As the subject states, I'm having trouble searching Geekzone when using Firefox but it works fine in IE. Can someone please have a look at this please Smile

Just tried with Firefox 1.5 and it worked for me. This is an iframe served by Google with the search results. Your PC is probably blocking this somehow (firewall, antivirus, ad blocker).

Yeah, Im using 1.5.0.7...weird. When I type something in and click search, it takes me to another search page that looks like this

Search

If I type something into that box and click search it takes me back to the same page. Not a big deal, just thought I'd mention it.

One last thing...how do you make a link into a hyperlink and insert a pic into the body of the post as you've done there?

Edit: Spelling

FF2 RC3 is fine for everyday use.. It is a release candidate after all.

Also, make sure you have the rich text editor turned on in your profile and it will autolink as you type. Or there is a button for inserting a link and one for a picture
