Please forgive me if this question has been posted. I really tried to search previous posts, but I had no luck.

When I go to a website and load their message board (, everything loads fine; text is readable and perfect. If I open a post, everything works well. The problem comes when I close the post by using the back button. The original message board loads with garbled text, lines out of place, overlapping, etc. A real mess. Sometimes it can be corrected by hitting the reload button, but most often not.

I know others are using Mozilla on this message board, and they do not have this problem.

I am running windows 2000.

Thanks in advance!!!

I also have a problem with message boards. On IGN boards, whenever I try to make a post, it just sits there loading, and saying "Transferring data from...". I click the link to go to the thread and I find that my post HAS been put up, but it doesn't take me to the "message posted!" screen.

On another board, it randomly double posts, even though I only clicked the button once.

IGN Boards is wiggy for me too, on occasion. Not sure what causes it. Doesn't seem to be related to a specific board.

Occasionally ezboard does it to me, on one of my boards. The board has a black background with light grey text normal text (as apposed to links), but occasionally the light grey is black. I think it may be due to CSS error, but not 100% on that. If anyone wants to look at it, I'll provide a link. The bug seems to occur randomly, but is fixed (usually) by Ctrl-Reload.
