    Cannot access pics to post


    Is there a reason why the path box by "Browse" PC is missing on the "Insert Image" in certain threads and/or at certain times? The insert box appears for inserting URL, but not for PC. I've been trying to post pics here: Thoughts on Windows Phone 8?, but it's been 2 days I haven't been able to. It's been happening now and then since joining.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm able to post pics here, but not there.

    Mornin':
    You must be using IE, no? I had the same issue, never looked into it further though.
    I think it may have something to do with the Adobe updates/ActiveX controls, I've had some funny stuff happening here too.
    The 12.0.0.70 update seemed to fix it for me.

    Hi friend,

    I just tested IE11 and Firefox 27 on my Win 8.1 desktop and they both show the insertion paths (from Computer and from URL) correctly. So, if you want to compare your settings for either one of those browsers, I'm available to work here or offline to make the comparisons with you.

    Thanks for responding and the info, guys.

    Yes, "insertion paths". That's the terminology I was looking for!

    Yes, IE11. Strange thing is it doesn't happen but from time to time. I was able to insert here, but not there. I thought maybe I maxed my "Attachments". Cleared a lot of them, but no luck.

    What do you think I should do? I the mean time I'll try again.

    No luck again. I bring it up here and it works, so it can't be IE can it?

    Can you provide a link or a specific instance where it doesn't work so we can test it?
