    I use Safari 99.5% of the time but for kicks I decided to use FF (latest version on Mac) this morning and it has problems with posting in the effect that when I reply to a post or create a post the post window starts off to the far right and a center line shows through the text field box. I can post as long as I remember to scroll to my right. All this makes me want to immediately quit FF and open Safari. Please advise. If this problem goes away I will reply.

    Some here may not have this problem because they are on Windows or an earlier version of MacOSX. Sometimes problems occur on the latest version of OSX (10.9.4), but are not existent on an earlier version as I have experienced before.

    Why is this in the Baptist section?

    Because, Rev Mitchell, using a non-Baptist browser on here obviously gives you posting problems. Duh!
    It's a Firefox issue. You have an extension on there and I forget what it is - it came with one of the updates.
    Easiest way to fix it is with a different browser. Ha! Firefox is getting buggy.

    Is there another place I should have posted it? If so where?

    Probably Chrome. You can play with it to add privacy and stuff, and it works decent with multiple Windows versions without as many errors. You can do that on Firefox, but as you're noticing - it messes up.

    Just beware of the infamous Chrome Kill bug where a plugin or something stops loading and locks up the page. Makes me almost not want to use Chrome again and Google doesn't seem to care.

    Honestly, I've never had that happen to me; nor the >100 people I work with that also use Chrome. I would advise you to disable all add-ons, then re-enable them one at a time, to get a feel for which add-on or combination of add-ons causes the problem.

    Thanks for that. However the fix is just to use Safari.

    I tried FireFox a few years ago and it was just totally eat up with problems with no apparent way to make it work properly. I switched to google. No problem what-so-ever.

    You use safari on your iOS device so why not on your computer? It's awesome on the Mac.
