Todd.

This white box does not now show, unless I first disable the rich text editor on board settings.

it used to show just last night or very early today.
I am using IE 6, the last (OLd) update of it for Win98SE.

The internet options settings that I have on it, have not been changed since my last post, yet the input pad box for the rich text editor does not come on no more.
My IE settings are set for IE high security, "ACTIVE SCRIPTING" is the only setting enabled, all others are disabled.
But that has always worked just fine.
Do I now have to enable some other settings?

Fernando.

          O.K.
          For a few minutes I re-enabled many of the IE settings, including the Java machine, but that didn't help any, so I changed them all back to my "Normal" settings.
          Thank you anyway.
          Maybe another browser might work a little better, not FireFox 'cause there is no copy and paste on it and I use that feature very heavily, Can Firefox be forced to copy and paste?

          Maybe I should try Opera.

            K-Meleon is working some-what better.

            It is one of my browsers, but only for emergencies

             Now I will try the next one.

              I just tried making another change, so you can try again.

              Yes, there is a way to force Firefox to copy and paste.  You have to change the settings.

                I think it has to do with some browsers have trouble with compression protocols, and most of the time it is caused by a firewall that is blocking it.

                I changed the new editor's compression settings to match the old one's, so I'm hoping that helps.

                  This is FireFox, Works Ok, but no copy and paste.(That is upsetting)

                  The off by one browser didn't work  at all, too bad.

                  I will try next the good old IE, in a second.

                  Thank you again.

                    For AOL users.
                    To clear you AOL cache and history and blocked pop ups
                    if you use the standard tool bar.
                    on your toolbar click settings, click Internet (web options) click Clear My Footprints click Select Footprints to Clear...... there are five check boxes
                    Browser history .....Click this one
                    Cookies caution clicking this one it will remove all your stored passwords and screen names
                    Browser cache ........click this one
                    Blocked Pop-up List .....click this one
                    Recent Searches .... optional mine is disabled as i have it turned on all the time so search history cleaned every time i log off of the Internet
                    Now if you are using AOL's Microsoft Internet Browser i think you have to do it the old fashion way click Start
                    click accessories
                    click system tools
                    click disk cleanup
                    check the boxes be careful not to check anything you don't want to delete.

                      Opera is a little weird and slower it seems like, an older version of it could not handle the rich text editor, but this newer version can PARTIALY use it, it is very slow and unresponsive.

                      IE still has problems with the rich text editor.
                      At least Opera can copy and paste OK.
                      Opera is a no go for LP.
                      So far K-MELEON is still best.
                      Next some other.
                      This browser has a weird effect on the LP'srich's text editor, it only partialy works and not quite right. It is opera 9.02.

                        As I had mentioned above, Firefox can do copy and paste. You need to adjust your settings.

                        If you are having trouble with IE, it is because you have software that is blocking something.  IE works perfectly with Lottery Post.

                            Ah, very good point.  I always forget to ask, "which operating system are you using", even though it's extremely important.

                            Anyone still using Windows 98 should get off it ASAP, as it's not even supported by Microsoft anymore, and Lottery Post therefore does not support it.

                              Also, Windows ME is perhaps even worse than Windows 98.  Windows ME was the absolute worst operating system Microsoft ever produced, which is why it had such a short lifespan.
