Hi,

The message about the problem was from 2010. I am not sure why I am getting so many questions about a problem that was so long ago, I forgot that this ever was a problem. And no, I am not having that problem anymore. Is there that big a backlog of unanswered questions about problems?
Flags: needinfo?(pathlesstraveled)
Probably should have checked the date first :/ Thanks Melissa!

Just standard courtesy to ask, even though it's an old bug. :)
An accident that two of us asked at the same time.
