PBS is hating me today.  Or my browser is.  One of them.  When I try to submit updates in Firefox, I get as far as the "Are you sure..." box and when I click in the affirmative, it downloads a PHP file to my computer.  Wild and crazy assumption is that it should be OPENING said PHP file, not downloading it to my computer.  But that's not all.

Opened IE in desperation and when I get to the same point, I get "Page cannot be displayed".  If I try to click submit changes but actually don't MAKE any changes, it works perfectly.  ::eyeroll::

My patience on this is sort of strained - I'm throwing away several hundred books and I'm willing to post the covers and details, but it would be soooo much easier if the site wasn't fighting with me, lol.  Anyone else having issues?

Firefox is doing that a lot to me too today, particularly from within the BOB pages.

I've been having issues on all three sites where I click to go to the next page (in a thread, to a PM, transfer a credit) and I get a blank page and Firefox says 'Done' at the bottom.

So, is it Firefox or the site?  If the OP also had issues with IE, I'd guess the site.  I know at least one person who has sent in feedback.

There have been reports of the site being glitchy all day. You could try tomorrow.

I've been having problems too.  I use IE 7 at home and at work IE 6 (yes, I check at work ;-))  I'm having problems both places so I know it's not my computer or my Internet connection.
