I'm using Microsoft Internet explorer, and I can see the box and type in it, but when I try to preview or post, nothing happens.

How can this be fixed?

Tried on Internet Explorer and it didn't work. Trying on Firefox now to see if this works.

I don't seem to have a tools on my Internet Explorer. So it's Firefox for the time being.

Interesting as my browser mode said it was in IE9 so I didn't think clicking on that would change anything but it did, thanks

we can hear you wetaugust


Although I lost it again and had to reset.

Hmmm.. browser reverted to IE10, just had to change it back to IE9. Velly strange.

I just clicked on the 'compatibility view' icon on the right hand side of the address bar. (Looks like jagged torn paper or saw teeth).

That seems to have done the job (on IE9).

SlightlyDampWellies Thu 07-Nov-13 09:03:32

Yes I have to keep changing it back too.

I am still using Firefox. I did get someone to try the test above for me, but it didnt seem to work.

Have I told you lately that I love you???

I have been exchanging emails with MN for days about this - no joy.

It would have been nice if they'd have pointed me in the direction of this thread yesterday!!

Still - happy happy happy happy to be back grin

I had to change IE9 compatability to plain IE9, thanks CanadianJohn xxx
