Alright, can't seem to find my answer searching around here. Hopefully I'm putting this in the right forum.
I'm having some issues with the Message fields on this site when posting or replying to a thread. The textbox is a greyish tint, and I can't seem to see my text cursor or even navigate through the message box with my mouse or arrow keys. This has been an issue with the RC candiates with Firefox as well. Safari works perfectly, and I haven't been able to find similar issues by other people.
I haven't had that issue either. Perhaps you need to completely remove firefox then reinstall it, by completely remove I also mean killing it's preference file, and whatever it left behind under application support folder.
Especially since it sounds like a very localized problem.
Well I'm glad to see I was not the only one having this issue. It is not all message boards that I have a problem with. IN fact it seems to be ehMac only. What happens for me is the cursor essentially disappears and you cannot move your position in a response.
What I fail to understand is why, when Apple provides a perfectly good browser (Safari) with the Mac, why people have to try other browsers.
I have used Safari since inception without issue. Seems to me people bring problems upon themselves needlessly.
Am I missing something by just using Safari? I think not.
As a developer I find FireFox to be far more suited for me especially with plugins like FireBug (which is great for debugging Ajax based scripts). Also its little things that are nice, like being able to right click and choose "view background image" which you can't do in Safari.
Little niche stuff like that. Also I know people complain of the 'look' of FireFox, but that can be changed unlike Safari, I have mine set to lilFox which is a minimalistic theme with no frills.
Also for some common users I haven't seen Safari become as secure as IE or Firefox in regards to phishing scams and stuff like that.
That and adBlock works VERY well in fireFox.
In any case Safari is my second favorite browser behind Firefox.
