Is this one visible? I've removed the attachment as they aren't usually visible in quotations (I think)?

OK - this is me making the same quote:

Anyone have a fuel tank drain plug spare, from a mild steel tank?

QRG and GW don't stock them anymore due to lack of demand!

Apparently the stainless steel tanks don't have a drain plug.

Alternatively does anyone know what size of screw in plug I would need?

Cheers,

Jez
My Stainless Steel Tank has a drain plug.

The one browser I don't use is Firefox (I use Chrome, IE, Safari) although I'm not at Win10 either.

Well FWIW I've done a reply on that thread, using the quote facility, and it seems to have worked, I tried quoting Busaphill's note and that worked, and Busaphill's earlier note also looks ok. I'm using Firefox on W10 (but it is the normal home edition).

That makes me wonder if it might be some security feature in W10 pro which is hiding the quoted content to protect you from what it "might" contain?

(seems strange that in your screenprint it seems to be showing the "Hi" at the beginning, and the "cheers, Jez" at the end, which I think are just part of the normal quote text, like the missing bit? )

I agree Roger which is why it's baffling me as to why some part shows but not all, I've done the usual cache clear out, reinstalled Firefox to no avail, it's okay in IE which is even more baffling as my PC appears to be functioning okay and securities operating in that okay.

When in the "Post a Reply" page, I can only assume it looks like this (with the text there)?

Like Roger I'm totally confused as to why you seemed to see some of the quoted text and not all of it??

Never seen something like this.
Must be a badly hidden safety feature in Firefox on W10, as it does not seem to appear anywhere else.

Only in the office ... ? Only on Firefox ?

Have you spoken with your office network manager yet ... ? :wink:
