I just switched to using Firefox instead of Netscape, and I tried to reply to a post here & it said:

Anyone know how to fix this? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif" alt="" />

Very strange, did you try logging out and back in using firefox?

Firefox is all I ever use here without an issue.

It is a forum error or a server error? (Is it surrounded by the normal Scrap Yard layout)

Try these:

In firefox, go to Tools and try clearing your Private Data, such as Cache and Cookies.

Right click on a mozilla firefox icon on your desktop, and try running as Administrator.

Are you running Windows XP? If so, you might have Service Pack 3 (SP3), it's been having a lot of issues with 3rd party software. You can uninstall it from Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs.

Forum error, with the Scrap Yard layout. I just upgraded to the 3.5 version of firefox. I was holding on to Netscape, but I got tired of it locking up on me. Right now though, the only way I can post is if I use Netscape instead. I tried logging out and back in, and it still did it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Mine did that for a few days but it turned out to be a cookie issue showing as a forum issue.

Again I tried emptying the cache & cookies. I even tried rebooting. It's still doing it. Here's what it looks like when I try:

I had TOR installed (but not enabled) & thought maybe that was doing it, but I uninstalled it before rebooting, and it didn't help.

*sigh* I should have just Googled it first. The problem was Zone Alarm removing private header information. Fixed now. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Cool. I am glad you got it fixed. I was going to say that I use FF and XP with SP 3 without any issues so it was most likely a configuration issue. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
