Every website I have tried will not let me login using Firefox. I either receive the error message "length required" or I am directed back to the login page. It hasn't affected Safari, only Firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on, then off internet parental controls (I'm not sure if this actually had to do with the problem, but...better safe than sorry.)
2. Fill out login form for any website
Actual Results:  
I can't mess with the parental controls on my computer, but I receive the error/I am redirected to the login page every time I try to login to a website.

Expected Results:  
Let me log in to the website.

Parental controls for Leopard regarding the internet were turned on, then turned off prior to the first time I noticed the bug; bug did not seem to be occuring before this.

Running Leopard 10.5.2 on an intel iMac. I have no problems with Camino (my preferred browser), Firefox or Safari using my main (administrator) account. however trying a non-administrator account on the same machine or my MacBook gives me the "length required" message on Camino and Firefox but not with Safari. I just went into "accounts" and turned off the parental controls and tested Camino. Worked fine after this.
