    Mozilla Firefox

    Any one have any problems posting using Firefox? It's not a real issue, but sometimes when I reply to a post using the quick reply button the screen goes blank. I have to restart the website. My post shows up though. It works ok if I reply using the Post Reply button though. I also can not post any pictures using Firefox, I must switch to IE.

    Will Firefox let you cut and paste?

    I cut and paste all the time using Firefox.

    Next time the screen goes blank after pressing submit reply, try using the "go back" button. It has worked for me on the occasional snafu

    Your experience sounds different from mine, but I did used to have trouble with posting here from Firefox until I found the setting for different editor types. I never used quick reply, but the WYSIWYG editor is horrible under Firefox. I could type messages, but there was no visible cursor, and I could not reposition the cursor (visible or not) in the message at all.

    Anyway, I found the setting under "User CP" (the far left item in the toolbar above). From the Your Control Panel section of the page, under "Settings and Option", choose "Edit Options". On the right side of the screen, it shows "Edit Options" divided into several sections. Under the very last section, "Miscellaneous Options", you'll be able to choose from the various editors available. Mine started out set to "Advanced Interface", which doesn't work. It probably uses ActiveX or some kind of Microsoft extensions to JavaScript or something like that. I'm currently using the "Standard Editor", which seems to work fine (though I've never tried to use it to post pictures). There's a third option, "Basic Editor", which I've never tried.

    So my advice would be to play around with this setting and see if one of the lesser editors helps you out.

    There is also a Firefox extension called IE View that you can install. This extension allows you to open certain links in an instance of Internet Explorer from within Firefox. It adds a right-click menu option to allow you to open a link in IE, and it can also be configured to always open certain links in IE when you click on them. There are probably other similar extensions available, but this is the only one I have experience with. Link to the web site is:

    IE View - Launch pages in IE from Firefox

    Good luck.

    I cannot use the Quick Reply box without getting the "white screen of death" either. To escape, I hit the back button, but it's annoying.

    So, I've always gone to the WYSIWYG editor by clicking the Post Reply button.
