Cookie problem

I'm getting big giant "Element USER_NAME is undefined in COOKIE" messages instead of a front page on MetaFilter in Mozilla 1.1b for Windows. IE seems fine. I get the header, then a big gray error box with a stack trace and stuff. MetaTalk appears fine, and I can look at individual MeFi threads and archives and such. It also appears to come and go; I was able to get a front page earlier today, but now I can't. Happens when logged in, when not logged in. Been happening for a couple of days. Any other Mozilla users seeing this?

Cookie problem

This morning, for some reason, the MeFi "cookie" starting expecting USER_NAME instead of USER_ID as it had done for the previous months. This caused an ugly blowup in the code and lots of juicy error stuff on the screen.

I deleted my MeFi cookie (thanx Mozilla) and proceeded to log in again. Now I have both USER_ID (numeric) and USER_NAME (anser) in my cookie. If the change was because they don't trust the numeric ID not to change, then there's not much point including it at all, seems to me.
