Firefox and Security Tokens

There is a reported bug in Firefox 3.6 that can cause problems when previewing or posting a message to a forum.  It is not specific to any one type of board software.  The bug causes an error message pertaining to an invalid or missing security token to be displayed.

A workaround is to press the Back button in Firefox, refresh the page and then preview/post again (though this can lead to the text of the message being deleted).  Reverting to v3.5.7 cures the problem.

It would be wise to backup Firefox settings using MozBackup before reverting to an earlier version.

Older versions of Firefox
