Updating..

Post by Syl on Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:31 pm

Does anyone else find when their laptops have updated themselves they don't work as efficiently?
Mine took ages to update, since then the pages keep freezing. 

I have lost 2 posts today....and they were marvellous ones.

I had that once...I think its some over zealous anti virus thingy giving false warnings.

I am crossing my fingers the pages don't freeze up before I press send now....I HATE it when updates cause problems.

Does anyone have advice on how I can get my colours ...or my blocks etc to act properly?? Rolling Eyes

To get them to work I have to press the last little icon of a page of text, then press the color I want....and even then it has a mind of its own.

Inaflap ALWAYS shows as an untrustworthy site, with trojan horses embedded. That is both on Kaspersky and Avast.
But we knew Dyk has spybots embedded into it, that is how he can identiffy your ip , computer system and browser.

This happens sometimes with some anti-virus software. I get it happening on my laptop but never on an apple product.

I am on windows 10 too Cass. Most of the time its OK, but when it does a long update I sometimes get odd problems afterwards.
I usually manage to work round them, but its a nuisance.

1. Firefox, which is NON PROFIT MAKING, is best browser overall, in my experience. Plus it discourages ads too. Dunno what I'd do without it.


2. Chrome  badgers you aggressively for personal info, and allegedly has malware issues.


3. Microsoft edge is very quick to disable flash and youtube. It is slow, sulky, belligerent and generally hard work, I find.

Amazing that these browsers have such human traits!!  They certainly have very different 'personalities' from each other.


If you don't choose all the options they keep recommending, and dance to their tune, some definitely sulk. No

Ok...when you are writing out a post you see lots of little icons above it...starting with a bold B and ending with a sheet of paper...(at least that's how I see them) if you want to emphasis a point, or colour some text in for eg, I have always just highlighted what I need to emphasise, then simply clicked on the appropriate icon, and its worked.
Now it doesn't.

Click the icon first then write your text in the middle of it. Are you on a laptop?

Check the very far end box, switch editor mode.

Is it greyed out?

just worked for me
using the write then highlight method.

I'm using internet explorer on this device which is normally the worst at this, so don't know why  it isn't working for you.

I'm on Microsoft edge.

I can now do it but first I have to click the end icon first, (switch editor mode

It will only highlight one line at a time, I cant highlight a complete paragraph or more. scratch

It has something to do with that I'm sure, I cant work it out though.

this is when its highlighted.

This is when it is not.
But I can only emphasis one line at a time.
I mean after I have already written the post btw....when I want to go back and highlight something.

I didn't manage to sort out the problem above....I now have to write in [ b] before a post and [ /b] at the end of a post if I want to highlight it in black.....like this

I now have a new problem, my cursor keeps jumping.

I'm telling you, chuck it out of the window and chop it up with an axe and set fire to it.

You'll feel so much better.

One strange problem with IE/Microsoft Edge is that sometimes when you select some text for highlighting, you then find that you cannot un-select it. No matter what you do to cancel out the highlight, the block of text stubbornly remains highlighted. Grrrr!

The only way to proceed is to try to highlight the entire page .... then reverse the process.
OR, close the page down .... then reopen it and start all over again.

Anyway, I mentioned my jumping cursor to the so called Technical advisor in pc world....she had never heard of such a thing. Rolling Eyes
Suggested I bring the laptop in which will cost me £60 for them to take a look...and extra for the parts it may need.

I bet its something really simple too. Mad

Perhaps there's a little piece of Pringle stuck in there? Happened to me once.

My Curser has been jumping around for a few days now,, but only on here and flap. My son said hold down f10 for a minute , I tried it and it worked a couple of times but went back to jumping again. It seems ok now though. Does it jump on all sites, or like mine,just on Fix and Flap?
