What thread is that? At first glance of your post, I'm inclined to say it's not BS... threads are very rarely closed, but when it does happen, it's done so with good reason. After looking over the first page of the Windows 7 section, I see no closed threads, so perhaps you could link me to the one you are talking about?

Even when somebody isn't even logged in, the msg window pops up when you click on add reply.......you only find out you're not logged in, or even registered until you hit the submit button............z

I closed that thread almost 2 weeks ago, And Tom's Hardware works fine in Firefox. I wouldn't be typing this message to you right now otherwise...

It is a bit odd that the forum software lets you compose a reply to a locked thread. On the other hand, you don't have to be too clever to notice that a thread is closed.

"a bit odd?" It's a bug dude.......let's call it what it is.......lololol.

And pray tell.........point out to me where on this page which I got to via Google, there is ANY indication that the thread is closed:

99% of the time when people say Mozilla, they actually mean Firefox. I'm just used to making that assumption.

In either case, it works in the Mozilla suite browser for me... Is there a particular reason you need to use it over Firefox? If there is none, use Firefox instead.

Wow - it's the end of the world, isn't it. Probably best to go and find a friendlier forum.

(The last post in the thread tells you that it's closed - simple really. I presume you did read the thread before deigning to grace us with your words of wisdom?)

It must be the user's fault.;)

The biggest reason I use Mozilla is for the built in EMail client, which stands head and shoulders over ALL OTHER EMail clients.........thing is a work of art when it comes to usability.......nothing else even comes close.

Also Mozilla has other conveniences that they left out of Firefox. For one, when you type into the location bar, it autocompletes. Firefox doesn't. Also the bookmarks are way more convenient. Ctl-B opens a new bookmark window which is nice.

I'm all about efficiency and usability, and Mozilla has that covered to the nth degree. There are more and more websites that I have to use Firefox on.......However Mozilla still works on 95% of the sites I visit......which is amazing considering how old it is...........

Which version of Mozilla lets you log into TH?..........Cause mine generates the JS error posted earlier..........z

I don't care how you slice it..........If a thread is closed and you hit add reply, there should be a message saying it's closed..........not a new post window where one can merrily type their response, and only find out when they click submit that .......oops......gotcha dude.....the thread is closed.....lol.........

Not to mention that one can also click on add reply when they are not even logged in..........z

And you guys should really clean up your CSS......and other erros.....One would think that a site as well respected as TH is would have a clean slate on the error console.......

For people that don't have a clue what I'm talking about, it's Firefox/Tools/Error Console

When it first opens, hit clear, and then do some navigation like log out and log back in, and see how quickly that console fills up with errors...........z

For Ctrl+B, why not just use Ctrl+D?

For Email, Webmail Notifier.

For URL, FireFox also auto completes.

I would use seamonkey, which replaced Mozilla, however I find the name idiotic, and can't see myself using something called seamonkey.

Need to check out Google Chrome and see how convenient it is to use.........z

Blame those errors on BestOfMedia's French admins.

Well at least you now know where it said the thread was closed, so we're making some progress.:) 

How can anyone read through a thread and not notice that the last post in it says "Ok... time to close this one out. I think we've all beat this horse enough to kill it twice." Ah well, all of us who've worked in support have come across users like that.

Firefox does NOT auto complete. It throws up a pulldown box.

In Mozilla for instance if I want to go to Google, I do the following

Alt+D - Highlights the location bar.
G
Enter


That's it. Mozilla fills in Google.com when I type the G........Now that's what I call usability........z

I guess I have to spell it out for you.

You google a problem.

You click on a forum page that looks promising.

You start reading posts.

You read a post that you have a response to

You try to respond. You spend some time and thought on your response.

You hit submit............OOOOOPPPPSSSSSS........the thread is closed.

You start cursing the site..............lol............z

Funny.... you left out the part that says:

"Looked to make sure the thread wasn't locked"

You're making a much bigger deal out of this than is necessary. it takes a whole 3 seconds to make sure the thread is locked. The second column on the main page for each section is there for a reason. A padlock icon would seem to indicate that the thread is locked.

When you read a post it's a courtesy to other users to read the whole thread. That way you don't post a response that someone else has already posted thereby wasting everyone's time.

As an added bonus, which will be particularly useful in your case, you might find that the thread has been closed.
