    The "BACK TO TOP" button , at the bottom of each thread page has stopped working. I am using FIREFOX 3.6, but have also tried it in IE and CHROME, still not working... Is it just on my system or is it malfunctioning for everyone? Is there a setting I need to change someplace? icon_redface.gif

    Mine b0rks randomly as well.

    Same with the submit buttons, approve buttons, etc.

    Something to do with the javascript. One cause I found for this is having recently visited another javascript rich site. Like Facebook or your email. I usually fix it by wiping all cached data and restarting firefox altogether.

    Here's the code for it:

    < div class="backtotopouter">< a class="topictotop lbutton" iname="backtotop" title="BACK TO TOP">< /a>< /div>

    Now, someone please fix it and give it to the webmaster so it can work. I don't know javascript, otherwise I'd do it. (I doctored the code a bit, so it could be seen.)

    Don't you have a "home" key...that does the same thing.

    I'm getting the dreaded javascript:void(0); problem on the Submit button for photos, the Approve button for Photo comments, and all the sidebar buttons (Add to Buddylist, Add to Hotlist, etc.) when viewing someone else's profile.

    This occurs randomly and sometimes it does work.

    Might be purely on our end though. An add-on or something went horribly wrong with my java install on the last update. Will tinker some and report back if I fix it. I dunno if it's purely for Firefox users though. Are the others also using Firefox?

    Sedative,

    javascript:void(0); isn't the issue. That's just a piece of code that goes into the href attribute of a link to tell the browser not to go anywhere when the link is clicked. If those buttons aren't working for you, it means your browser isn't downloading or executing the javascript on the page. I'm not sure why that would be the case but if there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

    Thanks,

    You know, I never even noticed that button? I just don't have that type of environmental awareness. icon_redface.gif

    Yep yep. icon_smile.gif Which is why I'm systematically disabling addons now and updating java. I'll see if that helps.

    Hokay. I figured out what was causing my problems. I should've known really. It was my Norton antivirus trying to forcefeed their version of internet security to me without my knowledge. (I really need to switch to another AV someday soon *sigh*)

    Funny thing is, after I disabled it, pages now load dramatically faster. icon_neutral.gif

    When in doubt, SCROLL UP. LOL.

    Javascript implementations can be a pain. The latest Javascript imps in the browers are a lot stricter, especially with regard to cross domain scripting.

    With regard to anti-virus software, I just yanked Norton off my PC again yesterday. I've had it. I put AVG Free on it, from Grisoft. It works a bunch better, anyway, and it's free, and doesn't suck CPU and memory.

    http://free.avg.com

    Malware guys are exploiting lots of issues, and the browsers have gotten stricter, and the malware / AV programs are scanning more stuff. I've seen many a non-up-to-date computer get hooked off of an exit script from a web page.

    Keep your PC updated. With Grisoft AVG being free, there's no excuse for not having a virus checker. Most importantly don't do business with dirt bags like porn operators.

    I know that the issue has been fixed, but people may want to be aware that certain addon's can cause strange issues. I have found that yahoo toolbar has caused weird things to happen like disabling right click (necessary for firefox spell correction) in text boxes etc. If you have weird problems on pages try disabling add ons or other software (antivirus) temporarily to see if the problem goes away.

    One more thing, you can use the "HOME" button (on IBM type keyboards) to get to the top of a page, and END to get to the bottom of a page quickly

    I never install those toolbars. Yahoo Toolbar, and its highlighting, has always seemed to be problematic. Skype's toolbar is a pain the behind, too. They all take memory and CPU (not that I don't have lots of both :-)
