Unable to post with alternative browsers

to Admin:

Can only post using IE [v6.0.200.1106] (which I am using for this post). FYI, I am signed in prior to trying to post.

Cannot post (even tho signed in) using the following alternative browsers (post message area does not accept characters tho title area does allow entry)
> Mozilla v 1.7.2 - windows (Win2K SP4) version and linux version
> Firefox v 1.0RC2 - linux version

FYI, default cookie settings in Mozilla and Firefox are session only except for selected sites.

tried following tests with no success (still cannot post)
> In Mozilla, changed cookie settings to allow permanent cookies from discusscooking.com [close browser - load browser - verified that DC now sets permanent cookies]
> In Mozilla, changed user agent to IE6.0 WinXP (using prefbar plugin for Mozilla)

=================
My browser of choice is Mozilla. I avoidIE b/c of security concerns and the necessity for frequent patching. Prior to the switch to vBulletin, I had no problems using Moz and/or Firefox under either OS.

I hope this can be fixed soon.TIA

This is actually a know issue that is being worked on. There is a work around for now. If you click on "Quick Links" then "Edit Options" then scroll to the very bottom you will see an option for Message Editor Interface (it is the very last thing on the page). For now if you change it to anything other than Enhanced Interface then it will work. I actually posted this from Firefox.

I am posting with Opera 6.05.

No Java.

Suggest you try turning it off if it is enabled.

Thanks GB. Much appreciated. Worked like a charm. :-)

Tears of blood on the keyboard definitely didn't work . Am using Firefox also. :-)

I bagged a mate of mine for using it. He some how convinced me to give it a try. So help me, if I ever use IE again, you can come over and kick my ****. Firefox is so much quicker, user friendly and, well just so much better.

BTW. The site updates are really good, you guys should be proud of what you've achieved.

I think you guys might have talked me into Firefox - anything that I could possibly use by converting? I know on the old site there was instructions - care to post them again please?
