If any of you have been using Internet Explorer, have you had any problems posting in the last couple of days? When I try to add a reply to a post, I click on add reply and nothing happens, but if I click on quote a small box drops down on the left side of my screen and shows the post I want to reply to, then I click on cancel the original post disappears and I can add a reply without quoting. If I quote, it adds my post as part of the original post instead of separating them like it's supposed to. I guess I will have to use Google Chrome from now on.Confused

I'm usually on here with Firefox or an Apple device.  No issues for me.

When I'm using my laptop, I have to "Quote" to post, but on my desktop I can just "Add Reply".  I'm not very good with computers so I have no idea what the problem is.

In the future I'll stick with google chrome too. Seems like Internet Explorer always has something wrong with it.

I've been switched to chrome for a while now.  The only thing I ever use IE for nowadays is a program for work that has to have a browser with a microsoft framework.  IE is just unreliable.

IE has gone "anti-gun"…

 

If you use IE try using the search, it will send you all over the place but were you want to go…

 

They put out a statement that they are going to not allow "gun related" searches…

 

It sucks…

Which "search" engine are you using?  Seems like you could just use google or the likes to get around that…..if it's true.

I use Google…

IE controls it though…

I tryed using Bing, same thing happened because IE controls all sights…

I have to figure out how to disable the IE so it doesn't control everything…

Seems odd.  I would try a different browser and see if that helps.  Chrome or Firefox are good options.

The only problem I've had with IE is posting to the forums. To do that I use Google Chrome. I've never had the problem you mentioned with IE not allowing me to go to gun related websites. I use IE to go to Remington,Smith and Wesson, Savage, Browning, and others with no problems.
