I'm pretty good with computers.  I use firefox to view this site.  I never use IE unless I have to and I use Opera every now and then.  Its not my bandwidth, its probably an issue with firefox dealing with this site.

Firefox works great with Lottery Post, and is one of the three browsers I recommend (the others being IE7 and Safari).  In fact, it works better and faster than IE, due to all the JavaScript used (Firefox is faster at processing most JavaScript code).

Firefox is also slightly less glitchy than IE7 with presenting properly formatted pages (fewer CSS bugs).

The problem is on your PC.  Maybe you have firewall difficulty -- they lie at the heart of most troubles.

I'm pretty good at computers too.

    Todd, with Firefox I have problem with YESTERDAYS WINNERS page.

    All entries for KENO (long entries) do not wrap and text goes to the right messing with next column. It becomes not readable.

    Entries like MM wrap OK (Mega Ball info is in the next line).

      That is not a problem with Lottery Post.  It is the way Firefox handles fixed-layout tables.  IE7 (and 6) hides the overflow text, and Firefox runs it into the new cell.  That's just the way it is, and there is nothing "bad" or "at fault".  It is wide info, and there is limited space. 

      If you want the "hidden" behavior use IE7.  If you want "overflow" behavior use Firefox.

        Lottery post is one of the best websites I have been to

        I use Firefox browser (I very rarely use IE 6 or 7)

        I visit Lottery post on DSL and Dialup with no problems.

        You may want to try logging in from another location

        And try a better browser.

        You can run both IE 7 and Firefox on the same machine.

        I do with no problems.

        Or even Opera browser.

        Both Firefox and Opera are FREE.

                  I've found that if I click the refresh button on the home page and the pm box is empty, the light goes off.  Try it and see.

                      thanks.. tried that.. It is on every time I log on.. I just ignore it now.. If anyone sends a pm.. I will get it in a week or so if I bother to check it..

                      If goes off from time to time.. then reappears... Nothing there though

                        Ok, i'm finally back after had had to format my PC thanks to the infamous Virus (Worm) Bagle.

                        Now, first off, i want to say that this thread isn't a complaint at this GREAT site at all but rather a kind of bug report... A bug that seem to be still there.

                        I'm Pretty good with computers too, i already checked everything in my PC that could be causing the interference with LP (turn off firewall and Antivirus among other things i did) and nothing made the problem gone, in fact things are worst than when i had my PC infected with the virus! Now no matter how many times i click the refresh button the page won't show up, and even when i hit the indez the page won't show up either, it's as if LP hates me!

                        So since it is not a client side problem it must be either a server side issue or a bug in the site's script.

                        Let's see if this message could be sent...

                        P.S.LP is the only site where i'm having this problem...

                          Is it only with LP or other sites too?

                          Only with LP, that's why i think the problem has to do with either some bug in the Forum's script or the site's server.

                          Let's see what Tood say about it.

                              Clear your cache. Delete history. Set as trusted site. Make sure you are virus free and your virus or pop-up blocker is not messing with the URL etc.. This site is extremely fast, with the exception of authentication it takes about 3 secs. Everything else is very fast, I am on Verizon 1.5Mbs. service. Win2k IE6.  LOL jarasan

                              Hey jarasan, very good advices! Indeed that was the first things i did.

                              And as i said in a post above i had indeed a virus but the virus wasn't the problem actually nor the cache, firewall/antivirus, pop-up blocker were causing interference, i still don't know what the heck it is but since there seems to be i'm already able to make posts again then i assume all is ok now. (i really hope so!)
