View Full Version : Can not access once I have logged into facebook

I use my user name and password to log into the USMS site and the blog. I do not have Facebook connected to my account on here.

However once I have logged into my Facebook page on this computer - when I come back to USMS later, I log on and if I attempt to do anything I get:

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I am not able to access anything here - unless I go and clear the browser history and then view this site before I attempt to go log back into Facebook. I have also checked and I am not disabling or refusing cookies in the settings.

I have also tried this using the Microsoft Edge browser as well, and the same thing happens.

Do not want to have to keep clearing my cache and re-logging into every site I use afterwards.

Hoping there is a fix I am missing!

Thanks in advance for the help

Facebook connect has been disabled in the forums, as this version of vBulletin apparently doesn't have a change available that works reliably with the newer facebook api, and facebook has disabled the old api.

Will that be activated again for Facebook. I hope we don't lose previously logged entries. I am participating in going the distance. Thanks.

This has nothing to do with any data you or others have entered on the USMS site. Everyone with an account here has a login user name and password for these forums, which is also what you use today for logging in to your MyUSMS and FLOG. You just need to use that user name and password, as you just did to post here. The only thing that has changed is that your facebook profile is no longer linked to your forums account, and the ability to like/share things on facebook from this forum is gone for now.

There is a newer major update to the forums that supports facebook connect. The developers have said they will not be updating the version that we currently use, so our only choice would be to update to their newer version. Unfortunately, a LOT of people with vBulletin installs do not like what they did in this later version and have avoided upgrading as a result. We are one of them. We'll look into the implications of upgrading further, but I don't know if/when it will happen at this point.

Thank you @matysekj for the follow up and the information. Appreciate it! Reset password, sometimes it will not take the new password. I just use resets.
