Can't Login

Could you please help me understand how to uninstall Propane and start with a fresh install? A week ago or so I attempted to login at a location where I did not yet have Wi-Fi access and ever since the only thing I'm able to see is the "Connecting" screen with an image of the previous Wi-Fi login information faded in the background (see attached screen shot) whenever I launch Campfire. I've deleted the "Propane" folder within "Application Support" which prompted me to re-enter the URL and Login information but was met with the same result.

    HI Mark,

    that's completely bizarre.

    Here's what to try:

    1. exit from Propane.
    2. remove the ~/Library/Application Support/Propane folder. This does cause all of your configured campfire hosts to be removed from Propane and I'm not 100% convinced it's a required step, but it's probably better to make sure you have a clean slate.
    3. remove the ~/Library/Caches/com.protocool.Propane folder. The OS X URL loading system puts cached copies of pages in there. I suspect this is the true root of your problem.
    4. restart Propane and enter your host/login information

    Let me know how you make out.

    Regards, Trev
