Unable to Reply to Messages in Safari 4.0.2

I've been using Safari 4.0.2 (Mac OS X) to reply to messages in the Acrobat and InDesign forums. Suddenly, two days ago, I've lost that ability. (I can still reply in Firefox 3.5.1, so I can post this here.

When I click Reply in Safari, the Post Reply screen appears, and everything is selectable EXCEPT the field for the reply is a small unselectable rectangle. It doesn't show the options for setting font, style, or any of that, and there is no way to type into the field.

I have done nothing to my configuration in the past couple days. Was there a change in Forum Software versions a couple days ago that might have caused this? Any suggestions?

I'm using 4.0. 2  (4530.19) now to reply to you. You must have ticked something in your copy.  Does this Forum system use Javascript? if so maybe you set something in javascript different.

If you can't figure it out. Quit Safari and remove the Preference and or plist file for Safari  trash it and and reopen.

Thanks, Buko. Choosing Empty Cache solved the problem!

Strange behaviour for browser cache. In SeaMokey everything slows down to a crawl when it gets full, but does load. nver really used Safari enough to test its outer limits though.

I have both SeaMonkey and a Safari. In fact I have version 4.02 (latest version) just comparing differences in the way the cache files affect the browsers. (this also could apply to FireFox as well as the code for FireFox and and SeaMonkey are almost the same.)


Does any have a problem bring up Mozilla Products??

No problems using Firefox.  But then I clear my browser caches once a day (CCleaner).

As I've begun to do  that with SeaMonkey.

By the way why all the derision of SeaMonkey? its the same product as Firefox with the addition of the email and news client built in. You don't need two or three applications to do everything you need. And it use less meomery footprint when Firefow and Thunderbird, or Postbox is opened at the same time.

Actually SeaMonkey came first in the form of  Netscape navigator 3.0.1.a, Communicator, Then Mozilla, then finally SeaMonkey. It was only after The product  became Mozilla that the FF and TB projects began as a direct competitor to then MS IE and OE.

BTW: the cat looks almost like my cat except that their is not as much white on the face ans non on the back . just has a white section from neck down
