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?

Hi everyone,

Sorry that it seemed to have gone wonky again. Tech think they've fixed it now - is anyone still having problems?

I'm using this thread as I can't start a new thread at all.

I've emailed you at the contactus address, but wasn't sure which was quicker.

Anytime I click on start a new thread, it won't let me - it just redirects me to the infamous biscuit page.

I'm running Chrome (latest version) on a windows 7 PC, and I've also tested it on Mozilla Firefox and IE10.

I've also tried it on the mobile site on an iphone using Chrome and Safari.

Please help!

So everyone sorted-ish?

I have not been able to post in IE8 for days. I could until about a week ago. I had to switch to Firefox, but I much prefer IE. When I try to post, it says error on page.

Just to let MN know, IE is working fine for me now. Thanks.

oh, it works now grin

CrispyHedgehogFucker Sat 16-Nov-13 07:54:38

I've been having the same issue.. in Firefox though

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sat 16-Nov-13 07:39:24

veryconfused - it's not lengthy or techy smile It was easy to do and appears to have worked smile

Thanks Kate & Mighty Tech flowers

I pressed the compatibility icon and it has worked. Hurray!

Mine isn't working still. Lost yet another helpful post as I had to switch on tools to IP9. I don't have time or truthfully inclination to repost or read lengthy techie documents.

ChippingInLovesAutumn Tue 12-Nov-13 22:41:48

Right - well, I've done that - I'll report back tomorrow smile

ChippingInLovesAutumn Tue 12-Nov-13 22:11:42

Hi Kate

No - no email (well, not until the one I got telling me you had updated here!), never mind smile

I'll go and have a go now and see how I get on smile

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Nov-13 13:00:56

Right, have consulted with the mighty Tech and apparently you can get around it by disabling compatibility mode.

This handy article explains it far better than I could, so have a bash and shout if you're still stuck.

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Nov-13 12:38:18

Hurrah, glad it's all working(ish)!

Chipping - could've sworn we mailed you about this, but clearly we must not have - v sorry about that!

Not sure about that whole "resetting" thing, will see if Tech have any pearls of wisdom.

I've had to go on Firefox to post. It's a bit of a hassle so I just read mostly now.

I keep on having to redo the F12 thing too.

ChippingInLovesAutumn Mon 11-Nov-13 23:10:43

I don't know - it would be nice if Tech wold come back and let us know!! I'm report this post smile

lisbapalea Mon 11-Nov-13 16:58:35

I am also still having this problem and have to F12 and switch to IE9 (not IE9 Compatability Mode) every time I want to post.

Is this a permanent thing?

NewNameforNewTerm Sat 09-Nov-13 12:14:44

Chipping I'm doing exactly the same. I have to reset F12 everytime I post and I, too, copy my posts before I hit post message, just in case I lose it all!

ChippingInLovesAutumn Sat 09-Nov-13 10:40:39

I'm still having to F12 frequently. I have changed to IE8 this time, I'll see how that goes.

5ft5 - I have been 'copying' any long posts before I try to send them!

lost - I know! I don't know how MN has coped without us??


Guitargirl Fri 08-Nov-13 17:55:23

Woo hoo! Have changed from IE8 compatability to IE8 and it works again! <such a relief, I also thought work had decided to unofficially ban me!>
