I'm at a loss - I just tested the "Request new password" process and the email arrived within 15 seconds.
I'll merge your new account with your old now.
Everyone else - please let me know if you encounter any email problems. We did experience a significant email DOS attack early this week, and the next day a server DOS attack. I thought I had dealt successfully with the attacks, but maybe not, so please let me know if you experience any problems by posting to this thread. Thanks.
I'm unable to duplicate the failure in IE 8.06. Do you still get the same failures after clicking on "Reload"?
IE is still the most popular browser out there, and solving problems like this is very important, so if "reload" doesn't fix the problem then if you have time and could provide additional information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Have an EvC Forum message displayed that you're going to reply to, but don't click on the reply button yet.
Click on Tools=>Internet Options, then click on the Security tab, then on "Custom Level..." Scroll way down near the bottom to Active Scripting and click Disable, then click on OK on the inner dialog, then on OK again on the outer dialog.
Click on Reload.
Click on the reply button for the message.
Click on preview.
Let me know if it worked or not and you saw the preview of your (empty) reply. If it worked then I know how to fix it. If it didn't work then I'll figure out something else to try next. Thanks for your help!
Remember to go back and reenable active scripting.
Just noticed that on my faulty platform the menu buttons are different.
This one has Profile, Essential Links, FAQ etc on one line in blue background for the words only.
On my errant box this shows as Profile (blue background for word only) centered on one line, then Essential Links centered in a blue background that stretches across the entire screen on the second line, then the FAQ, etc. on a third line blue background for the words only.
Thanks for finding this. I ran a couple simple tests and I don't believe I can fix this. In compatibility mode IE8 will not let you replace the mouse click handler for <button>'s with your own handler.
Compatibility mode describes itself as being for old websites that don't display properly, saying that turning on compatibility mode may fix this. But the website displays fine without compatibility mode, so I'm going to close this issue. Thanks again for the help, you and AZPaul3.
