Default Having a problem with posting

Something changed so that the forum is harder to use. All the buttons on top no longer work. Additionally, if I use a new line, the new line is now ignored so that everything is put all on the same line. Even save and advanced doesn't work if I edit a post. Only hitting edit again gets me to the advanced editor which does save. Is there a setting I can change to fix this? Something change with the forum itself? No longer firefox compatible? Giant wombats attacking the data center and the carriage returns are needed for the great battle?

Did you change anything with your Firefox setup lately? Seems like the JS is malfunctioning.

Is it chance that it has been exactly half a year since April Fools Day?

Considering I'm not having these issues, and I also use Firefox, I'd say yes, it's just chance.
...most likely, any way.

I am now posting with internet explorer and at least the buttons now work.

This is also a test of the 'two lines' problem.

Ok, it does seem to be a 'firefox only' issue. I will investigate from that angle and see if anything did change with my firefox.

I went to the firefox forums and they suggested I clear out all the history including cookies.

This worked and things are working once again.
