OK, been going round and round with this one. Looking for ideas here.

For whatever reason I am unable to post a link in posts of a favorite online forum I frequent. I click the little add url icon and a window comes up asking for the link. I enter it and click OK, the window disappears but nothing appears in the post. Adding text or pictures, modifying a post, etc, no problem. Every other feature on the forum works for me.

Forum Admin thinks it has something to do with Java. However I AM able to post links in other forums. I've also refreshed my Firefox with no improvements.

I can go with Explorer (not Edge) and have no trouble posting a link which suggests it has nothing to do with any other aspect of my machine.

OS is Win 10 current version. Firefox is also current version.

The security software on this forum prevents some from posting links unless an administrator okays it. Have you tried to manually enter the link?
