    Forum search unresponsive


    I've tried this more than once. I allow or temporarily allow all with No Script. I white-listed the forum in Adblock Plus. Still nothing. The search function doesn't work.

    Now using Firefox 39. It's been the exact same way through several versions of Firefox. And please don't say to try IE or Chrome. I don't like Chrome and absolutely despise IE. Since version 8, I still have phalanges left over when I count the number of times I've used that nightmare of a browser. LOL!

    TIA

    It will be caused by one of your blocking scripts, try using the advanced search link on the navbar instaed.

    Like the boss said. But you should really "whitelist" any forums you belong to because otherwise it reduces the ability to use certain functions as cookies and on site tracking cookies(HTTP cookie) are tools to get around and use a website.

    The only things that Ghostrery and NoScript are blocking is Google Anylitics. AdBlock Plus is disabled for the forum. I have no other blocking software installed. Firefox accepts 3rd party cookies (I clean them out with CCleaner).

    Had just marked this as solved. My bad. I did start Firefox in safe mode, then the search worked as it's supposed to. Regular mode it doesn't.

    Google Analytics is why the search doesn't work If you allow it here, search works. Give it a try. A Guy
