    Unable to edit post

    Hello, I want to adit this post in the VB6 Codebank and I'm gettting an error.
    (I just modify the "Last update" from "16/Oct/2018" to "29/Oct/2018")

    I'm able to get to the editing screen, but when I press the "Save" button I get an error page from the browser saying that the connection was restarted.

    Another problem: I'm not able to upload an image here. I tried with a txt plain text file (just to test) and it was uploaded fine but when trying with am image file (*.png or *.jpg) the updload selection window always hanged.
    I wanted to post a screenshot of the error message.
    The upload screen hans after I press the "Upload" button.

    I was able to edit the post with Chrome.
    I'll reinstall Firefox and check.

    Edit: I reinstalled Firefox and I still cannot edit that post.
    It worked once, I don't know why once it worked but I get the error all the other times.
    The problem of editing that particular post was solved by using Chrome, but still it seems that there is a problem with FF.

    I'm using Chrome and all is well....

    Go into your profile settings:

    Miscellaneous Options
    Message Editor Interface: and lower this to Basic and see if that helps FF.

    Hello Steve.

    I changed that setting but I get exactly the same results: the error page when trying to edit the post and not being able to upload images here.

    I also tried changing the setting Enhanced Attachment Uploading to off but that didn't help in uploading images either. In fact with that setting off I'm getting an error page when I press the Upload button. So I switched it to on again.

    Not a big problem because it works with Chrome... but still it seems to be a problem with FF.
    I'm not 100% sure the problem is not here because I recently upgraded to Windows 10 1803 but had to roll back to 1709 because there was no way to make the sound system to work.

    But I already uninstalled FF, installed it again (version 63 for Windows 64 bits), refreshed it... In fact I lost all the Add-ons I had installed.
    It seems like it is a new and fresh install of FF but it would be better to confirm the problem by testing from another machine.

    Maybe a couple of other nice people with FF could test this also....

    Re: Unable to edit post

    I can confirm editing is a nightmare with chrome. Either continuous "loading" after saving when the update takes place.

    The most annoying editing a topic is original formatting is lost. You have top copy your work, turn the editor off to source mode and reapply with correct formatting.

    Is any of this going to be sorted? Its almost like the people being paid by you guys are not caring. I feel for you as its out of your hands.

    EDIT: By Steve with Chrome.
