When I (left) click on "View more smilies", it's dead - nothing happens. ](*,)

I can see the complete list, with the extras, only when I right click on that text - and do "Open Link in New Tab".

There will be shown one of two pages of smilies along the top, with choices of which page to go to (1/2).

Then I right click again the (missing) smiley I want, and pick "Inspect Element (Q)".

The php codes for the smilies will display at the bottom of the screen.

I manually type in the code in this message compose box (since I can't Copy and Paste it in here).

This is really a bunch of work. Does anybody have any idea what's going on? :-k

I reckon, through your extensions you told it to block popups. So....it's blocking popups.

something is blocking - if no ad-blocker then maybe another installed antivirus than windows defender

So this is where my post went. Makes sense, given the advice/info below... Thanks.

Don't worry: I'm not about to unleash a plague of smilies in posts. I just couldn't access a different one, that I really wanted.

Well, this computer has Adblocker, and, I think, Windows Defender - and possibly others - will check.
:idea: That would explain things, then. I wonder if there's any specific way of allowing a "friendly" thing like this? :?:

I have also now had problems using the mZ Forum post list function - and signing in. I wonder if there's any connection? :-k

I was going to mention, I haven't had this problem before. But that was before the above two types of things were installed.

Or maybe my computer doesn't like php code? Don't think so; I'm on another phpBB forum; not aware of having these problems.

Your next step is to try SafeMode to narrow down the cause. The link explains what safemode does - http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
