Description

8 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0
Build ID: 20110811165603

Steps to reproduce:

navigating deviantart.com to post comments is not possible as the reply/submit buttons won't appear.

tried to use Greasemonkey with script HTMLInsert 


Actual results:

on deviantart.com posting comments is not possible as the reply/submit buttons won't appear in FF7, this might affect other sites, just haven't encountered the issue yet.

For greasemonkey (HTMLInsert) the function simply didn't work.


Expected results:

deviantart.com buttons should appear, to allow interaction.

greasemonkey script should run, it's simply to encase a text selection in a textarea with html by using a set of predefined hotkeys, in this case a combination defined as CTRL+SHIFT+I for italics, etc.
Please try it in the FF safemode : http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode
This looks wfm with Seamonkey trunk but the reporter didn't include exact steps to reproduce.

It was done, that didn't affect the behavior (well of course then the issue with greasemonkey couldn't be tried since the add-on was disabled)

This was on a Windows Vista/64 machine and the FF version was 7.0 French as well.

I have since tried to replicate on a different machine, WinXP ENU and FF 7.0 French and the issue with deviantart didn't appear. The issue with htmlinsert and greasemonkey however was reproduced.

Thank you

Furthermore I confirmed the same behavior on a second machine with Win Vista64 French OS, French FF 7.01 (up from 6.x by way of auto update.)

Thank you
Please post steps to reproduce for your htmlinsert case and really post step by step, starting from a plain Firefox installation.
