Hi Anonymous

Could you give more information on the exact problems you are having?

I use Firefox to access the hotseat myself and I have not noticed any problems. If you let me know what exactly how it is malfunctioning I will hopefully be able to help you fix it.

When I ask a question it  gives an error - something like "Characters exceeded, maximum 8000" - which is weird because the questions aren't long.

I have been having this error for a while on my laptop so today I tried on a UCT computer using Firefox and the same error came up then I tried Chrome and I was able to post my question as well as report this error.

In short, try asking a question and upload a document with it using Firefox and see if you also have an issue.

Hi I have just posted a question with an attached document and it worked fine.

How big is the document you uploaded with your question?
