Today I couldn't log in to the main site, but I could to the forums. Once on the forums page, I could get everywhere else, but had to log in again when I tried to visit another area. My Lucky List was really a challenge. Finally figured out a work around that I could enter my sweeps and display that I had entered. Don't know if what I said made sense.

Cancel this out, because I can access easily now. I hate computer problems! Probably, because I don't understand, or when things are changing.

I had login problems yesterday and again today.  Even after I was able to login, the items on my lucky list wouldn't load.

Problems for me also.  I am logged in but cannot pull up the sweeps on my lucky list.  I click on them and get a blank page.  I have to bring them up by typing the name in my browser and bring them up from "memory".  Also my Lucky List will not refresh to show what has been entered.  I had these problems yesterday and they continue today.

Same problems.  At first the site won't let me log in.  Then, it won't load my sweeps.  I have to assume when it finally loads my sweeps, they won't open when I click on them, just like last few days.

I finally was able to login and get my sweeps to load.  The problem then was that none of them would open as I clicked on them.  I had to copy and paste the title to each sweep to Google.  Then I had to find and  enter them on other sweepstakes websites.  I assume this is a temporary glitch at ST, and I hope it's corrected soon.


This is a great site, keep up the good work.

I couldn't get the sweeps to load either, if I just clicked on them. I found that they would load if I clicked on the scroll wheel of my mouse and opened them in a new tab.

Let's see if this makes any kind of sense. I use a PC and I don't know if it's just a coincidence, but I start having problems also when one advertisement opens and starts to play music. It seems to hijack the page and moves me to where it is displayed. Not enough of it is displayed to tell what it's for and then it goes black and then I have control over the page again. This has only started happening in the last couple of days.

I have similar problems for the last couple of days while using Firefox as my browser.  The problem started after an update to Firefox was installed.  When I use Chrome the site works with no problem.

Thanks coleman66! I tried Edge and it worked fine. I forgot about Firefox changing, so that would appear to be the problem for me. I hadn't even considered changing browsers.

Just like Coleman66 said. After an update to Firefox I am having problems only on this site. I also get the strange music problem. Yesterday I had to enter through a different browser.

I started having problems with the site this morning after starting my computer. Mozilla updated and I guess, from reading the comments here, that this is where the problem is. At least for one problem which was clicking on the sweepstakes enter button but the site would not load. I read here and then downloaded chrome though I don't like it and it is working fine other than that stupid add that starts on the first page and won't let you scroll to the top, really have to force it there, once I got past that page, so far everything is working. Now it's going to take me sometime to re-enter all the sweeps with my info in chrome that was saved in Mozilla.

It does appear that Firefox is the culprit and with Firefox being a totally new version, maybe it's going to take them awhile to get all the kinks out of it. Firefox is my favorite browser, but at least there are other browsers that don't seem to have a problem with ST.

Thanks Coleman66.


This finally got me off my duff and I figured out how to get Roboform installed on the Edge browser.  It works fine.  I can log in, my Lucky List loads and I can now enter mysweeps by using edge.


Thing is I can't log in to the forum using Edge.  I have to open Firefox, which still won't work for my sweeps, and use it to login to the Forum.  Go figure.

since  the up grade i'm having a problem too, i think firefox doesn't like  the unsecured  log in, and not opening the sweep i just refresh and it opens, hope some one figures this out

fishrrn100 posted above about clicking on the mouse wheel,  but that's too slow and cumbersome.  I click on the my lucky list  tab by clicking  on the mouse wheel and my sweeps open in a new window.  I then must click on each sweep with a mouse wheel click to get it to open in a new window.


I Googled <> <> windows 10 and RoboForm <> <> and  found this Roboform site <> <> Using RoboForm With Microsoft Edge-RoboForm (the second on the list of sites).  I followed the instructions and now have RoboForm on the Edge Browser and it works.  The site says that you must have a Roboform everywhere account.  I tried to copy and paste the info but couldn't, so you'll have to do your own search.
