Hi, OK,
First try using Internet Explorer and see if there is any differenece.....
The next step may be to consider uninstalling firefox....... close down the computer wait 30 secs with a blank black screen, then restart.......do a disc clean up.....run CCleaner...Available from here:
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
scan for issues on the Registry......make a back up and then examine carefully any items highlighted that refer to firefox and fix them. I suggest you leave alone the rest that do not refer to firefox.......
Next is another close down restart after 30 seconds with a blank black screen and then reinstall firefox.......see if this does the trick.

Hi,

paws has already suggested running CCleaner but try deleting cookies set by this board while using Firefox

Go to the main forum: http://forums.whatth...com/forums.html

On the bottom right corner, click on Delete cookies set by this board

Hi, What exactly happens when you click on ADD REPLY button or create a new topic? Does an error occur, redirects, blank window? Thanks.

it looks exactly as it should do, no error, redirect, blank window. the only thing that is different is that when hovering/clicking the text box (The bit where you type the full message) the cursor doesn't change from Pointer to Text Selection, which in turn means i cannot type but can insert code/quote etc. tags and smileys. If i start a new topic, i can give it a name and description but no first post. Thanks for the time you are putting into this problem. Regards Duey

You could also try uninstalling FireFox then download and reinstall it. If that doesn't help, create a new Account and see if the problem still exists. If not, Copy Your Data from the old to the new account then delete the old account once you are satisfied everything is as it should be.
