[See title and screenshot]

I was commenting on the post announcing the dotTech exclusive Glary Pro freebie and clicked the “reply” button to one of the posts.

I started to type immediately thereafter and the words showed up above the comment box, as in the “what the **** happened to the comment box?!?!?!” line in the screenshot. Maybe it is an IE-only problem again.

Maybe Mr.Boss make an explanation?

I have no idea what is wrong. Try clearing browser cache and refreshing via Ctrl + F5.

I tried your suggestion and today I tried to comment on the same post again. The same thing happened. Maybe I really should stop using IE to visit dotTech? Frown

I know about it and Portable Firefox. However, I also know that portable version of Firefox takes forever to load [only] at school and always hangs up the machine. I don’t like to use Opera/Chrome. Frown

Soimetimes not. Sometimes IE is better than every browser on the net, as in when you’re visiting Windows Updates Wink. BTW, anyone have a method to uninstall IE? It doesn’t seem possible here.

Only in 7, and I know you’re not using 7 if you access the Windows Update site.

Try portable Opera for school: http://www.opera-usb.com/operausben.htm.  If you “install” it to a folder on the local hdd, it doesn’t take much time to load, and you won’t be locked into IE.

It's me
