Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I have a Netscape webmail account (Now AOL), when I attempt to connect
to the login page the browser reports connection reset by peer.

This appears to be related to a cookie that AOL mail is setting.
This problem appears to be specific to Firefox, it has never happened before, and is still not happening on another system running Firefox

To recreate the problem :-
Login into the AOL mail login page # This will work the first time
Logout of the AOL mail service
Navigate to another site
Try and navigate to the AOL login page # This will fail and the browser will report connection reset by peer

To fix the problem use "Tools -> Clear Private Data" and from the
selection box ensure that only "Cookies" is ticked then click the "Clear
Private Data" button, the browser will now navigate to the AOL login
page with no problem, and you will be able to login again.

It means clearing all cookies every time you navigate to the AOL login
