Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I can write a question, but I can't vote, accept or leave a comment. Everything was working fine after the last update. It only became a problem moments ago. Say 1 hour before this post but 6 hours ago was fine (I left a comment on "Bison: Implementing the code after rules").

I cleared cookies and closed my browser. No luck. Using private mode (or another browser) solves it, but most of the time I like to keep my browsing history.

How might I clear data/solve this problem? I don't want to delete all my data for all sites just to fix this.

I am using Firefox 3.6.8.

-Edit- side effects include not showing upvotes to post I voted on.

-Edit2- it also happens on Super User and Meta Super User. However it doesn't seem to effect Meta Stack Overflow. and other SE are effected as well Geeze. If I am not autologged in then I get the problem. It looks like all i can do is post questions (how funny).

What does If I am not autologged in then I get the problem mean? Why shouldn't you be auto-logged in? – Arjan Sep 12 '10 at 13:01
Arjan: I dont know. It just doesnt and manually logging in gives me said problem. Its fixed by doing what i posted below but unfortunately it has an annoying affect. I tried deleting cookies on SE and SO but that didnt cut it. – acidzombie24 Sep 12 '10 at 17:23

After clearing site preference not working i decided to delete the last 4 (cookies, cache, active logins, site preference) and it fixed the problem. Hopefully it doesn't clearing this doesnt effect my preference and settings on too many other sites.
