Please do the following:
 
1) check your cookie and javascript preferences
(Edit->Prefs->Privacy&Security->Cookies and Edit->Prefs->Advanced->Scripts&Plugins)
 
2) check that you're not blocking cookies from the site (the 'cookie sites' tab
under Tools->Cookie Manager)

3) try creating a new profile and testing, to see if old caps preferences are
hanging around.
