I now detest this place. I hate what it looks like with a vengeance, and I'm completely fed up with waiting for it to start working properly.

I'll probably check in from time to time, to see if things ever get mended, but the days of me being a "forum pro" are now over. As things are at present, responding here is too much like hard work, and no fun.

Goodbye, all. Sorry to go.

The problem is IE8. Think about it - which is more likely - that DPR can somehow make youtube unstable or that the problem is an old, problematic browser that is increasingly unstable on modern websites? When you start getting problems with more and more sites will it also be our fault?

That all said, we are aware of the issue using the editor and are working on coding around the problems IE8 produces, including a plain text editor (like you used to have). If you don't like chrome, why not just upgrade to IE9?

Note that for those of us using modern browsers the site 'works properly' already.
