Do you have an idea when this first started? Are you sure you're not talking about the Search function, instead of the PM?

Hello, The Gorilla

Sorry, but I have to ask,

Are you giving it a subject?

Billy no problems - first thing I checked.

Garmanma - no idea when it started, been trying since 1130 uk time. Definately the PM system.

Hmmmmmm. It would appear the problem only occurs when using the new Opera browser. No problems when using FF.

Strange as I used this very browser the other day without problems.

So this is working fine for you on other browsers, but when using the new Opera you get the bug? If so, there is nothing I can do for now.

Grinler - That's correct.

Opera allows me to reply but not send - latest version. I will try again later to see.

I had this happen a while back myself. I am a dedicated Opera user as well. I used Atribunes ATF Cleaner and resolved the problem. I don't know for a fact what the problem was. But a full ATF cleaning and machine restart resolved the issue for me.

What version are you using? The 9.5 beta or 9.27?

I am using version 9.5. I use ATF Cleaner on a regular basis. Seem's to be an intermitant problem. I have noticed that on other forums it forgets who I am if I tab to another page - but again not all the time.

Could be just a common bug, try restarting, see if that helps.

I just confirmed this is a 9.5 problem and intermittent as stated. I upgraded to 9.5 last night and it's happening to me as well. Annoying thing that it is. But very intermittent.

Note: Grinler has an IPB forum software upgrade on the schedule. No firm date as of yet that I'm aware of. That may resolve this issue. As there is a Ff 3 bug as well being reported here at BC.
