    Default Can't use the enter key in IE

    I updated my IE browser and now can't get the enter key to work for me when I post a message. When I use Firefox I don't have this problem but I'm usually on IE so it would be nice if I didn't have swap browers to post. Cindy

    Cindy,

    You are talking about using your "Enter" key simply to move down a line (such as for a paragraph space?)

    I'm in I.E. now and not having any issues. I haven't heard of any similar complaints from other users but will definitely keep looking. To compare, I tested in Firefox also and again did not experience any problems.

    Can you try clearing your cached files / cookies / history and then reboot your computer to see if that helps? (You will have to log in again through the homepage and navigate back to here to test.)

    The only other possible solution would be to insure you have the latest updates of I.E. installed on your computer. If you are still experiencing this issue can you let me know what version you are using now? (You can get that information by clicking on the "Help" button at the top left of your browser, then "About Internet Explorer."

    I'm sorry you are dealing with this! Certainly it sounds frustrating! Hopefully one of these solutions will work for you!

    It's a known issue with the latest version of IE (10 I think) and a few versions of vBulliten. Lots of people on other forums I frequent are having the same issue. Either IE/Microsoft needs to fix it, or vBulliten needs to release a patch. I don't know the status of it at this time. I believe most users are just moving to Chrome or Firefox in the meantime, as it could be a while.

    Missy - Yes to hit enter for a paragraph space. I've had this problem on my husbands laptop for over a month but didn't have it happen on my normal computer until I updated it. I'll just use Firefox for the time being.
