Posting and Firefox 3.6 - May 29th 2010, 03:26 AM

This is also in the bug reports forum, not sure if it's a bug or something on my end.

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 3.6 I have experienced issues with posting. When I want to post or edit a post or something like that the text box is a sort of light blue. If I click on it and type, it will register the text, but I will not be able to see what I have typed. This is frustrating when I make errors and have to retype the whole thing to correct them. The only workaround I have found is disabling JavaScript, which disables my ability to format my text and use emoticons if I don't know the proper codes.

I cannot reproduce this bug in either IE 8 or Chrome 5.0.375.55. Also, when down-grading to Firefox 3.5 the problem goes away so I assume this is an isolated problem relating to 3.6. Right now I'm using Firefox for general chat and forum browsing and using Chrome to actually post. But I would appreciate it if there was a way to consolidate the two into one browser, namely Firefox. Any help is appreciated.

Hm, I'm on Firefox 3.6 and I've never had this, and I know quite a few people who're in the same boat, so I reckon it must be an isolated thing.

You mentioned that disabling javascript seems to fix it, which means it's probably something wrong with how your computer interprets javascript. Since javascript is built into your web browser, I'd suggest two things.

Firstly, uninstall firefox, restart, and then install it again, it might have been a corrupt install the first time around.

If that doesn't work, make sure you've got all the latest updates from Microsoft (I'm assuming you're using windows here, kick me if I'm wrong).

If both those don't work, then we start getting into the nitty gritty stuff >.>. Hopefully those will though. =)

Ahh, okay, firstly, what OS are you on?

And wait, you *did* try reinstalling it, yeah? After uninstalling it. Or maybe I'm just reading that wrong >.>

Ah okay, can I get a detailed rundown of your system?
Concentrating more on the software side of things, since it could potentially be anything until we narrow it down ^^;.

It doesn't show the text at all, or, is it scrolling, so you can't see where you're typing?

On TH, do you have default formatting? Like have you selected in options your default font and size and that? If you have, then I would try switching back to the default font. This was happening to me with Firefox 3.6, and that's what I did, and it works fine now.
