I'm trying to log into ebay and having terrible problems, (other log-in sites let me sign in fine) even though my username is at the top when I first go on, it remembers me from last time and I see I'm logged in. But whenever I goto do something like revise an auction, and it wants me to sign in, it has my username pre-filled out, I just have to pop in my password..fair enough, this is where it starts to go pear shaped.

It then wants me to sign in for a second time, even though I just did, but this time it has even removed my username so I have to fill in both fields. Sometimes this works, but when I goto revise an auction to change the category, or do something that requires ebay to do carry out an action, firefox actually tries to download a .dll file!

"You have chosen to open ebayISAPI.dll from http:/cgi5.ebay.co.uk
What should firefox do with this file?
Open with... dllfile (default)
Or save to disk?"

Whats going on? Its annoying the [bleep] out of me as I sell on ebay daily, and cant alter my ads or sign in properly unless I click the IE engine tab in the bottom right to use ebay now.

Whats worse is that in the Internet Explorer engine option, I don't get the cut/copy/paste menu when I right click the highlighted text in the edit auction page, in 'edit HTML' where I want to change a few lines of code around, its only offering me select all, view background image, reload etc whereas ion firefox it gives me the cut/copy/paste options in that page even in the 'edit HTML' section.
