I can NOT see the cursor, anymore.

It is tough trying to type without seeing the cursor.

Firefox , can't post

Using Firefox 1.5.02 when I try to post and move my cursor over subject line box or message box the arrow changes to "I" but the flashing cursor does not appear. So impossible to post.

Just started doing this late last night.

That profile business is good, but by the time it loads to see what you have, I forgot what the problem was. At least thats what happens on my end.

Using Firefox 1.5.0.2 on an XP Home SP2 system. Made a post in SE and first noticed it. It is happening now as I type this reply.

There is no text cursor to follow as I type. I have to guess where I am in the process. It is too early in the day to have to think that hard. Wink

I checked my Firefox settings to see if there was something changed due to an update or whatever, but it appears to be a CNET issue. I have not tried using IE as of yet.

Still no cursor.

I am using Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.2

Windows ME

I think it has to do with Mozilla Firefox not seeing the cursor.

Another thing I noticed
by Dragon / April 22, 2006 11:32 AM PDT

If I have my reply box up and I hit "page down", it goes down and immediatly bounces back. Not that it's any big deal, just thought I'd mention it. It doesn't happy elsewhere.

When I login
by PudgyOne / April 21, 2006 7:50 AM PDT
In reply to: I can NOT see

When I login, I see the flashing cursor in the search bar.

I also see the flashing curson on the main directory page, flashing in the search bar.

When I enter a forum it's gone.

When I reply to anything, it's not there. You can see the text as you are typing but you have to guess what you are doing.

It is happening with Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.2
I use Adblock so I don't see the AD above the search bar.

In Internet Explorer (I have to enable scripting) and when I go to reply to a post, I find the cursor in the ad at the top of the page. aroung the price of 1299 or 1399 (can't remember the price)

It's just not flashing. Is it something I accidently changed or is it the forum?


HELP!!!

Jonah has it also. Hope it does not spread.

Rick, I have the cursor on my Safari browser using a Mac.
Must be a virus of some sort for you and Jonah.

Want this instead??

No? Don't blame you. Must be a Mac Virus!

And Rick, I don't believe you because I do not see this a problem. Just use keyboard shortcuts. I do. I jump back four or five posts at a whack!
See my new post on the Forum Feedback. Really neat, now that I know how to control it.
Learning curve is about two months off and on. I hate it!

Before Macintosh invented the mouse, the only way was to use key- commands. How easily we forget. :

Firefox Issue Again?
by taboma / April 21, 2006 4:31 PM PDT
In reply to: I do not have a cursor

Maybe?? That's why I am still running the older version of Firefox V0.7.
Pretty stable for me. The new upgrade has too many bugs in it for me to even bother with it for over the last six months. Not good it seems.
What happens using IE as a browser?

No problem here running Mac OSX and Safari with the curser issue.
Other problems with CNET and their HTML codes.

Looks like bad CSS code
by joesmithers06 / April 23, 2006 7:04 AM PDT
In reply to: I can NOT see

Cnut seems to have been playing with the CSS code that controls the layout, and some change they made seems to be reacting poorly with Firefox 1.5.0.2. I do pity the poor Cnut web developers. IE6's CSS is so broken and incomplete, it's a wonder people can get anything done with it at all. Trying to get a page to look even remotely similar in IE and any standards compliant browser (i.e. all non-IE browsers) is a real pain.

However, a quick once over of the generated source for these pages, it seems the Cnut web developers are ignoring one of the key features of CSS. So key, it's the C in CSS: Cascading. You can create two stylesheets, one for IE, one for standards compliant browsers, and through the use of an IE specific tag, you can let the IE rules override the standards complaint ones where IE's implementation is broken.

It does seem just a little embarrassing, if you ask me, when a self-styled technology leader site can't seem to figure out some of the basics of web design. Kind of shoots what little credibility Cnut has among non-PHB types straight to hell. I know it's a pain, it's why I hate doing web development, but it's just inexcusable for a commercial site. Even more so when it's a site that likes to think itself as the educator of the clueless masses. Makes it look like a case of the blind leading the blind.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
