Is anyone using Fire fox 4 to log into the 922 or 722 via 'https://dish.sling.com/'?

Using Firefox 4 I logged into (checked the remember me box) the site and after logging in, I was taken to the step one screen (enable web services) where it wants me to enter my receiver number. I've enter the number in a few times and each time, after about 30 seconds, a get a message stating "Your DISH DVR does not appear to be online." Trust me it is because I can log into the DVR using IE9.

How do I log off the site or force a log off? There is no log off option on either screen and if I close the session then go back to the site, it auto logs me in because I checked the remember me box.

What do I need to do to get logged off?

Dish Remote Access probably doesn't support Firefox 4 yet. Although it sort of surprises me that it could support IE9 since both browsers were released at about the same time.

Just logged in DRA just fine on FF4. Though, I use dishnetwork.com's "My Account" to log in to DRA.

I've been using DRA with FF 4 on my MacBook Pro for 2 weeks now. Works just fine. In fact, it's a bit more stable on it.

That's strange. I can log in to DRA with my Macbook and Firefox 4, but when I try to play video FF4 crashes every time it tries to load the Sling plugin (even after restarting FF4 in 32-bit mode). I currently am using Safari (in 32-bit mode) for viewing DRA as described here:

Sling Media Support - Configuring Safari in Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to work with Slingbox.com

Do you use DRA for Sling Adapter/922 viewing or just timer management, etc.?

Thank everyone, but nobody answered my question.How do I log out of DRA? When I initially logged in I checked the 'Remember me on this computer' box so now when I go to the site I'm already logged in. How do I log out? there isn't any log out option on the screen I go to?

Did what I was hoping I wouldn't have to do, deleted my Firefox history which cause me to re-login and everything now work. How I have to re-login into my other sites.

Microsoft essentially didn't change much with how extensions and add-ons work between IE8 and IE9. That's why DRA works in IE9. DISH didn't have to do anything.

Sorry not to have seen this earlier.. you could have gone into Firefox and just deleted your dish cookies
(FF4 on XP) Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Show Cookies .... select each of the "dish" and "sling" sites then remove ...
(Vista/7) FF Button -> Options -> Options -> Privacy -> Show Cookies ....
