1. Well, let's see. I'm on a Mac:



Actually mine are working better than ever. They were scrolling up out of reach. Do you have ada, or anything like that slowing you down?

We may need a Windows person to help. Good luck.

2. Can you describe the problem a little more?

There are some known problems with smilies being created with some formatting; is that your problem?

If it's not, it never hurts to clear cache nd delete cookies!

3. It seems to have righted itself

For future reference, could you tell me how to provide a screenshot in a post? I've forgotten. Thanks!

4. Screenshots:

Mac: Control + Shift + 3

iOS Devices (iPhone, iPad) Home + On/Off button quickly

Windows:
Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled .
Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
Type a file name for the image.

6. imgur.com is much easier to use (can be used with or without a free account)

And there's a couple of super handy mobile apps for it too, like imgur uploader.

But yes - it needs to be uploaded to a website/photo sharing site and hot linked. See my profile for my hot linked .sig pic coding.

10. Well, my default is always

Clear cache and delete cookies!

It looks like an Exploder setting issue, but it's been so long since I've used IE I'm not really competent to say for sure
