XF 1.2 Can't login on index

I recently switched hosting services following the recommendations on this post: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/frequently-asked-questions.5183/#post-180455

Everything seems to work just fine except users aren't able to login on the index page. They can only login if they go to a different page. This is only a problem if friendly urls are installed, if they try logging in on the index with friendly urls disabled, it works just fine.

It worked just fine where my files were previously hosted so I'm not sure on what's the cause. I'm sure mod_rewrite is enabled because my htaccess file obeys other rules that require mod_rewrite. Any suggestions?

I had also upgraded to 1.2.3 from 1.2.1 I believe it was after moving.

Ask your new web hosting company to look at why the following code is not working in your .htaccess file:

RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
Spent about 3-4 hours in a support chat with the host & they couldn't figure out what the problem was. Is there anything else I could do on my end?

What is the link to your website? When you say they can't login, what exactly do you mean? Do they receive errors?
