I've recently started using the latest 3.6.xx Firefox under Win7, coming from a much older version under Win98. Entering a post is now most unpleasant on this particular forum but not changed elsewhere.

What is once keyed cannot be deleted or modified in any way. I can click somewhere earlier in the text I've already entered but anthing entered will still go at the end. The backspace key does not work. The only thing I can do to correct or modify anything is to use the browser refresh buton to completely clear my entry so I can start over.

Is this common? Is it Firefox, Windows 7, what?

Firefox seems to have quirks in forums sometimes. I've had it not let me delete stuff, not let me move the cursor using the Ctrl key etc. I don't know what does it but it's possibly an odd bug in a variety of browsers. I only use FF so can't comment on others (currently 3.6.15 and Win 7 64)
