I have been using Firefox (for the Mac) now to access Psych Central. I notice something -- not sure whether it is PC or Firefox that does it -- when I use the quote icon, the cursor gets inserted after the last "/quote", rather than in between "quote" and "/quote" -- which makes no sense. I have to manually remove the quoted text from where Firefox puts it and insert it into the correct place.

Another peculiarity I notice with Firefox is that when I enter a <Return> at the end of a paragraph, Firefox enters two. I seem to notice that in others' posts too. Here is an example of what I mean:

I see this when reading with Firefox and also with Safari. I find that rather surprising.


(Notice the paragraph spacing in this [my] post? )

In addition, Firefox treats the Quote feature quite differently than Safari does, using a quote from outside of Psych Central. I am surprised.

Hmm, interesting issue.

I don't use Mac but I use Firefox so maybe I can think of something.

Do you have any addons installed on Firefox? If so, which ones?

Also, which version of Firefox are you using? Is it up to date?

I don't know of any addons.



Latest version of Firefox (64.0) according to "About Firefox".

Maybe try cleaning your browser cache and cookies?


You can do both under settings.


If that doesn't work, than the only other thing I can think of would be to either reinstall Firefox or switch to a different browser.

The reason I tried Firefox is that the latest version of Safari was freezing on me.

Something has changed with Psych Central, or the new Apple software. It seems to get indigestion here.

It seems like the issue may be either with your computer itself or with your internet connection. Even though I don't use apple products all that much, I have enough knowledge to confirm that the issue isn't with Psych Central. If it was than users across all operating systems and not just apple users. I am on Psych Central under a Firefox browser with several addons using Windows 10, yet this site is as responsive as it's ever been for me.


I would say see if the issue is with your internet connection first. First, try visiting other websites to confirm if this problem occurs anywhere else. Afterwards, try running a speed test. Just search internet speed test to find out the speed and latency of your internet connection. If you have high latency or slow speeds that might be part of the problem.


If your internet isn't the problem, the only other thing that could possibly be wrong is something with your computer itself.

No, this is the only place I have such problems. And that only after upgrading my operating system to "Mojave". I surmise that, in the case of Firefox, it is interpreting some of the Psych Central code incorrectly -- certainly the part about the quoting. Or maybe the code itself is dicey.

Try rolling back the operating system updates.


I know there is an option in Windows there should be one in MacOS somewhere.


Alternatively, try Googling the issue and see if somebody else was having the same problem and found a fix for it.
