What's your browser, operating system, versions, contents of posting?
I'm still having the problem with the preview function. I'm using Firefox 126.96.36.199 on Windows XP and it happens regardless of topic, length or content – flattery, sarcasm, dumb puns, even buying drinks. I see the loading wheel spinning, but it never actually loads. If I stop it, I lose everything I've written.
Maybe it thinks I'm so brilliant I should post directly without second thought, but I doubt it.
I'm on Firefox 3.0.4 on XP and can't reproduce your problem. I'll notify Peter. In the meantime, consider updating your browser...?
I agree, the best thing would be to move up to Firefox 3. I recently trouble-shooted several friends' PCs and they were using Firefox 2 and Win XP and could no longer access some websites. This appeared to be after a recent upgrade in Firefox, which judging by the release dates was 188.8.131.52. Upgrading to the current version of Firefox 3 fixed the problems.
Interesting. I just clicked on "check for updates" and it said there were none available. Maybe they're just not available to ME. I'll go to the website. Thanks for the tip.
This is a test of the Firefox 3.0. Damn, it worked! You guys are gods. I wonder why 2.0 never told me there was a 3.0 update. Perhaps that's why there is a 3.0. Thanks everyone.
For some reason Firefox 2.0 just checks for updates along the 2.0 line and it probably updated itself 184.108.40.206 which is what I'm guessing caused your problems... It is strange that they wouldn't automatically encourage people to upgrade to 3.0...
