This software was created by unpaid volunteers working toward a common goal.  It is not perfect.  Please list any problems you have with specific browsers or versions below.  You are encouraged to post any work-around or solution to the situation.

Internet Explorer Version 6

The Edit command "Alt-Shift-E" doesn't work to start the edit mode on a page.  Click on the "edit" tab at the top of page to start editing.


Internet Explorer Version 8

The Edit command "Alt-Shift-E" doesn't work to start the edit mode on a page.  Click on the "edit" tab at the top of page to start editing.

When adding a link, the link contains garbage after the link text.  Edit the page to remove the garbage text.



FireFox


Using Firefox Context menus

The Keyboard shortcuts for Cut (Ctrl-X), Copy (Ctrl-C), and Paste (Ctrl-V) are enabled by default, but the mouse context menu is not.  The context process does not allow sharing the context menu.  You can either select the Javascript menu (default option) or use the normal FireFox menus.  You cannot have it both ways.  This has side effects and is not recommended because some Table editing and Link operations in the Wiki will be affected.  This options affects all web sites.

On the Firefox browser, Click on "Tools", "Options", "Content" tab.  To the right of the "Enable Javascript" check box, click on "Advanced...", then put a check mark in the "Disable or Replace context menus"

The change this in Firefox, (stopping here to write down the exact procedure)
