    Why is my computer doing this on this site only..

    I have noticed this since I have been back from my self imposed exile. When I click on the green "reply to thread" button, all I get is the "waiting" cursor..the circle that goes round and round. The reply box does not open. But if I go to the bottom of the post itself and hit the black reply with the little arrow, a reply box opens right up for me.
    BUT WAIT..there's more. When I hit "post reply" again it waits and waits, until I go to the refresh button at the top of my screen. Then my reply will have posted.
    I have just cleared my History and Cache and still the same issue.

    Mine does too and has for a little bit now. I have to doubleclick it and it takes me right to the advanced screen
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    Does it happen anywhere else? Other forums?

    The only common denominator I can immediately see is that both Marie and floppy are using Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9. If either of you feel like switching the site to engage Compatibility View you could see if there's a difference, at the moment neither of you is using it on ForumGarden.

    I have Windows 7 somewhere on this machine, I'll upgrade to Internet Explorer 9 and try to repeat your finding.

    I wouldn't doubt that for a moment.

    I just switched to Google Chrome. Hit reply to thread green button with no delay. Let me hit the post quick reply button and see what happens

    edit to add: also no delay on using post quick reply. Guess I may have to visit through Chrome.

    IE sucks.

    FG doesn't like it when I talk like that.

    Were I a sufficiently adept analyst programmer to have designed and coded IE9 I'd feel quite pleased with myself. The closest I got was a nasty little harvesting spider which would have resulted in a court case had I handed it over. Someone spent a year in jail not long after and I suspect it was my end user.

    This didn't make a bit of sense to me when I opened it on IE. Then opened it in Chrome and decided it was the poster that was confusing not the browser or browsee.
