I can enter comments in the comment box while in the Forum, but just after solving a puzzle I cannot type anything in the comment box.

You need to provide more information like what browser you use and its version (usually under Help|About). Also your operating system and version. (Like Windows 7 or OSX). Otherwise Jan will have no idea where to start.

This really didn't need to be new thread. It should have been posted to #440.

Just before this started I had downloaded the newest version of Google Chrome. I have Windows XP. Believe me, I tried to find the first one I posted, apparently #440, but for some reason I couldn't find it. I even logged out and searched the Forum thinking maybe I could find it that way. If I have to pose a new problem I'll be sure and make a note of the number.
Chrome version is 32.0.1687.2

Have you tried other browsers to see if they're also acting up? I'm using Firefox 20 on win 7 and I've had no problems.

There are a few ways to look for something you've posted in the forum. Probably the best way is to choose "All Topics You Have Posted To" from the dropdown list at the top of the forum page.

I haven't had a problem with google until now. I'm not sure I am happy with the new version. But don't know how to go back to the previous version.

Today I had no problem finding the first post, but yesterday....nada.

Hmmmm...I don't have any theories about what would cause this. So when you finish a puzzle and hit the "Read and Make comments" button, you get the little comment window, and there is in comment input box, and you can click on it and a cursor appears there, but when you hit keys nothing appears?

My Chrome is version 30.0.2599.101 and it claims to be up to date. Are you running the Beta version?

Version 32.0.1687.2 dev-m Aura

Google Chrome is up to date.

I don't know if I have the Beta version. The above is what it says when I click on About on the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner. I'm not liking this version. Is there some way I can go back to an earlier version?
Another problem, after I brought up the previous comments, in order to Post this comment I had to hit F11 because the Post box was hidden from view.
I'm wondering if something harmful rode in on the shirttails of the newer Chrome version. Maybe I should just restore to an earlier date.

For the last 3 days after I solve a puzzle I cannot get into the comments box. However I can back out and go to the puzzle list page and then enter comments for that puzzle.

I discovered that somehow the comment box had gotten minimized. When I checked and opened the minimized box it was OK. Also if one was minimized I couldn't comment in the box in the next puzzle I did, so had to open the minimized one and close it so I could comment on the next puzzle.
