I noticed one of my posts was missing a response after the quote. I clicked on edit and the response appeared. I click save and see my my response. I refreshed the page and the my post went missing again. Just happened again. The links I posted in this post have gone missing but I see them when I click edit.

Brought this to Grinler's attention.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

I noticed earlier the smilies were not showing up in my posts, but that appears to be fine now. Before I was offline, the smilies were not there, but after coming back online after being offline for a while, they appear to be back. A bit of a strange occurrence.

I've been noticing the same problem this evenng, but I'm not certain whether or not it's self-inflicted.

 

I was using my old Dell laptop earlier this evening (running Puppy Linux....dual-booting two, in fact), but I've been playing around with global font sizes, so.....I don't know if that's the cause of it.

 

Back on the 'big' Compaq desktop, now (running 8 Pups), and everything's behaving itself. Could need to empty the cache on the Dell, I guess; I have 3 'common' browser installs on a remote partition, sym-linked into both Pups as though they were local installs.....so both Pups are using the same cache for each browser.

 

This thread, in particular:-

 

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/633378/laptop-for-friend-puppy/

 

I'll give John's idea of clearing the browser cache a whirl, and see if that does the trick. I'll get back to you shortly.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

I had links and part of a post missing.  I cleared the cache but they were still missing.  They are there now though.  Just one of those things. :)

We switched to SSL and in doing so I have created a SSL image proxy. This proxy is messing things up. Working on a solution.

Hi, Grinler.

 

The 'browser cache' trick appears to have worked for me. Everything that was 'MIA' is now back where it was. Click'n'Clean has been nagging me to empty the cache for the last week or so, I must confess.....  :lol:

 

All, apparently, sorted.

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Ahhhh. the switch to tls also explains what the cookies remembering my login were going missing.

 

I use firefox, and have it delete cookies on browser close (except for those I explicity allow).. I just did three double-takes that bleepingcomputer.com was still in the allow list. Of course that was for "http://bleepingcomputer.com".. Didn't notice the extra new "s" !

 

Fixed it with another cookie exception, this time for https://bleepingcomputer.com

Let me know if you run into anymore weirdness or if the browser reports that the site is not secure.

We "should" be all set now.
