     hello gurus,

    I am facing this problem for long time. It would be appreciated if some1 can help me.

    ASP Session is working in IE but not in firefox(on web server). Firefox is allowed to accept cookies. i have tried all. I stopped firewall and ran but still same. session timeout is not working . it works fine on IE. 

    Well when i tried with localhost in firefox , to check session, it works ok. but when i try on webserver, its not working.

    Plzzzzzzzzzzz help.

    Is your 'remote' connection going through some type of proxy server?  Sounds network related more than something IIS specific.

    You wouldn't setup a proxy server, this is a device or technology to share a internet connection.  When you originally posted, you said it worked 'locally', but not on the web server.  Is it possible to try 'locally' on the web server with firefox?

    Sounds like a DNS issue where it could have automatically registered all 4 ip's in DNS or someone put them there.  I would fix DNS to have only one IP address and see if your site works.  Or configure your website to listen on just a single ip address.

    I can't think of anything on the server that would be causing Sessions to not work with Firefox.  Have you tried Opera or Safari (apples browser) to see if the same behavior happens?  If they work, then there is something with FF.  Also, do you see this behavior on multiple machines with various versions of FF?

     HI,

     

    I have  similar problem. I have a .net tree control (generated java script). It works on my PC (Vista) with IE & FF. But, fails when I browse it from FF for the site on IIS web server. Hwoever, IE is ok. I have even tried with localhost on the webserver and fails. If you guys know the solution please let me know.
