Okay here is my issue, When using FF (3.5.9 & 3.6.3) on different computers I have an issue when creating posts on forums eg new topic or a reply. On the main text box where the content is put I can enter text I can delete text, But not a selectable delete. For example if I wanted to delete Posts I would have to delete everything to the word posts. I can not select any content, I cant use the mouse to jump around in the text. The blinking type bar is missing during the whole time.

This only happens when in full edit/create topic/reply post, If I use the quick edit & reply I don't have this issue.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure, if my question was very clear...
Do you have very same issue on any other website, other than GeeksToGo?

Hmmm....

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?

Alright tried firefox in safe mode and still had the issue. I guess I can try reinstall FireFox and see if that fixes the problem.
