I finally found and fixed the other problem some people have been reporting -- a missing Reply button in private messages.
That error was caused by the dreaded IE6. That web browser is becoming a major problem to continue supporting, and this latest problem is a great example of what IE6 users will begin to face -- with NO SOLUTION -- some time in the near future.
It is simply becoming too much effort to continue tracking down these errors that are happening merely because that terrible web browser can't handle what all other modern web browsers can.
At some point, people who don't upgrade their web browser to something else will be left in the dust.
The thing is, it doesn't even require upgrading to IE8. There are alternative solutions for people who are unable to upgrade because they are still running Windows 98 or Windows ME. And those alternative solutions will solve many of the huge security problems IE6 users have just because they're using that browser.
Any IE6 users who wants to see a demonstration of one of the massive security holes in their browser can see it on the special page I created. That page also contains solutions for getting off of IE6, while keeping Windows 98 or Windows ME.
