Text box missing?!

Anyone have problems with their text box missing? It's gone from any firefox browser. I am unable to post in threads but i can enter text in PMs.

I get the same results on firefox in LinuxMint and in Win7.

This was posted using the GarageTalk app.

Cheers,
George

UPDATE: The problem only occurs with Firefox on Linux. Firefox on Win7 now works; this post was made using Firefox in Win7. However, the Win7 version started to work after the browser updated to v60.0. I need to double/tripple check the Linux version again. This is very strange! I wonder if there were some updates to this website's code behind the scenes that squelched text entry on other platforms?

Final update: There appeared to be a conflict with ad blockers and this site. It's weird because the settings for the ad blockers remained unchanged when this problem began. I had to disable ublock origin and AdBlock for this website in order to get the Quick Reply (text box) to reappear. I suspect some sort of background change to the site caused this problem to materialize. Has anyone else experienced this?

FWIW, I also use the same ad blockers on Firefox for Win7 but did not have to disable it.

Cheers,
George
