2.5.3 will fix an issue where on Safari a studnet attempts to submit
an answer to problem and it is seemingly ignored (no grading, not ties
used value just goes away)

> Description: I have no trouble logging on to loncapa from any computer except my new macbook. Every time I try to log on to the network from my macbook, it logs me in for a brief second and then logs me back out and sends me to the log in screen again. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do to correct this?
