    Can't comment

    Somehow after ( i think ) updating Firefox i can't comment on any RPS article. No error shows after posting, just a refresh of the page and my comment is not posted. Going Back in the browser unfortunately doesn't recall my excellent writing, it's just gone into the void. You've made me sad at least once.

    I cleared all the cookies and logged in again, all scripts on RPS are go. Any idea what else it could be?

    Cheers :)

    Which version of Firefox are you two using?

    Type about:version in the address box if not sure.

    Have you noticed if you're even staying logged in? There was an issue I was having a while back where I would log in, and when I went to make a post, it'd tell me to log in. To my understanding that was pretty much fixed, but figured it might be something to double check.

    I've been having the 'log-in and then I'm not logged in even though I just logged in' problem on Firefox.

    Same here. Usually I must log in again and refresh the page to make it work.

    Apparently we're being banned from commenting on articles without warning or notification. When we post, our comments go into a black hole.

    Um, not fixed for me. Log in a number of times and still no box to comment on stories. No adblocker running, either. Firefox, Windows 7.

    Make sure all your browser caches have been flushed. If Ctrl-F5 doesn't work, try the following:

    OK, I'm seeing a comment box now, but this bit is strange: on the story about Perfectly average 7/10 action games, the second page of comments (by anyone, not just me) are not showing up either in Firefox or IE: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/201...ge-2/#comments

    I last commented when the count was around 110, now it's at 144, yet none of the page 2 comments appear at all.

    Next day: now it's at 166 comments, all (well, the entirely new ones--not replies to other comments appearing on the first page) invisible as far as I can tell. I'm going to check on other stories and see if they also have phantom Page 2's.

    OK, that thread is up to 180 comments now, and none of the second-page ones are showing up. The blog software says that there's a second page of comments, but nope. It's a shame people's responses are going into the void.

    I looked for other stories with tons of comments but couldn't find any that had an official second page of comments, unfortunately.

    I can log in, but I am automatically logged out the moment I click on an article. It's been like this for over a year, firefox and Internet Explorer, caches flushed and not, with updates installed. Sort your comments out RPS!

    Is there any proxy or filter on the network(s) you are using? even home routers can have 'security features' that can interfere with the sites working properly. However, you should notice problems elsewhere, too.

    If that is not the case: can you please PM me your account details? Wordpress username, time and date of the occurrence, and IP.
