Sometime in the last several weeks I've discovered that when I log-on here and attempt to Reply to another member's post, nothing at all happens--I don't get the Editor window to appear below in the window like it should (and it used to work just fine). I can Start a discussion with Firefox, and IE9 works with the Reply button (so I don't think it has anything to do with a firewall), but Firefox does no longer work at all. I've tried disabling Addons/Plugins, tried Safe Mode w/Networking, I've updated Java and Flash, nothing works.

 

Any ideas? Does anyone here know what addons/plugins are needed to make the Reply button and Editor pop-up work?

    Hi ...

     

    It's an issue with the forum software which the Apple moderators are aware of.

     

    For the time being, Safari works fine for replying to posts.

    ASC forum search for:  Can't Reply to a post here.

     

    You may not have access all the links from that serarch.

    Hi,

     

    I am using Firefox 13.0.1 on a Mac and I am having no problems.

     

    I was not having issues over the last two days either when people posted that they could not reply to some threads.

     

    I do shut my Computer down each night meaning that I start up and then Start Firefox each day.

    This may clear some caches out each time I do this and gets around the issue others have had.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the points.

     

    Most browsers on most platforms will cache the pages they have been to recently so that using your Back and Forward buttons appear quicker.

     

    Shutting down the Browser often clears these and sometimes restarting the computer clears other temporary files that are kept.

     

    It may pay to try the standard "Turn it Off and Turn it On again"
