I have had trouble with both Safari and Firefox. Here's what I do: When the "manage H-Japan" options do not appear, I open the Editor Resource page (https://networks.h-net.org/editor-resources) and log in. Then I try the H-Japan page again. If I am still unsuccessful, I close the browser and reopen it, and voila! I'm good to go. I don't use Firefox all that much, but I find that with Safari, as long as I open the H-Japan page every day or so, it seems to remember who I am.

I have trouble finding the options I need as an editor under Safari. While everything looks fine in Firefox, Safari does not provide any of the options such as "manage posts" and so on.
