Some forum issues might be browser-centric

by MacHugger / February 24, 2006 3:08 AM PST

I'm not certain about this, but I just tried posting something twice from Firefox and it failed HARD twice. It was the whole Page Not Found error that just refuses to take the submit.

I hit the back button, copied my text, opened Safari and pasted my reply into the window there and hit submit and it went through, no problem.

This is not to say I haven't had issues from both browsers with this forum and it might have just been one of those "moments" where our wonderful new forum upgrade bit me in the ****, but I'm starting to raise an eyebrow. Maybe two.

I just had the same hard denial from Safari and it went through successfully with Firefox. So... nevermind.

It's just the crappy new forum downgrade.

... and on a pretty regular basis too. Almost every time I post in the forum, I get that dreaded 'page not found' error. What I've found as a kind of workaround (and to avoid double-posting), is if you hit refresh instead of hitting the back button, you'll see a note in red text that says that your post was not submitted because it is a duplicate of your last post.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
