My first attempt at a "blog", whatever that means.

This isn't a complaint in any form or fashion.  I'm just reporting a possible anomoly.  It might be nothing.

I've been noticing the following error in the Quick Reply box.  It pops in there and quickly disappears, so I had to be fast with the screen grab to get it.

It might be just be an issue with Firefox (I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 which has known issues with TinyMCE).

Thought I'd post it in case it relates to any issues that are being worked on.  I hope it helps in some unknown way.  I'm not a JAVA programmer, so I have no idea what it means.

Here's the partial screen grab..

Thanks for this. What I should really do is hide the textarea until the editor initializes. I think that's what you're seeing.

As for the TinyMCE issues with Firefox 3.0.1 - Can you point me to references for that? If there is indeed an issue, I need to make an update a high priority.


Just as an aside; It's a common misconception that java = javascript = jscript. Just for reference (im making big generalizations)..

java = full blown language which is compiled into applications and run in a virtual machine. Java applets run within browsers, but is not the same as the 'javascript' you hear about people writing for their websites.

javascript = a scripting language based on java which is basically interpreted as it's called/used.

jscript = microsoft's take on javascript. has differences with the ecma spec for javascript.

I'm not sure what issues Firefox has with TinyMCE.  There was some chatter when FF3 first came out about tables and having to reset profiles to make everything work correctly.  I was one of the few reluctant ones who left scratch marks on the floor as they dragged us toward the inevitable upgrade. 

TinyMCE was mentioned as the WYSIWYG something or other thingamajig.  I have slightly less knowledge about it than those who claim to have none. 

Sorry, but I also don't have a reference, just a remnant of fading memory.

No worries. I'll look into it anyhow.
