Cannot post or reply on some forums using FF 8.0 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi

I am unable to post a new message or reply to a posting on all Flight1 forums (LevelD, Mustang, Ultimate Traffic, SimForums in any section of said forums although I am signed in and am permitted to post in the appropriate forums as a valid member and purchaser of Flight1 products (LevelD, Mustang,GEX, Ultimate Terrain, Ultimate Traffic).

I have no problems and have tested other forums such as Avsim, Orbx, Simviation or any other forums except the above.
I have previously been able to post and reply to messages on Flight1 forums.
Naturally as can be seen I can post a message on this forum.
All I get when I attempt to reply, create a new message or attempt to send a PM (as I attempted to do today is this):

The message box area(not defined by border) is greyed out and nowhere to post message or will any typing be accepted.
Have tried deleting forum cookies but problem remains. Cleaned caches. Uninstalled/re-installed Ver 8.00 and a couple of previous versions. Cleaned registry manually of Firefox and Mozilla remnants.

Internet Explorer allows me to post, reply or PM without any problems, but not FireFox or as I just tried, PaleMoon browser.
The software used on these forums is Bulletin Board Software by Web Wiz ForumsĀ® version 9.69.

I have posted this message on Firefox forum but really no constructive solution provided.

Your assistance/advice would be appreciated.

PROBLEM SOLVED

Received a reply from board Admin on a Flight1 forum and apart from his confusion that my problem was with IE and not FF, he suggested "turn off the WYSIWYG editor" in my control panel. Did so on all Flight1 forums and message box like this one appears and I again have the ability to reply to and post new topics.
How WYSIWYG editor was turned on in the first place is anyone's guess. Certainly not by me. What software would do this on a recently formatted system or is it a fault in the forum software they are using?

Maybe Mozilla can follow up with Web Wiz ForumsĀ® to see if it is a problem in their software.
