Every single time I click on a link to read something in this forum and then try to go back to the listing, I get a POSTDATA warning dialog from Firefox. Doesn't happen in IE6 or Opera. I hate such dialogs popping up!
This is usually used as a precaution against resubmitting online purchases, etc. It is commonly caused by using POST data in Forms to try to prevent loading from the browser cache. However that should never be used on a forum when just navigating to read posts! The GET command should be used in those instances.
That is very strange because we are using the GET command for reading posts in the forums. Do you have any Firefox addons installed that might be causing a conflict? Since it doesn't happen in IE or Opera, I suspect that something is wrong with your Firefox.
I will try safe mode. It is really weird - I am only seeing them on the forum here, I think. Meaning I don't remember seeing this particular dialog in a long time until I started using this forum.
Toodledo, sorry if you are using GET after all; that was the single reason I could think of for seeing this only here. Goes to show I must not know web site design as well as I had thought!
Though I will check Firefox safe mode, I honestly can't think of any extension I have that would cause this, especially since I am not seeing it on other sites. Plus, that was why I mentioned that I am not seeing it in IE6 nor Opera. I wouldn't expect it to be Firefox only, maybe vice versa.
Another great mystery of Windows? This PC is running XP Pro SP2, all patched up. My notebook is running Vista Ultimate - I'll try it on that tomorrow.
