Preview Overlay Closing Problem

    I've noticed a problem which has cropped up in the last few days.

    When I Reply to a thread, I generally compose my answer and hit the Preview button to check my work before I hit the Post button.

    Everything used to work fine. Now, although the Preview Box opens and I can see my post as it would display, when I close the Preview window, I lose the original thread display, which is replaced with the PF Black Hole page.

    In order to retrieve the original thread, I must hit the Back Button on my browser (FireFox 35.0.1 under Windows 7 Home Premium) in order to return to the original thread. My reply composition is still saved, however, and I can then retrieve it and post, and everything appears to work normally from that point.

    Can someone take a look at this, please? It's very annoying.

    Using Internet Explorer, I do not reproduce your problem.

    Round up the usual suspects. Re-boot. Clear your browser history, your cookies, etc. Refresh the page.

    I can reproduce this. It happens when you click the (X) to close. In the meantime, don't click the (X) in the top right to close the overlay. You can just click off the overlay and it will close without the faulty redirect. Thanks for reporting this.

    Working on a fix for the proper close. Will update when done.

    Nice caterpillar green background on the ToolBar. :biggrin:
