To be honest, I can't say as yet whether the same problem is occurring there as I have yet to write a post of more than a paragraph or so on here whilst using it. It's only long posts that the problem seems to occur.


Maybe that's God's will. ;-)


Are you saying that with sarcasm, because you John, are obviously an atheist.

You need to scan your PC using your anti virus software. There are a couple of viruses floating around these past few days, according to Microsoft.

It's not virus related. It's been like it a long while.

If I intend to write a longish post, I tend to use a word processor or on mobile, a specialized note-taking app. And then copy and paste.

I just try to be careful with the BB Code. I only have some problems when using the desktop version of mobile browsers. The text slips down in the box. So, I use either mobile style or tapatalk. Never had a problem on the desktop, but still compose outside the browser if it's a longer post. Otherwise, I just end up editing it a million times.

Oh, yeah.

Whatever you think of Google's "world domination," they make slammin' products!

First, the browser is superb.

Next, you have a marvelous and vast choice of apps that are very often cross-platform. And they work with 3rd party app developers like Evernote. You gotta surf with "Clearly"! For any researcher, it's an answer to a prayer.

On my Beast (my laptop ;) ), I have so many cool browser apps! I can send any product to my amazon wish list, from anywhere on the web. Very orderly, and you can make better decisions. The maps are without peer, of course. Chrome-To-Phone sends anything right to your phone! In fact, the cross platform integration is unbeatable.

Long list! Why would I even dream of going back to IE? And I understand Firefox ain't what it used to be. And certainly lacks all these magnificent perks. I only scratched the surface!

Still, I do love Lynx. <3

Hmmm - that Chrome-To-Phone feature sounds intriguing. I've been a Firefox user, but I may need to give Chrome a try.

You're welcome; these apps and features are fun. Some have become necessary. "Clearly" for Evernote has to be experienced!

No apps for me.....I still have not gotten around to buying an I-phone/smartphone. I'm still living in the mid 20th century. Heck, I still use rotary phones......lol

Well, the world needs someone with a reverence for history. (I'm serious.) But I stopped fighting it; this is all too much fun!

I am just bummed that my phone only has 16 gigs of internal memory, and you can't put apps and important data on the sd card. Which means I have a useless 32 gig sd card, and I am running out of space!

I can upgrade in November to keep my current plan. (Which is when the Note 4 will be out! Wahooo! I hope for 64 gigs of internal memory.)

Why the need for more space? MORE APPS!!!
