General discussion

You have some 3 posts in the Windows ME forum which can be caused by using the REFRESH/BACK/FORTH buttons in the browser. Or you are trying to get an answer.

Since finds this discussed with many results and that people that use the refresh button may never see which post has a reply, I make a post like this so they know the issues.

Sorry, first time I tried to correct a spelling mistake, will be more careful next time. I understood there was no search on Cnet forums, it's great to know there is one - like on the old ZDnet forum.

Thanks for info

The duplicate posts are usually some wierd interaction of the Forum software and the browsers. They haven't nailed why or how to fix AFAIK.

My post above was to just bring the refresh button up so you know it can create a new post and the person who does that may wonder why there's never a reply.

If you want to correct your post, here's a suggestion. Just reply to your post with the correction. Making multiple posts is up to you, but which to respond to?

The search is new. So it will take time for people to find and use it.
