All I am able to do is a quick edit.

I've never been able to replicate this bug. I just used the "reply" at the bottom of the page now.

However, the next set of updates this week comes with some bug fixes.

If this doesn't go away Wed, can I get more information? Browser type?

Same here, for some time now. Get "Sorry, this thread doesn't exist

Back to previous page"
Now the scrollig threads have gone as well! I will have to consider finding other sites!

Basic Browser / OS info.

Also, if you're using the UK version of the forums, could you try logging into the US version?

Still happens for me on Opera 9.27 running on Ubuntu 7.10 via the UK site. No fancy script blocking or the like, just a plain Opera install. I still have to quote :(

Update - just tried via the US login (posting from that site now) and I get the same problem. One thing I would add is that I don't yet see the new updates on the UK site, only the US one. Sorry Tom's team but you don't seem to have this one fixed yet... A word of advice to UK users trying to test via the US site. Log out of the UK one before trying to log into the US one. My CPU usage maxed out and I had to force quit opera, kill the UK login and then login to the US before things were right. I've also noticed that my profile is not displaying under my pic, only Ombudsman's is.


If you want some other tests running drop me a PM. I've got a few other browser / OS combinations I can test from if it will help.

To Ombudsman,
As you can see from the lack of a quote the issue seems to have resolved itself. I dont know if you did anything your end but i havent so much as updated a driver this end. I just decided to try a standard reply it and it seem ok now.
Thanks for the help all the same.
