    Having a couple issues first i can only type at the begining of the reply box. I can not quote someone and get the cursor under their quote. Matter of fact there is no cursor at all.

    (strange I can do everything as normal in private messages) When you click on the reply and the box comes up to type i can only type starting from the begining. And generally there is a cursor on the screen showing where your typing and thats gone. Say I quoted you I wouldnt be able to put the cursor under your quote and type there I can only type from the top. Also If I highlight the text and try using the delete button it does nothing. I can only delete using the backspace. Has to be something with my account cause Im on a differant cpu and its doing the same thing.

    ahh I see. Are you sure you haven't got 'Hide cursor while typing' enabled on your PCs?

    edit: nvm you said it happened on iphone as well... try what sausagehead said, record it using cam studio.

    that's strange... sounds like something's happened on GBAtemp, does anyone know of any updates that have occurred that may have affected this?

    BTW, what version of Firefox were you using? I just tried v5 (Aurora) and i'm having no problems.

    Gonna update firefox now. Back to the iphone I can use fast reply just fine but not the full reply. Quite funky.

    When adding a reply, please press the button that looks like the picture below once. It should toggle the edit mode for replies to the correct one.

    I'm using Firefox / Windows XP and got exactly the same problem as Rogue_Ninja. And this method really solved the problem. Thanks so much.
