    hi,
    this only started last nite
    using Win 7 home, IE 11 on a i5 processor PC
    every time I try to like a post or post to the forum I get error messages

    I am posting this msg using firefox

    trying to like a post gives this error....

    OK at the moment posting/replying to a thread seems to be working again
    but other weird things happening ....

    If I mouse click in the text reply box type a single character it keeps adding lines ( carriage returns) and the text box grows larger .... in fact it doesn't matter what I do in the text box it grows larger even if I hit the delete key

    cheers
    Dave

    Similar thing is happening to me. I posted in the mentor area, and wound up with 3 posts from the one I started.
    I'm noticing the same thing that davenn is reporting. Typing a character (which shows up in Times font now) causes the input box to add aother blank line. Also, numerous POST errors,

    Greg,
    ALL the time .... the problem is constant ( since it started last nite)

    thanks for the confirmation Mark, at least it isn't confined to my PC
    I can still go onto PF with IE and get continuous added lines in the text box
    here in FF its OK

    I have problems as well, the whole layout of the page seems different, like that IE 11 cannot parse the html correctly, menus and buttons are missing or seem to be corrupted and such. Whatever update you did doesnt seem to work with IE11.I can hardly type this message, all sorts of things happening during typing...

    Careful, you'll jinx yourself. :smile:

    I'm not seeing any problems either (and I use both IE and FireFox).
