    Can't log on w/ Safari 5.1.4. I'm using 5 extensions: click to flash, turn off the lights, shortly, adblock, and evernote. But I have those or similar on Firefox and Chrome as well and have no issue w/ logon. Also no logon issues w/ other sites.

    When I try to log on I get the message that my UID/PW was wrong and that I have x of 5 attempts left.

    Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Can you try turning off all the extensions and trying?

    See if they are related or not.

    I am having the exact same issue with the latest version of Safari. Login doesn't work for the three vBulletin based forums that I frequently visit.

    I only have two plugins, AdBlock and Translate, and disabling them didn't seem to help.

    It works fine in Firefox though. And it worked fine before upgrading Safari.

    Edit: Problem solved! You need to turn off 32 bit mode (find, hit command+I, then uncheck "open with 32 bit mode" (or something like that)).

    Turned on Open in 32 Bit Mode = Works

    I checked the Application Info Panel and found that 'Open in 32 Bit Mode' was off. Turned it on = works. Weird.

    btw - I had been having trouble signing on to networks at some airports and at Marriott Courtyard Hotels that use iBHAN for their ISP. The URL subscription script would go to 75% completion, quit and restart. Endless loop.

    Switched to FireFox - it worked. Typing this now in Firefox but Safari is also running.

    Seems to indicate that changing a setting is key to the resolution. It does not seem to matter what setting is changed.:confused:

    I couldn't see my Gmail inbox or use Google Reader. I didn't try the 32-bit version trick. After the update I can see my Gmail inbox again.
