One other thought came to mind. when is the last time you cleared temp files/cache ? That alone can create all sorts of bizarre issues.

One last time to make sure I am doing it the same way you are. Do you do it this way:

1. Highlight the post you want to quote and hit CTRL+C.
2. Do you then use the quick reply box at the bottom of the page or do you hit the red reply button first here????
3. CTRL+V to paste it into the box.
4. Type your reply.

Or do you start with step 2 above (assuming you use the red reply button), then find the post you want to copy from there?
Yes, Highlight what I want to copy, hit CTRL +C and then paste it in the quick reply box and then add my comments.
Then hit the quick reply button but mine is not red...

I think I'm lost here. Why do you copy and paste when you can just hit the "Quote" tab?

Yes sir. Everything I've done on this device since new works perfect. The quote thing is the only problem I've ever had.

Just cleared a boat load of temp files and cookies. Using Firefox (different browser) so here goes a test in the next response
