Quite suddenly today, I have lost access to editing controls in the LFP vBulletin interface. This happened only in Firefox (I'm using v3.5 on this older XP laptop)--everything still works fine in Internet Explorer.
None of the mouse-over commands are present. For example, the little down arrow next to Search is gone, as is the functionality it provides. The MS Office-style formatting controls in the editing window are all there, but clicking on them does nothing. The control-key combinations that invoke those formatting commands (e.g. cntrl-I for italic) has reverted back to the Firefox effect.
Finally, the LFPF logo in the upper left has been replaced by a plain-text link "Large Format Photography Forum", and not the graphical logo.
This happened this afternoon quite suddenly, during a period of very spotty Internet access using a 3G modem in a fringe area.
I have reinstalled Firefox, thinking it got corrupted somehow, but that had no effect. Of course, I rebooted thinking I'd corrupted run code in memory somehow. Again, no effect.
I went to the vBulletin forum to see if there was any discussion of these symptoms, but all the controls in that forum (which presumably shares its code with this one) still work as expected.
Anybody got any ideas?
