I rarely post, but have reading posts for over a year, and signed up in 2013. I have learned alot, but am not totally new to espresso. Have been using machines that I term have "training wheels" since the late 90s, and just purchased the Izzo Alex Tre. I have looked at every machine out there, many comparisons on reviews, functionality, prices, and I am still somewhat confused, but feel that I made a good decision for me.
It arrives Thurs from Chris Coffee. I had great service working with MacKenzie - she rocks!!!!

PS Has anyone had trouble accessing this site using Firefox? I can't login using it. Had to use Explorer, which I rarely use. Any suggestions on how to remedy this?

Congratulations on your new Tre!
I'm happy to hear that you got so much help from Mackenzie. Mary was my guide with my espresso machine purchase from Chris, and she also rocks. The tech department rocks. Chris rocks (although maybe just a skosh over-caffeinated). Chris Coffee rocks. Rockaliciousness all around.
Too bad about Firefox not rocking for you. I'm using it now, no problem.
You may have a broken plug-in or registry error. If you haven't rebooted your computer since the problem happened, start with that. Please don't be angry for the Captain Obvious recommendation;
A non-current version of Firefox shouldn't cause site log-in problems, but an automatic update which encountered problems might;
Go to Firefox's Help menu, and choose "About Firefox." That will tell you if your version is current. If it isn't, the update should start automatically unless you disabled automatic updating at some time (when you first downloaded Firefox, for instance;
If, for whatever reason, Firefox doesn't automatically download and install the current version over whatever version you have now (even if it's current), go ahead and do it manually; ad
If the problem persists, try a complete uninstall and re-install. You may find that a third party uninstaller utility does better job of cleaning fragments out of Window's registry than Window's built in uninstaller. This is your chance to get rid of those plugs-ins which you don't actually use and have probably forgotten you have, but are just hanging around and messing with stuff; and to make sure that those plug-ins you have loaded are compatible with the current edition of Firefox.

+1 on the new Tre. I'm jealous. As for firefox. It might be easier to delete it from your system (including all the hidden bits...), then reinstall. It's never a bad idea to start over fresh every once in a while!
