[solved] aliens chromium - cant edit/delete posts

Installed aliens chromium today - and its generally working well.
However, I _cannot_ edit or delete posts (here on LQ) - the 'spinner' just keeps spinning when I hit the 'edit'-button.
If I use firefox - no such problem.

You're right. I have no explanation for this behaviour.
I tried a User Agent switcher to see if the Chromium useragent triggers it, but there's no difference.



What does work is copying the editing URL into the browser's URL entry field... this edit is the proof.

Edit 2:

Also, double-clicking the Edit button also seems to work.

Also when you mark the forum as read, nothing happens until you refresh the browser.

@alien bob,
Please don't misunderstand me - I am ever so grateful for all your builds, it was meant as a head-ups for something that's not working right.
FYI - 'google-chrome-31.0' does not exhibit this ...

[edit] and you're right - double-clicking the edit-button does it - good enough for me. I'll mark this as 'solved'
