      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Norton Internet Security and AOL

5 posts in this topic

An online friend on another board came up with the following question. Does anyone have an answer or hint or whatever?

 

Ive got a problem. I have Norton Internet Security and Anti Virus. I have AOL which has AOL/Google as a search. I have Internet Explorer 6. Everything is updated. Windows is XP, which is also updated.

My problem is The AOL search will not work while my Norton Internet Security is on. I click on the toolbar search button and the search page comes up. I type in what i want to search for and hit the search button. Then a page comes up "This Page Cannot Be Displayed" but with the NIS off it works.

I go directly to Google or IE or Yahoo and all those searches work fine with no problems. All other web pages work. Ive reinstalled AOL so thats not it. Its something to do with my settings in the Norton Internet security, and I cant figure out what it is. I tried to contact them (NIS) but they are giving me the run around. And it takes 3-4 days each time to get a reply. unless I want to pay for tech help (Screw That)!

Anyone have any ideas?

 

 

Thanks.

I have what appears to be the same problem, only with LiveJournal being the domain I have trouble accessing. Any page on the site comes up with a "page cannot be displayed," but sometimes it works if I refresh several times. Since all other pages work fine, the link mr bones gave wasn't a help (sorry!). I've tried adding LJ's IP address into the Trusted Zone of Norton Personal Firewall's settings, but the issue still occured. Any ideas, anyone? I really don't like having to turn my firewall off while web-surfing, even just for that one domain.. I trust LJ, but who knows what else could try to attack. ¬_¬;
