for each cookie from www.typepad.com, select it and click the “Remove Cookie” button
  • Click “OK” to close the ‘Stored Cookies’ window, and then click “OK” again to close the Options window.
  • You should now be able to log into Typepad from FireFox

Nice blog...I plan to sit down and read through later on this evening. I'm considering moving from Typepad to Wordpress. I've been having problems logging into Typepad all day and now my site is unviewable!

hi. your site ROCKS. i'm new to my TypePad service and now have 10 pages of notes of problems...specifically THIS ONE! (i actually sent 4 support tix to TP yesterday regarding it).

my site is still *under development* (still figuring a target audience, an apt blog name, a FOCUS etc...) but basically it started because a lot of my girlfriends are creative types who all have macs and were/are constantly asking advice. it'll be mostly tips for mac newbies, with humor, news, commentary and shopping. finally, i wanted to include my journey of learning Macromedia's Studio 8 & Adobe CS 2.0 which is the artist part of it.

anyways, maybe by next week, i'll have more content...may i have your permission to add you to my site's blogroll? i think your site could definitely help at least 10-12 people i know! thanx ~ jennah (a.k.a. mac Geekette)
