Glenda it is working now...

I assume you are using IE9 or IExx.

We just fixed this.

Do a browser SHIFT + refresh and the submission for replies should open now.

Sorry about that!

So am I
by Jimmy Greystone / March 15, 2012 6:07 AM PDT

So am I the only Firefox user that seems to be having problems?

Things were working this morning, then I come back a little later, and all forum buttons are unresponsive.

So I tried logging out and now I can't get logged back in. If I try using an automated login extension I get an error page about the XML document not having any style information with it. I try entering in the info manually, and when I hit the submit button the form goes away but I'm not logged in.

I've dumped my cache, deleted cookies, tried disabling AdBlock Plus and NoScript, restarting FF... Nothing's helped. Since others were having issues, I'm going to guess it's related. It seems like changes you guys introduce into the forum code, from time to time, have the ability to poison things with Firefox that I have yet to work out how to fix short of a fresh profile. This isn't the first time, and it's always just Cnet sites that are affected. All other sites keep working just fine.

It's still working for me. You already cleared cache, could you try Shift + refresh?

It was a problem on Chrome and IE earlier, but once we realized it was a problem, we immediately addressed it.

Please give the browser refresh a try and let us know if it still not working for you.

We do apologize for the troubles.

I tried that
by Jimmy Greystone / March 15, 2012 8:26 AM PDT

I tried that, and still no go. I even closed the browser out, manually deleted the cache files, and then started the browser again with no luck. Since all shift + reload does is force it to get a new copy off the server instead of use the cache, deleting the cache should have done the trick. Testing with a new profile, and now things work again.

Not sure what it is you guys do, but somehow you manage to introduce poison code that kills FF profiles. This is absolutely the second time this has happened, and it ONLY ever affects Cnet sites, and always seems to correspond with you guys rolling out some kind of change.
