For some reason my laptop keyboard won't work on MN. I am having to write out my posts and copy and paste them into MN, I'm not sure what I have done.... It's fine everywhere else

Any suggestions gratefully received!

how clever of you!!! I have the same problem and have emailed tech

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 19-Sep-11 15:13:01

(I couldnt figure out a way round it)

Moanna Mon 19-Sep-11 15:20:14

How strange! If you hear anything or fix it, would you let me know?

<It did take me a while to figure out the c/p thing grin>

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 19-Sep-11 17:14:54

will do! now I can insert text in the middle of a sentence and add text on the end of something but i cant start an independent sentence on the next line!!

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 19-Sep-11 17:16:43

mn its so very very odd!!!! have had to type this bit in another program as I still cant start a new box. but I can keep on typing once some text is in the box.

Moanna Mon 19-Sep-11 17:23:28

Oh I'll try that too..... yes I can add to the previous bit. I'm actually glad it's happening to someone else! It was driving me potty.

I reported the thread to mn and tech are looking into it for us. I'm glad I'm not the only one too - saves me trying to do drastic things to the pc (which inevitably I'll regret)

Moanna Mon 19-Sep-11 17:39:56

Fingers crossed they can fix it! Grrr at all of the copying and pasting, such a faff.

Hi guys
ARGH how completely flummoxing and irritiating. angry
We are very sorry that this is bugging you.

Please can you tell us which browser and version thereof you're using?
Thanks

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 19-Sep-11 20:36:19

chrome 14.0.835.163 m Olivia. Thanks for lookin at this - going to try with firefox.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 19-Sep-11 20:39:30

ok - its fine with firefox smile phew! no longer my browser of choice but it will do for the mo.
The issue must be with that version of chrome as I have the same on both my netbook and pc and it was exactly the same issue on both.
<panic over>

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 19-Sep-11 20:46:00

ah. okay that is v helpful to know. Will let the techs know.
Thanks

Moanna Mon 19-Sep-11 21:25:25

Ooh I'm chrome too, version 14.0.835.163 m.

Please please fix it, I can't give up either! <begs>

Another Chrome user here. Same version too.
Having to use inferior Firefox.

suzikettles Tue 20-Sep-11 19:51:30

I'm using Chrome to view this and it all seems fine confused

suzikettles Tue 20-Sep-11 19:52:29

Oh, and I've got the same version as Moanna and PersonalClown.

PersonalClown Tue 20-Sep-11 19:56:47

Viewing is fine Suzi. We just can't post with C&Ping from another area on using another Browser.

suzikettles Tue 20-Sep-11 20:03:02

Well I just posted the previous two posts (and this one! grin)

Unless you mean something different?

PersonalClown Tue 20-Sep-11 20:10:11

Oh that's just not fair!

I hate Firefox. I want to go back to my lovely Chrome. <sob>

suzikettles Tue 20-Sep-11 20:29:19

Ok, I just checked my version number again and it got me to update.

I'm now on 14.0.835.186 (no "m" or any other letter after it). So maybe try clicking on the little spanner and checking "About Chrome" in case it updates you?

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 21-Sep-11 07:45:24

yes!!! thank you Suzi! Didnt work earlier this am with my old version, but it did update when I checked the version and now its back to normal. Hooray!

Moanna Wed 21-Sep-11 08:11:41

Mine's not sad

PersonalClown Wed 21-Sep-11 09:45:20

Mine's working now. Try Uninstalling and adding again Moanna.

For some reason mine wouldn't do an update and uninstalling fixed that.

<happy to be back on Chrome>
