I use Firefox to peruse the forums and post. Often (not always), when I'm creating a new post the formatting options don't respond to mouse clicks. Cannot change font attributes, add links or any such thing at all. This is always accompanied by the "Sizes" dropdown showing up in larger than normal size and overlapping the alignments buttons below (Center and Right Align buttons.)

This is what it looks like: Imgur link that will be a source of frustration to those who come across this post a few months from now, because it will have expired.

As of now, it is not allowing the use of links, or - for that matter - any other formatting button at all.

Lol, I go to reply that I have been experiencing this for quite some time and, lo and behold, the formatting is bugged.

It's not just Firefox - Edge does it as well. It's probably because the scripts that the buttons fire have failed to load for some reason.

JackieKo,

Can we get an update on this issue please? This is a non-trivial matter and obviously doesn't require a patch to be developed for the players to install.

Also can't edit my signature because none of the toolbar buttons work. Is it just me? Tried on Google Chrome & Edge.
