I'm having an issue - since I think the recent Geekzone forum revamp; where I can't use the google toolbar spell checker, to check my spelling when posting to forums.

Using IE8 / Windows 7 / Google toolbar version 6

Basically when I click the button to spell check, all my test disappears (guessing the fint changes to same colour as background). Click again, my text returns.

Anyone else having this issue? Or can reproduce it?

It seems to still work though for the above subject line.

Have you tried clicking the button and when the text disappear go to the text area, CTRL A and CTRL C then CTRL V to notepad? If there's content then it's probably the toolbar changing the text font colour to be the same as the background.

We haven't changed anything on the site itself that would do it.

I'm always amazed people actually use those google/microsoft/yahoo toolbars.

The humanity....

Yes, it is as you say - the content is still there.

If the content is still there then your toolbar configuration is using the same colours for both font and background... I suggest you change it slightly.

Just checked the quick reply box, and it works for that; so just not working with the full editor.

The full editor uses TinyMCE, but the default empty page has no colour or anything else really.
