Post subject:  Having trouble with Fire Fox.

When I try and post, I get this strange dialog about font size and such. It wants to know if I want to disable HTML and BB code and things. Anybody know what's going on and how to fix it?

Josh, the first day I switched to Firefox, I had to delete all the cookies. I couldn't even sign in to PWA. You might want to try that (tools -> clear private data) to see if that helps.

I'm not familiar enough with Firefox to be much help .... sorry. Hope you get it fixed soon. Send Kitty a PM if you don't get a better answer soon. She's the resident genius in this stuff.

Ack! I just read where Kitty's on vacation. Sorry, Josh ... it may take a while to get an answer for your problem.

Under the 'View' menu - check and be sure autodetect is off and that the settings there are correct. That may help.

jrc

Edit:

View>Character encoding>autodetect - off

Since I updated Jaws, I haven't had that problem with font settings. I did start getting invalid session messages again, so I set Fire Fox back to its defaults. I posted one other place with no problems. It did it to me again sending a private message, but I pressed submit a different way than I normally do.

That's really odd - I suspect there's some issue with your "Jaws" program, something that Firefox doesn't recognize, for whatever reason.

Have you checked with Jaws tech support about known issues with Firefox? that might be an idea.

Wow - Google lit up when I did a Jaws/Firefox search.

Apparently it's an issue they are aware of - I didn't look into the details, but there's a lot of 'stuff' out about it. I have zero experience with Jaws so it would be a lot more productive for you to check it out most likely.
