Just found out that anything I do after typing, ie going back and adding a smiley or bold or something, ends up after the entire text. Pretty annoying (but not annoying enough to go back to IE though)

Yeah, that's actually been brought up before (I don't think in its own thread, but within a different thread). The same conclusion was reached. "its a quirk with how Nutscrape interpets code, but still not bad enough to go back to IE.

Hi Sangiro,

this problem is very annoying. Can't you do something about that? What exactly is the problem?

I used to have the same problem with Opera. Latest version(8.52 for Mac) adds the tags in the middle of the text.Cool

I seem to remember trying to write some code that had the same functionality, but the functions needed for it were not ECMA-script standard functions so FF doesn't implement them. I might be wrong, it was quite a while ago.

Use markup code instead of using the clickable smileys and buttons and that problem is solved. A way better solution than going back to IE! Laugh

I do miss the "copy shortcut" link though.

Looks like that part's now working correctly. Now all we need is the "copy shortcut" link.

The "Copy Shortcut" link is not even displayed on Firefox because the forum software is seeing your user agent string as a Firefox browser. If it sees an IE string, it will show the "Copy Shortcut' link. (I confirmed this by changing my user agent string in firefox to reflect an IE9 string, and the link showed up) The reason for this is because Firefox (as well as many other browsers) does not allow access to the systems clipboard.

There ARE ways around it, that shouldn't be too hard to pull off, but frankly, I doubt that the site mgmt would even be interested in 'fixing' it.... and it COULD be a security hole, as it requires a shockwave flash file to make it work. (Break out your foil hats)

Too bad I don't have access to the sites' files, as I would probably fix it just because I miss that damn link too!Mad

No need for flash - it's much simpler than that.

That's another way to skin the cat, but... doubtful that it will be implemented.
