Help!  Getting error when trying to login using Mac

Aug 29, 2010 7:18 AM

I am getting an error no matter whether I use Firefox or Safari on my Mac when attempting to log into Adobe Story.  The error says "Failed to get user Preferences" and it forces me to log out  Any ideas on what is causing this?

    Hi Ladd,


    Can you provide the error message that you are getting? Are you able to log in using a windows machine?

    We need your help in isolating this issue. Could you please install Firebug addon for Firefox browser? You can install it from following link:


    After installing this, you need to go to following options in Firefox:

    1. Launch Firebug

    Tools> Firebug> Open Firebug or press F12

    2. Go to "Net" tab in Firebug and enable it

    Now you'll see all network traffic

    3. You'll see "getUserPref.PHP" (please see snapshot)

    4. Click on this

    5. Click on Response tab

    Now copy this content and then send it to following email id:

    neeraj at adobe dot com



    This will help us in isolating the problem.



    Please let us know if you find these steps problematic. In that case we can try to do troubleshooting using Adobe Connect.

    Also I would recommend you to uninstall Adobe AIR and Adobe Story and then reinstall both.
