Well, it isn't the font, it's trying to access forums or threads and getting a pop-up "Quick Navigation" menu instead.  It hadn't been doing this last week.

Did you try the skin changing trick? It worked for DWF, who had the same issue.

If that doesn't work, you may have a crosslinked cache file. Try running scandisk (or equivalent) and *then* trying the skin trick

well _that_ was really weird; i had that quicknav thing; there i was at library, and they have xp pro with ie 8, and reading the forum, and any click on forum page brings up quicknav box instead of what you want; hit any link on the forum list page like the main general media page, click for a topic, and you dont get that, you get quicknav box; i never sign in, always at library i read as guest with no skin, default only; so did not change skins; did the right click thing, so context menu is only thing active and it's Open choice can work, but if context right click menu is not open it will do quicknav instead of what you want, EVEN if you just hit white space on the forum page just to verify Select of the page; any page; hit anywhere on any page, and only thing happens is quicknav; now _That_ . was. weird.

^^^ That was what was happening to me!!!

Only by changing the skin, per your instructions, did it stop.

This is really getting tiresome for me, I still can't copy a link or copy words either for that matter, I've tried just about everything and this problem still persists. I've tried to work around it but I just can't anymore.
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

^^  You've tried ctrl-C and right click, along with the menu buttons, I assume. Have you tried a different browser?

I hadn't checked this thread lately so I clicked on the go to first unread button and it took me to page one post one.  I cliched back, saw that, yes, the go to first unread button was indeed highlighted, clicked on it again and it took me to page two post 21.   :shrug:

Same here!  :oh:  Except before that, I clicked the preview button before clicking on the thread.  Normally it will say how many unread posts there are in a thread, but it didn't, another sign that it thought the whole thing was unread.  :think:

Hmmm. Works fine for me. I clicked it and it took me straight to Nonny's above post.

Perhaps it's a browser issue? I'm using Google Chrome.

You should expect the orange icon to take you to a different post the second time you click it. It's not a hard coded link. I'd expect it looks at your cookies to work out what the last post you viewed was so when you press "back" and do it again it looks it up again and takes you to a different post. If you're seeing the problem quite a lot then I'd check to see if any anti-virus or anti-spyware software is clearing out cookies. C-Cleaner is another program which would regularly do this. I don't know enough about how it works but I'm sure when Orpheus comes here it'd be useful to know if it happens every time, if it's the same thread or forum each time and how often it occurs.

I seem to have broken my fic thread, though I'm not sure how. :(  I can still open and read and post in any other thread on the site, but when I try to open my thread in the Fiction Sub-board, I get an error.  However, if I log out and click on the thread, I can get into it still.

Any ideas what I've done and how I can fix it?  I've tried using different browsers, logging out and back in, and even restarting my computer.

You must have hit the awesomeness limit for a thread. ;) One other thing you can try - disable Javascript. This switches the board over to a more basic mode that might enable you to reply ; I never have Javascript on and I've never had a problem replying anywhere without the fancy WSYIWYG editor. You'll have to format anything with the relevant HTML tags though,even line breaks,but that's a minor issue.

I wonder if that would work by just toggling the editing mode button at the top left of the editing menu.
