If hitting the Backspace ( <-- ) key moves you off page, that usually means that your cursor is not in the text input field area. This use of Backspace to go back a page may be a peculiarity of Firefox, and means that you have to be a bit more careful of where the focus is when you hit Backspace.

Add: FF can disable this behavior: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/924490?s=backspace&r=2&e=es&as=s

Thank you :)  I will try that and see if it helps counter my natural clumsiness  ;D

Get PaleMoon. It's Firefox on steroids. ;)

http://www.palemoon.org

The portable version's good.

Have a look at Firefox's settings, particularly the cache/cookies options.

Honey..... I've finally got sick of FF and switched to Pale Moon, but it's the same   I didn't import anything from FF, this forum as well as vB forums I'm on remember my typed text if I hit the back button then forward again, but my forum doesn't.  I don't want to have to use Chrome!!!

Why???  Why??? Why???

It's a plot to get you to use Opera. ;)

*Nova thinks to herself, K@ can keep it (and Opera  ;))

Opera is the only browser my WP blog menu bar looks wrong in, but if I make it look right in Opera it looks wrong in all the others.  If only there were a WP support form as nice and friendly and helpful as this one....

*Nova goes to the fridge for more wine

So come on then, who can fix my text rememory thingy???

Must be you. I looked at your blog with Opera and it looks fine.



It's got to be something squiffy with either your browser's cache, or your forum's, I reckon.

Still, City stuffed United. So, it's not all bad news. ;)

Really?  It isn't floating a little low like in my piccy?

I don't see how there can be a cache problem with a browser I only installed fresh this afternoon... and I'm emptying my forum cache regularly, as all good girls do.

It's making my head hurt....

Nope. Your blog looks perfectly OK.

Little Opera tip...

Tools menu>Preferences>Web pages tab>UNcheck "Fit to width" and set "Page zoom" to 100%.

Thanks K@, I just checked and that's how it's already set

Must be something else, then (God, I'm clever!!)

Get rid of that bottle of girlie stuff and get a hard one inside you, like a JD.

Hic!

That'll help, I feel sure. ;)

Let me check some other settings, for ya. BBL.

Nope. Can't think of anything else.

Have you got a low screen-res, or something?

Mine's only 1024x768, though.

Weirder and weirder...

If you feel adventurous, you could always type "opera:config" in the URL bar and hit "Enter"...

I may have altered something, in there.

I'll see if I can find summat.

Very odd, my Opera is still at the default settings as I don't even use the damn thing except to see how my websites look in different browsers.  My Firefox had a few add-ons but my Pale Moon is fresh on today.
