I've been usiing Logmein for a year to access my Home PC (W7 64) from my laptop (W7 x86).

This morning I am unable to connect using Firefox, after entering the access code it just hans saying .. waiting.. there is a message on the PC Logmein event log saying

"warning ..... GET request for /favicion.ico (no session cookie) "

I can access it through Google Chrome without problems.

I have never seen this error on my firefox but I would start by going to Firefox -  tools - addons.  remove logmein.

then update Java and adobe flash and then goto logmein again and login and try to connect to a machine.  This will start the applet download again and hopefully this fixes it.

Hi, this seems to be a problem with Firefox since you can connect via Chrome.

1-On Firefox go to Tools¿ Options¿Privacy and ensure “Use custom settings for history” or “remember history" is selected
2-Every time you log in to a remote computer via Logmein, Firefox will ask for Plug-in to be installed, from my experience if you don’t install the Plug-in sometimes your sessions will freeze.  

If this does not resolve the issue, I recommend connecting to your home PC using another computer with Firefox and see how you go...

Good Luck

OK, well I can't connect at times from a different computer either, Chrome also stops working as well from time to time, a re-boot usually 'cures' the problem temporarily, but after a few 'connects' FF refuses to connect, then sometimes Chrome.

I re-installed Logmain on the C, I uninstalled the mirror drivers, no difference.

Are both of these computers on the same network?  

If so I would look at the router or for malware on both machines.


Try a reboot of your home router.

I would also run a malware and spyware scan.

google superantispyware and malwarebytes and download them and run a scan.
