"In place" message edit doesn't work


Hello.

It appears that "in-place" text editor doesn't work anymore in Firefox 3.0.1 on slackware 12.1. Works in opera 9.52. "Doesn't work" means that editor appears, but when I press "save", "uploading" icon appears, rotates forever and then nothing happens. Problem appeared during last 24 hours. Unsure if it is local issue or a site problem, but decided to report it anyway.

I had the same issue with 3.0.1, although it was sporadic. The work-around was to click the "Stop" button on the toolbar, then click "Save" again. Always worked the second time.

BTW- the problem was solved in 3.0.3. Maybe you should upgrade.

Cheers

I'm not able to reproduce this. Is it happening to anyone that's upgraded to 3.0.3?

Hi, Jeremy~

I do believe that this may be a Firefox issue in version 3.0.1. It certainly wasn't site-specific, at least not for me. At any given moment, regardless of what I was attempting, FF would sporadically choke. Halting and then re-executing the command always fixed the problem. I've had no issues whatsoever anywhere since upgrading to 3.0.3. Also, it never happened before upgrading from 3.0 to 3.0.1.

Hope this helps...

Cheers

I didn't have that problem anywhere until it appeared on LQ several days ago. Oh well, I'll probably upgrade my browser eventually.
