I can't access the PM menu from the 'frontpage'

This seems to be a problem that has started occuring since the update.
Whenever I try to open the private message menu by clicking on the "Good Afternoon Mac, you have 53 messages, 0 are new", it just goes into a blank page almost right away.
I need to be in a thread or just somewhere else than the front page to access it without getting a blank page.
 
It's that big of a deal, but I just wanted to put it out there.  Smiley

Hmm, strange.  
 
What web browser and operating system are you using?
 
What is in the address bar of your browser when it is displaying the blank page?
 
Does it do it just on your first visit to the forum index of that session or every time? For example, if you go and read some posts and then come back to the index page, do it do it then?

Running Vista with the newest version of Firefox.
And oddly enough, I tried going to the front page, going to a thread and then hit "HOME" and tried accessing it again, it worked. Hmm.
 
EDIT
What the, it does the same thing with the Search function.

OK, we can reproduce the problem here. It does it with any of the buttons not just search.  
 
Looks like it's a cookie issue.
 
You're using a bookmark to get to the forum? I'm assuming that bookmark is still using the old porcupinetreeforum.co.uk address?
 
Try changing your bookmark to procupinetreeforum.com instead. Does it still do it?

Only 53?  I have 62, AND I had to delete some because I got up to 75...  Cool
 
...just messing.  I had the same problem till I switched over to PTF version 6.37...  Wink
