Default Does anyone else have problems with Flikr?

I recently switched from using photobucket to Flikr, as I much prefer the way Flikr manages your photographs. However, after a few weeks of setting up my account and downloading photographs I am now completely locked out. The sign in screen goes into an infinite loop continuously prompting me for my password. Has anyone else had this problem and can suggest how to get around it? The Yahoo troubleshooting site says this loop problem can happen if the browser has problems storing cookies. I have tried all the common solutions to this kind of problem: cleared the browser cache and deleted cookies; restarted the browser; logged out of Yahoo account and logged back in again; restarted the PC; upgraded Internet Explorer to most recent version; tried Internet Explorer with no add-ons; tried Internet Explorer with privacy setting set to "accept all cookies" (not recommended) and finally gave up with Internet Explorer altogether and tried Mozilla Firefox. But I'm still locked out.

If anyone is waiting for me to respond or comment on Flikr, this is why I am no longer responding.

Ah, it seems there is a major problem with the Flikr service at the moment. Staff have been working on it for several days without a solution yet. If you are one of the unlucky people affected here is a link to the discussion thread (at the end of which I hope staff will post the solution):

Steven, I haven't got any problems and that might be strange because I'm on flickr the whole day! And active very regularly throughout the day because I admin two very busy challenge groups there.

I'm on Firefox and Apple 10.6.8 as you probably know.

I'm also "warned" for the end of the month because Flickr will implement changes then and that's exactly the time we have a celebratory, second birthday, extra busy time in the Pre*Game challenge group *sigh*
