Why am I not able to post comments, questions, etc. to Fluther on my sister's computer?

Asked by bea2345 (6056 points ) 3 months ago

For some two weeks, I have been unable to post questions or comments to Fluther using my sister’s computer. She says that there is nothing wrong with her machine (I don’t have a computer these days). I can give Good Answer, Good Question, responses but nothing else. Now I am in a cyber cafĂ©, using a hired machine and I am getting all the responses I need. What is wrong?

When you are on your sister’s computer, are you logged in using your user name and password?

You haven’t provided any information about your sister’s computer. Please provide: OS, browser, and browser version for starters. You will also want to disable plugins/extensions for an initial test.

She probably has Javascript disabled on her browser.

@Wealthadvisor -I am now logged on my sister’s computer using my user name and password (I successfully changed my Fluther password but it did no good).
@hominid -I am using Explorer today. Normally I use Mozilla Firefox. My sister appears to use both Explorer and Mozilla. And you know what, I seem to be OK again. Could it be the browser? My sister’s OS is Windows 7: I have no idea how to verify this because she is out.
@PhiNotPi -When she comes in I will ask her to check. As I am using a guest account and out of courtesy I don’t think I can inspect the machine too deeply.

Thanks to all of you. I would like some more answers. If there is something wrong with Mozilla Firefox, it would be good to know what it is.
