Still can't post/reply using firefox on the site since the takeover. What gives?

I can sign in, surf threads, "like" posts, etc.


If I type out a reply and hit "reply", nothing. This has been for forever, now. Sucks. I hate using IE and it's kept me scarce here as of late.


I use firefox with noscript to block ads and pop-ups and such, but for whatever reason, since new owners can't post using it. No problem until then. Figured it would be fixed by now, but nope. Just tried.


Strange.

And as an aside, in IE it's PAINFULLY slow, lags, my text lags as I type and the pages are slow, etc.


Forgot that part until just now as I'm looking around and posting in IE.


It's not pleasant to surf in IE and I can't post using firefox. Sucks, because I love this site.

Site not loading properly because of long-running script, "stop script?", stuff like that happening now as I surf. Just noting stuff that makes me not use IE here and I still visit, use firefox, but it means I don't really participate as much from a posting/replying standpoint. Clunky as hell in IE for me.


I have a decent machine and do not encounter this on the handful of other forums I frequent, either. Firefox with noscript works like a dream.

During some upgrades 64 bit FF had issues on my PC.
I went to 32 bit and all was good.
I am surprised to see I am using the 64 bit again.
I am not using an ad blocker and do not have any issues with ads..
I do not see any ads...

FF 59.0.2 64 bit

I am using the "Quick reply" window below the last posted on window..
Also using "Post Quick Reply" button on the bottom of the window..

I just remembered I used to have your problem after the vtxoa site upgraded.
C-Spike told me to use "Quick Reply" and I have since then..

I have used FF for a long time now and it still works here for me. After one of the FF updates I started having issues on other sites. It would not display certain parts of the page or fail to load. I switched back to Chrome for the time being.

'04 1300S or at least used to be.

I don't use NoScript, but everything seems to work as it should. IE is dead, I wouldn't use it at all. I use FF x64 but I'm on the ESR version (currently 52.7.3). I like this better because my addons are more likely to be updated. Generally all problems are resolved by the time ESR advances.

You can get FF ESR here;

You could use Chrome, but I have issue with their privacy policy. A good alternative is Chromium. Works like Chrome but doesn't have all of the Google spy stuff in it. They keep that stuff out of the open source version because they don't want people to now what's in there.

Testing again

Can't recreate yet. Just to make sure, have you cleared cookies at all recently? Might be worth a try if you haven't.

Otherwise, have you tried disabling your Firefox extras temporarily to see if you can post again?
