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.

It doesn't have it in IE7 either. What's more, if you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have known it was supposed to!

(2) I can post a thread in Firefox 4, but not always, but that's better than my experience with IE7. For as with that I haven't been able to post a thread at all in the new PCA format?

Of course then there's the posting to someone elses thread. After I post, I have to come out of that forum altogether, before I can post to that thread again! What is that all about?

It does have it on my Firefox 4. Do you have any adblockers running or other add-ons?

Not being able to post without exiting has generally been fixed.

"Not being able to post without exiting has generally been fixed."

I just tried it again on my Message to Yimbo thread and I stand corrected. There was however one small detail, I clicked the resolved tick in the thread and posted a final message simulainiously. I then clicked the post button and it said 'Please Wait'. I waited for a little while then it eventually cleared. When I checked, it had terminated the thread with a tick, but hadn't added the final post. I had to go back and do that again.

I found the NoScript add-on will block the various editing icons, but if you're a NoScript user you'll probably already know that. other than that I've no idea. I've just been back to the forums since the changes so I'm still learning myself.

I have been using YesScript and disabling it made no difference.

I have now checked my lap top running on XP with Firefox 4 and it is exactly the same as my PC using Windows 7 and Firefox 4 - the tool bar etc are not shown.

In addition I have looked everywhere for ticking a subject as resolved and can't find anything. Is this a Firefox problem or is it me?

As an OP you should see a grey tick by someone's post. Click on it and it should change to green = subject resolved.

Thanks very much. I've been going crackers trying to find it!

I'll tick this resolved now even though Firefox isn't displaying PCA properly but at least I now know how to tick it resolved!
