I’m having some serious issues with the default text input window for making posts.
I am using the latest version of Firefox (3.6.13)
My big issues are:
1. I can’t copy and paste. It says something about my browser security settings not allowing it but this is the only forum (or any webpage at all) that I have this issue.
2. Blinking text cursor disappears. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it isn’t. But when the cursor disappears it becomes basically impossible to type anything. I will click a certain area of the text window, where I want to type additional text, but when I start typing it will start typing at the beginning of the entire post instead of where I clicked.
3. Can’t highlight and delete text. This seems to be related to the disappearing cursor, but when I select a line of text and attempt to delete it, it behaves like I never had any text selected in the first place and will either just delete a single character wherever the invisible cursor happens to be or it won’t do anything at all.
Pretty much the only way I’ve found to actually make these boards usable is to type every single post I make into Microsoft Word and then paste it into the text box once it’s finished. (CTRL-V works even though normal right-click copy/paste functions do not).
I visit over a dozen different forums on a daily basis. These issues are unique to Head-Fi. So what’s the deal?
