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.

As posted in my other thread now lost in the mists of antiquity, I have given up trying to use the PCAdvisor site on Firefox4, whatever advice I have been given I have tried but I am still missing photos and other graphics, link buttons etc so now using IE9 exclusively.

To add to these annoyances Firefox has crashed three times today even when the site has not being actively used, I can go back to a window which I had left open only to find an apology to say it had crashed and was sending a report.

I have now put IE9 as my default reluctantly because some add ons don't work with it, maybe thats the problem, but one of the "cures" I tried was running with all addons disabled but that made no difference at all.

I found that, in the case of the YesScript add on for FF, disabling didn't cure the problem but actually going into the YesScript options and physically removing PCAdviser did. This maybe the case with other add ons.

Hi Guys

As I said before I use FF4 for PCA without any trouble what so ever. At least, nothing that was anything to do with FF. But then I don't use ANY add-ons at all! I like the new FF, clean and uncluttered, ~ in fact I guess the same can be said about the new look PCA. I think they complement each other perfectly.

Perhaps if you were to 'Disable' all your FF add-ons and see if that changes anything, other than no add-ons? If it works, start putting the add-ons back one at a time, till you find the culprit. Depending on what it is, it's up to you wether or not you keep it.
