Are you using KudoZ.net (downloadable tool) or KudoZ (browsing online)? If online, which page are you trying to access (please give a link.) What do you think you should see, and what do you actually see (specific message or image.)

Thanks, Juan!

Similar intermittent glitch on Mac Aug 6, 2003

Hi Juan

I've experienced a similar problem in *posting* my answers from my eMac (OS 9.2 US, IE 5.5 US or whatever it is the latest version, updated about 4 wks ago).

Often (not always) after clicking on Submit answer the window goes blank and IE frezes. When I relaunch it and check the relevant question, the answer has not been posted. If it matters traffic-wise, usually I'm on the Mac at night time (after 10.00 pm, GMT time).

What system are you on? May it be an OS-related bug?

Thanks for any hint

ADDENDUM: Henry asked (and Muja's duly answering:

"Are you using KudoZ.net (downloadable tool) or KudoZ (browsing online)?"
Of course I refer to the online webpages (as KudoZ.net is not mac-friendly)

"If online, which page are you trying to access (please give a link.)"
As I said, it's a rather intermittent bug: the same night, the same connection, one answer goes thru and the following hangs, or the other way round. Sorry, I don't remember any specific issue to provide a link for.

"What do you think you should see, and what do you actually see (specific message or image.)"
I'd expect to see the original question with my answer added to the bottom of the page. There is no error message, just a blank/empty browser page. Personally, I think it has something to do with refreshing the view on my machine after submitting a form, but I'm no techie at all. BTW, the bug is Kudoz-specific: I have never noticed anything like this when posting to a forum or to other web sites.
Thanks again
