Smilies not working...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
this has been going on for awhile - I can't use smilies - wondering what I can do to fix it. I have rebooted and cleared my cache, etc with no change.

What browser are you using? Have you recently updated it?

I use Internet Explorer. I have no clue what version it is. How would I find out? We have auto-update on our computer if that makes a difference.

I'm on Firefox, and had trouble with Quick Reply and the Smilie box a while back. It worked again for about a month, but it's out for me again.

I can use smilies only if I know the code to type. They don't click next to my reply box. Even if I open the full smilie page, none will show up.

Same here but I am using FF and it's apparently a big issue for FF users on MDC. I refuse to go back to IE (6.0, where I am able to see the smilies) though. Makes for some very confusing posts when people use smilies in place of words, lol.

You might try updating to IE 7.0 and see if that helps

Yeah, I can see everything, it just doesn't respond when I click on certain buttons. The menu bar works, the Reply button and New Thread buttons work, but multiquote, Quick Reply, and smilies don't work.

Its fine on Safari, but I really would rather use FF.

I'm using Mozilla with no problems at all. It sounds like a computer problem, not a browser problem.

I finally updated to IE 7.0 and I still cannot use smilies... I can't figure out what happened because I used to use them no problem. Any additional suggestions for me?

Could you try deleting your cookies and clearing your cache?

Maybe disable your firewall for a sec and look? Maybe your settings are funny?

Cleared temp files and cookies and no luck.
The firewall thing I know nothing about and will have to talk to DH about it. I'll post back about it eventually, but it will probably be a few weeks. He's heading into finals at school...
