Default Unable to access Private Messages

Weird login issues with my account. It gives me errors when logging in, but displays my username in the upper right hand corner (as if logged in successfully). From there I can click on 'User CP' which displays as it should.

I can also view threads and post (as I did this one)

If I click on anything under "Private Messages", it throws me back to the login page and says I am not logged in.

I have reset my password multiple times, and it does not seem to help. So yeah, people are trying to message me but I am unable to see them or respond.

Yup lots of issues with logging in even though I am logged in and seeing the OT thread.
F**k the boating accident. If it's time for a "boating accident" it's time to start F'n shootin.

Updated: I logged in/out several times and now I can now see my messages!

I am now having this problem: I'm logged in, but can't see my private messages. I got notified of a new PM today, but it appears that I have an additional 3 new PMs for which I never received a notification.

Logged in from a Fedora linux desktop using firefox. When I click on the Private Messages button in the upper right corner under my username, I'm delivered to a page that says I'm not logged in, and attempting to do so from there just delivers me back to the same page

Are there any solutions/workarounds?

I'm having all the same issues plus its deleting all the PM's I've received, except for one for each day of the last two days. I received seven PM's yesterday, now only one still shows up, but it still says I have seven messages from yesterday. Frustrating when receiving pictures to make a purchase.

Like others, I cannot access my messages nor can I search for my previous posts. There is no search function in the private forearms accessories forum to bump my ad unless I wade through hundreds of threads to find mine.
