I've recently switched to Firefox as my default web browser (due to some really annoying and really difficult to remove spyware), and frankly, it's great. BUT I have a problem: When I highlight some text in a post, and hit any of the buttons below (bold, spoiler, etc...), it just doesn't respond, and thus I can't add the tags if I don't add them manually, which gets pretty boring after 4 spoiler tags straight in the same post. So, my question is: Is there a way for the buttons to work with this browser?

Thanks for the replies!

Actually, I've been wondering about this too.

Doesn't work for me either. .. =(

But you can drag the button into the window and the javascript code will come up... or you can type [*b][*/b] ...without the stars, and just put the text inbetween...

It's a pain though =)

I've been using Firefox for a while now and I noticed that, but I always figured it was because he buttons were broke.

OK, so, basically, everyone has the same issue, but none knows for a way to fix it (if any). Great.

Let me check on it since the highlight script uses IE proprietary code. Meanwhile, if anyone can point me to a site that has something similar but works on FF, that'll be great.

I noticed it, and figured it was me. I also can't highlight the professor's tag's clothes away :\

I've noticed this problem a long time ago. I think I even mentioned it once. But yes, please fix it Prof. And for anyone else that does web development-- never use proprietary code, whether its IE or something else. Stick to web standards PLEASE.





Go buy the new Warlock series by Marvel. It is good support this title!

For what it's worth, the buttons didn't work in Opera 7 (haven't tried 8) either. I figured it was due to Opera's... incompatibility with the way people use things like Javascript and such.

Testing it right now shows that the buttons don't work with Camino (a Mac browser that uses the Mozilla rendering engine).

*shrug* I just got used to writing the tags in myself from other boards without handy-dandy buttons.

Can't help you either but you can always get rid of spyware no matter how bothersome.

Thank you very much for the advice: I've already posted my log there, and I'm hopefully in the process to delete that damned CWS spyware.

Same here, but I also use the BBxtra Extension which lets you do it quite easily and has a very large compatibility with boards including this one.
