Firefox becoming incompatible?
I've made posts to the Forums through my preferred browser, Firefox before. But as of late, I have been unable to do so. The post simply doesn't load or occur.
I've gotten on Chrome and it works on that (which is how this post is being formed).
I tried safe mode for FF but that didn't work either.
Any suggestions or help?
I installed Firefox 11.0 to test this out, and so far I'm not seeing any problems. Have you tried updating the browser yet, or are you locked to a certain version for some reason?
Tony Ponce was having some issues in Elephant using Firefox as well. Maybe you two happen to be using the same version and it just happens to be broke?
I'm using Firefox 9.0.1 and it works beautifully.
I 'm on FF 11.0 (they really went crazy with those version numbers) which is the latest version and I don't have problems with posts going through, but after they're posted it can go to the cached page without my post instead of refreshing. It happens more on the cblogs than the forums, but I think I've seen it on both.
I'm going to use this post to test it out, then edit.
Quick replies appear, sometmies combinations of post, following a link, then back causes the post to "disappear" until the page is refreshed.

I just updated to version 11.0 and still working like a charm.
Just for reference, are you using FF on Windows or Mac. Just trying to get a picture of what's working and what's not. Support head people are aware of the problem, as Mxy and Andy mentioned.

Maybe I'll try clearing cache. That's usually a good canned answer.
Tony's problem was with FF 11.0 actually, my understanding is Mozilla is supposed to be working on a patch for that specific issue. So this one is probably an entirely different issue. Got a request in with Niero to upgrade to the latest version of vb when he has a chance, hopefully that might fix things here. Sadly Firefox is kinda notorious for this sort of crap, which is why I ditched it a long time ago.
