Fingers of Fury!

Hi!  Here's a shot-in-the-dark to solving a perplexing issue that I'm seeing.  In short, I'm not able to use all the features of my Wysiwyg editor when I post or edit a topic on my site's forums.

The long:
My computer has been updated this week.  It required that I upgrade my OS, so now I'm running Windows 7 (previous Vista).  And with that came IE.  But, I'm not fond of that so I got Firefox downloaded and running.  After mucking around, I got my guildportal site up ( and looked it over.  Everything's in order, time to post raid guide video threads!  Open a new thread, grab videos, post, and then I go to edit my text to correct errors and add some color.   I go to make the sub-titles Heading instead of Normal.  Nope, it doesn't take.  I add color.  It looks like it works, but post the edit and nope, it doesn't take.  Back and forth, now nothing appears to be working aside from basic text.  I open IE... the videos don't show; something with Adobe not being up to date.  Different issue, but who knows.  I open the editor and I can change the style and the color, and seems to work.  I closed that up and headed back to Firefox, and looked it over, the style and color edits are good but now there's odd spaces.  I open the editor, add a couple more videos, delete a bunch of extraneous returns, but nothing takes still on the color or style.

Anyone got a clue where the settings might be different?  Or, more to the point, how do I set this so that color and style work?  BTW, when I tried to make the word color in purple, it didn't take here, either.

Hello there!

Thanks for letting us know. I've verified what you're reporting and I have a support ticket in with the control's vendor. I did a little surfing around while there, and I did find a couple things that suggest Firefox 3.6 is being... a little wonky with editable iframes (the box you type in while using the editor). There's a good chance the control vendor will provide a fix even if it is a Firefox bug, though.
