Having a problem with the latest version of Firefox, and this also popped up from time to time on the older version as well.

When I respond to a thread, the buttons for bold, alignment, quote, etc don't actually do anything, they just pop me back to the top of the page. Same with the smiliey list.

The add-ons I've installed are Adblock, Downthemall, FasterFox, FlashGot and NoScript, although I've allowed LF on the the NoScript, so it shouldn't be that.

Please help the computer-illiterate.

This happens to me on occasion, but it only seems to do it when I'm trying to use them after previewing. Odd I admit.

However, not sure in your case, but the tags will actually work if it's my first initial composing :confused:

This little extension works wonders however ;)

Make sure you also allow 64.20.36.214 -- that's the static ip of lfnetwork that serves a lot of scripts to you.

@ChAiNz: That little doodad looks cool, too. Which menu applies to LF? Do all of them? And yes, my Commodore64 is really neat-o.

the bbcodeXtra drop menu are the tags that LFnet uses (and Bioware & Obsidian). [vBcode]

I mainly use it if I have multiple quotes in a reply.. makes it a ton easier. But it gets to be secondhand once you use it. Highlight, right-click, select, done.. ;)

Lolz, I was about to recommend the very same thing. A must-have for any vBulletin Forum member. :)

I think i used to have similar problems before on Firefox, especially with versions before 1.5. Most of them were related to javascript or something, but they somehow got ironed out with FF2.

I installed the extension but I do not think that it works. Also, where is the menu for it? I can't find it.

You right-click in a text input field, the extension adds a new entry to the context popup menu.

Nifty. Thanks for the catch.
