suddenly the edit function doesn't work, so I have to leave all my mispellings and glaring typos out there for all the world to see.

Also, when you quote a post with a quote, the main post doesn't come up in a quote box. It used to be that both the quote and the quoted post would be in the box.

testing the edit function with another browser--seems to work

Nothing has changed as far as I am aware and the quote feature just worked for me when I used it.


And it is allowing me to edit as well.

Works for me too. Try it again. Just added this line by using the edit function.

Well, I found the answer -- the recent update I downloaded to my Firefox Internet interface seems to have messed up the edit function. It's messing with a few of my email functions, too.

Odd-- I find Mozilla Firefox is usually far superior to Microsoft's Internet Explorer on most counts, somebody must have goofed on this last update.
