I updated the text editor last night, and Firefox users especially may be seeing an error popup alert when they go to a page with the editor on it.

It is simple to fix:

  1. Clear your browser cache.
  2. Close and re-open the browser.

As a reminder, all of this is covered in the Help forum:

    I get the following when I start to post something:

    Object of type 'System.String' cannot be converted to type 'System.Boolean'.

    I am using IE7.  I will try the clearing of the browser cache.  I just wanted you to know this is happening in IE7.

      Clearing the cache did the job!  Thank you, Todd.

        No it didn't!  It is doing it again.

          That error message -- when seen on a page containing the rich text editor -- is always cache related.  I have found that after clearing the cache, restarting the browser helps.  Also, if you're using different web browsrs, each has its own cache that would need to be cleared independently.

            I cleared the cache and it seemed to work after closing IE7.  I closed the browser again, turned the computer off and came back a couple of hours later.  The first time I tried to post anything, I got the message.

              I understand.  Internet Explorer has fairly complex caching, having something to do with the Windows account management system, as well as 32/64 bit differences, for those running a 64-bit environment.  Sometimes it requires more than one go at it, so just hang in there and clear the cache again.

                I will try that later.  It's not really a big deal.  I just check on "OK" on the error message and continue with what I was doing.
