Frustrating since some of these take a bit of time. I kicked myself for not using Word and then cut and pasting into the AirForums window. It precludes exactly what you noted.

I have moved to Chrome and haven't had much of a problem. Too bad, I like Firefox.
Before hitting "Review" I do a CTRL-A (Select All) and CTRL-C (Copy). Easy to do and saves the contents of the post in case anything goes wrong. My biggest problem has been AirForums not responding, presumably when it is busy.

Re: Chrome, when I tried it a year or so ago it loaded up my machine with components that my antivirus objected to. When I tried to remove it it left components behind that I could not uninstall or delete. I don't want an app that is that invasive and pervasive.

that Mozilla didn't "protect" family values when they forced their CEO out in 2014 for giving a donation to a pro-family movement in California.

. . . and then, some believe it is criminal.

I'm right there with you on that one.....
I still use Firefox under Ubuntu OS mainly because it is a good browser..... and it's not MS, and it's not Google.

I googled water fox what came up for down load is 64 bit not 32 bit so some can not use.

I use FF and have not had the problem.
Garry,
I don't get a 'keep me signed in box' I get a 'remember me' check box.

Anyway, my sign-in lasts only minutes. Oftentimes I can't even get a reply typed and it has kicked me out and then refreshing is a joke.

I thought it was an Airstream Forum problem. I'm going to try different browsers.

You are blessed my friend.

I get kicked out before I can preview a reply.
