    This problem has been annoying me for a year now. Some days I have been able to log in at first attempt, but more often than not 2, 3 or even more attempts was required. Some days I even have given up completely.

    But a week ago I noticed something. I always use the same link to access the forum - and have done so for years - and I noticed that the link was not a secure connection (http://... at the start of the link). I have changed my link to https://www.motorsportforums.com/forum.php and since, I have been able to log on without problems. This has now worked for a week, so I am beginning to hope, that I have hit a solution.

    I don't know, if it will continue working, but I just thought, I would share it with you, so that you also could check, if it could be a help for you.

    Thanks for sharing this tip. How do you login to the forum? Do you use the small user/password text boxes in the upper right corner? Or do you login using 'Reply' button?

    Hi Jarek. I always log in by using the user/password text in the upper right corner. But I also have to tell, that using the https-solution has not made the login-problem disappear completely. I am still rejected sometimes - however, it is slightly better than before.

    It happens to me on the (very rare) occasions that I try to log in. Usually I just lurk & read the posts of interest. I have found that sometimes when the login fails I can hit the page refresh button causing my browser (Firefox) to re-send the login data & that gets me in. It's how I got in to post this.
