    Not sure where to put this one - mods feel free to move it.

    I can't reply to any threads in BC - the Quick Reply text box isn't appearing (it tries, but disappears before the page finishes loading), and when I try Reply With Quote my Windows cursor goes into "hourglass mode" and stays that way forever. I can't even send a PM to the mods because the PM text box won't show up!

    Any ideas? Tried clearing cache and cookies...

    I am having problems with Firefox but IE is working alright.

    Somebody pointed out to me the editing features such as bold and underline have disappeared. Not sure what is up.

    Having issues as well on both Firefox and Chrome, on Windows 7."reply with quote" seems to hang.The formatting also seems to be gone. All the line breaks don't work and the text is all lumped together.

    I can use firefox on Mac airbook to access the forum. It has no problems.

    Text box is appearing fine as well as all the formatting options. But on my desktop PC, the reply box doesn't appear.

    The text all lump up together like sentences, when I do updates (Reply with quote). Initially, the text box doesn't appear. So I did an update Adobe flash player, as advised by Kwun. After the updates, the text box appears for editing, but its still read as sentences after clicking submit reply..... is there a problem on either side? is there anything I need to update?

    Update:

    The text boxes now work, but previous replies seem to have lost their formatting. However, embdedded pictures that didn't work previously now do work.

    (Also, the site seems to have been optimised for widescreen monitors:))
