Problems responding to polls.

Tags: Off Topic
I've been unable to respond to TR polls for several weeks. I can click the appropriate radio button, but nothing happens when I click the 'Vote' button, nothing happens.

I'm using FF 3.5.3. I am accepting cookies until expiration, including third-party sites. In addition, I have explicitly included techrepublic.com.com as a site allowed to use cookies.

Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

(Yeah, I posted as a Discussion. I'm more interested in bring it to the PTB's attention.)

This is the first I've heard of it, however. This most recent one of mine seems to be accepting answers as it should.

I haven't heard anyone else mention this problem -- most of us use FF, so we're trying to duplicate it. Will let you know...

Is required, apparently. Have you installed Noscript in FF or something like that?

You may have nailed it - I had a similar issue sometime

back, and had problems on some other sites - all on my laptop which uses Win XP - I did an update of Java on it and the problems went away, so it may be a version related issue on the Java.

On my main machine, which has noscript (but TR in the whitelist) and a lot of client side coding deactivated, still runs the polls perfectly.

I wish I could claim it

I have successfully identified the people around here that offer the shortest route to a solution. But at least I know who to ask!
