    I can't . I just get a page refresh.

    Have just changed my browser to Mozilla Firefox and so I might be missing something? Site or me?

    I was wondering if my inability to log out was related to this site or to my new browser?

    Something similar to this happened to me when I started using Firefox instead of IE6, but then it cleared up.
    Not sure what caused it but it could be that when using it on IE I hadn't logged out from RHP before using Firefox. Make sure you are logged out of both browsers (your original browser, I am assuming it is IE) then try logging back in using the firefox.
    Not sure how feasible this is, I may be clutching at straws but this was happening to me, and something I did (I think) cleared it up.

    Also running Mozilla (good riddance IE6), I have had no problems. Log out also works. I'm pretty sure if you delete the RHP cookies, and log on again, all will be well.

    This sounds more feasible, as I deleted all my RHP cookies before the problem cleared up for me

    On the Tools menu there is a Cookie Manager. Go to "Manage Stored Cookies". If RHP is all you care about, you can delete all cookies, or you can find www.redhotpawn.com related cookies in the cookie list and delete them individually. (I've never had any problems deleteing all cookies, other than having to log on again to the few sites that I am a member of)

    I.E. 6?

    I have never had any problems at all - with 6 or 5.5? What am I missing?

    Yep, that all worked a treat except for the pop up?. Thanks all

    PS to Exy: get the Mozilla suite - you'll never go back to IE / OE.

    Edit PS to Russ: What happened to the links to the alternate supported browsers on the home page??

    In what sense? As I said, I have had no problems with I.E. 5.5 onwards - whether that's because I've used good security software in addition I don't know.

    What is your complaint with I.E. that Mozilla / Opera avoids?

    Its the whole Mozilla package compared to IE, absolutely superb.
    Mutliple tabs really helps when playing loads of games.
    Loads more functions and support, besides Russ swears by it
