Anyone else having this problem? In trying to post a book, the bubble with the PBS conditions never shows up, and so the posting never goes through. This never happened to me until yesterday. I have sent feedback about this to PBS but I'd like to know if anyone else is experiencing this.

I would double check to make sure it's not already on your shelf - you might be trying to post a duplicate.  Also, double-check the isbn - search by that number and then click on post this book if it's correct.

Thanks, but that was not the case with the one I posted, and it won't help at all with the WL book I am trying to post to a buddy.

Did you do something to your computer so that it might be blocking the little pop-up?

No, because other bubbles show up for PBS as usual.

ETA I was able to post the book to the member when I used IE instead of Firefox. Strange, it always worked with firefox before.

Anne: 

Do you have Ad Block Plus for your Firefox? If so, it updated for me today and I had to "unblock" it for the posting page as it didn't want to let me post a book either, but once I unblocked the pop-up, the post went through.

Kathy I don't have that but it looks like a good thing to get.
