Which version of Jira are you running? I do not see this behavior on Jira 5.1.7.

Are your cookies enabled?

Do you see the temporary administrative functions message at the top line of the screen?

Hi there,

Please refer to the documentation about the Administrator Access Authentication Fails in Jira.

Hope it helps.

Can this be replicated on another computer/browser? Sounds to me like a cookie problem. You can try deleting you cookies (ctrl+shift+del in your browser) and see if the problem persists.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Sorry I haven't responded sooner as I have been busy moving JIRA 5.1.8 / Confluence to another server.

I will look into the documentation for JIRA and clearing the cookies and let you know the outcome.

Thanks again for your assistance.

Thank you again everyone for your assisitance with this problem. As it turned out, 3rd-party cookies were being blocked in the browser I was using.

Sorry for the false alarm. This issue has been resolved. Please close.
