Where do you see that blue caret?

Can you attach a screenshot?

  • Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
  • Make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB

Ha, attaching a screen shot is another function in Firefox that does not work. I attached a screen shot to original question and it did not attach.

We will see if this works now. It looks like it attached again.
