wordpress using Ubuntu Natty Narwhal

    I am using wordpress on Ubuntu Natty Narwhal with firefox and openjava and I am not able to use the editor to make a post. There are bugs like:
    - You are not able to add a tag. The Add-botton does not respond.
    - You are not able to add pictures.
    - You are not able to add videos. (for both the same: Nothing happens after hitting the button.)

    This occured suddenly. Before, everything worked. I did not change my system.

    However. Please use less Java. This seems to me to be the problem. From the programming with java, I know that you should always use the newest version of java and of course the sun/oracle release. But in my point of view this is against the independency of platforms. If you create a website, you should be able to use it with every browser.

    The blog I need help with is thestupidnerdymuellguy.wordpress.com.

  2. This is a peer support forum where Volunteers ie. fellow bloggers answer support questions. I'm on windows XP using Firefox 7.01. and I can do everything you say you cannot do.

    How are you connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com? The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers.

    Are you using http:// or https:// see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    Which browser and version of it are you using? Have your tried clearing your browser cache and cookies? http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clear-your-cache-and-cookies

    Is your browser version up to date? You can upgrade any browser version here.
    http://browsehappy.com/

    Do you have third party cookies enabled? Do you have another browser you can try?

    You can use this link to see if your Flash is up to date. http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ If it’s not up to date then this is where to download and install the latest version of Flash. http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

    If you would like to communicate with Staff then here's the link. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.

    > How are you connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com?
    Via a permanent line. At the moment it is working fine.

    > Are you using http:// or https://
    Usually https:// and for theses services of course https://.

    > Which browser and version of it are you using? Have your tried clearing your browser cache and cookies?
    Firefox 7.0.1. Cookies and cache are deleted each time i close the browser.

    > Is your browser version up to date?
    Yeah... it's the same you are using.

    > Do you have third party cookies enabled? Do you have another browser you can try?
    All kind of Cookies are enabled. It works with the Google Chromium Browser, I just found out. (But I do not want to use it. I guess Chromium uses its own java and flash.)

    > You can use this link to see if your Flash is up to date. ...
    In this case it is a java problem. Nothing happends if I am clicking on the links. And the links are java, not flash.

    > If you would like to communicate with Staff then here's the link.
    Oh thank you for your help! I had been on this website but did not see that they closed the support for the weekend.
    I searched once, but I did not find anything. So here is my post.
    Thanks for your help!

    Hopefully somebody has this problem who uses also linux.

  4. Hello again,
    If another Volunteer cannot help you then you will have to submit a support ticket to Staff open again early Monday, October 10th (UTC).
