What is wrong with the new Software?? When I make an edit of my original posting, 4 postings of the same appeared on the board at once?!!!

    It looks like you've been experiencing quite a few duplication issues. If you run Firefox in safe mode (ie, with all add-ons disabled) are you still seeing this happen? Alternatively, is it possible that the button that submits your post is being clicked multiple times before the page reloads?

      Hi Charles.

      It looks like you're using Windows 7 and Firefox? And when you say "edit my original posting" are you talking about editing a new discussion you started, or a reply to an existing discussion?

      I was unable to duplicate this on our end using Windows 7 and Firefox, and editing a reply to an existing discussion. So any other info you can provide might be helpful in pinpointing the issue.

        Yes, I am using Windows 7 and Firefox.
        After posting my original discussion, I noticed some error with it and therefore tried correcting them by hitting the edit button to get back in and make the changes. By re-posting the revised text somehow triggered this weird event?!
        Fellow Cher Klyeoh, apparently experienced the same but instead of 4 duplication only got 2?!

          Hm, I also wasn't able to reproduce any duplication issues with editing an original post. Hopefully the info on safe mode that was posted by one of our engineers is helpful.
