Is anybody having problems with buttons on the lists not working? Have tried to delete some books from my lists all afternoon and delete doesn't work. Also on wish list I can't hold or unhold any books.

Tried to send a message to live help to see if they are working on the site and my send message button doesn't work either.

I'm having no problems checking and deleting items on my reminder list.

After Jeanne's post, I tried reminder list delete again...no.

So....when all else fails, the only thing I can think of is to restart my computer. Yes! I don't know what the problem was (everything worked this morning) but the buttons are now working. Beats me, but I sometimes have weird things going on and I don't know if it's because I'm the end of the line from my phone company or what. Sometimes the rural area doesn't have the best service for internet.

At least from Jeanne...I learned the problem was only mine.

Thanks all...Sandy

Sandy, if that happens again, instead of totally re-starting your computer try a hard-refresh - just press down the control key and the F5 key at the same time and release.  That usually fixes the 'stale' or 'stall' page problems for me. Just takes a second, so it's worth a try.

For the future:

hitting "F5" will reload your browser page and that often resolves weird issues like lags

trying a different browser will help to figure out if the issue is really PBS or just your browser.
