New PCA Site and Firefox 4

Has anybody queried why, when using Firefox 4, the 'Start New Subject for Discussion' box does not have the editing tool bar and the '?' above it like it does in Internet Explorer 9?

Or is it just me?

In addition I actually tried posting this query using Firefox 4 but it never appeared so I am now trying it in Explorer 9 where I notice that, as I type, what I am typing appears in another box below, which certainly wasn't happening when using Firefox 4.

Apologies if this has already been raised but I couldn't find it.

Great - the 'tick' doesn't work in Firefox either. I've had to change browsers to do it:-((

There must be something wrong with your 'Firefox 4', it works with mine.

You could try and see if you can see the tool bar in Firefox safe mode.

Thanks for your response guys.

Woolwell - tried safe mode no difference.

Graphicool - It seems unlikely as I get the same result on my laptop using XP and Firefox 4 rather than W7 on my PC BUT I will try installing a fresh copy of Firefox and see what happens.

Uninstalled Firefox 4, downloaded, and installed a fresh copy. The net result - zilch! Still the same:-(

I might try a copy of Firefox 3** and see what happens.

I have completely uninstalled Firefox from my PC and reinstalled it with add-ons disabled. Still the same.

Both Internet Explorer and Safari work perfectly.

I think I'll just have to get used to using IE again :-(( ( but only for PCA ;-) )

Eureka!!!

I have found out that when I (thought I had) removed the add-on YesScript I hadn't changed the options applying it to PCA before removing it. So even though it didn't appear to be there the damage was done. I re-installed it, changed the options to remove PCA, then uninstalled it.

All ok now.

Thanks for being patient with me.

Glad you got it sorted the end, that's all that matters.
