When I entered the site today, after typing in my password, I kept getting a blank page. Even refreshing the page didn't work. Anyone else?

I got around it by using the link from my Daily Digest to get to the digest and then go to my main account.

The blank page is http://www.paperbackswap.com/home.php

I use Firefox, which, like MS's browser, doesn't use 100% of the HTML standards.

Based on my experience developing Web sites, I wonder if editing was done to home.php and something was left out. For example, if a </table> was left out in the html code, MS Explorer would display the page, but Firefox wouldn't.

I experienced the same thing, Thomas.   Like you, I was able to get in through a different link.  I use Firefox, too.

I'm on Firefox now and didn't get a blank page coming to PBS.

It started working again for me later in the morning.
