Wierd problem when trying to post replies I'm guessing this is just me, since I'm not seeing it mentioned anywhere else, but, when I click to post a reply, more often than not, the text box and all of the smiley buttons etc appear briefly and then disappear. I'm left with a blank area the same size as the text boxes and options I'd expect to see. The rest of the page displays fine and looks as expected. I have to keep trying the post reply button and eventually the text boxes stay.
Anyone else seen an issue like this before? Any other suggestions? I'm using IE 7 (this isn't my machine and I can't change the browser). It all works fine on my smartphone using Opera, so I'm guessing it's something specific to this machine.
As a semi-related aside, I've also been finding that browsing posts in Unforums actually crashes my Android phone (an HTC Hero) when I use the stock browser. I can view the basic forum layout fine, but when I try to open a post, my phone reboots. This doesn't happen if I use Opera - everything works fine then.

This happens to me only on my computer at work. So I attributed the problem to the firewall or old browser (it started after the last forum upgrade).

As an aside, for anyone still using IE7, I'd recommend upgrading to IE8 if possible (and use compatibility mode if desired or necessary).

I've had good luck with
MojoPac when changes aren't allowed on the computer available.
It runs straight off the USB, doesn't have the U3 issues other portable options have and doesn't install any of its virtualization components on the host. Hell, it even runs off a MicroSD in a usb adaptor without affecting existing files/applications already on the card.
ETA: Before upgrading to IE8, search around for problems people have had with it on your hardware/software. Immediately after rebooting it on a netbook install I did, the video and audio response slowed to a "jittery" crawl and after trying for 2 weeks to figure it out, I had to reimage the machine to fix it.
I'm telling you now, so you can't say, "Oh, I didn't know...Nobody told me!"
