    Missing Reply Box

    Help please :)

    Tech Guy said :

    All I need is for someone to provide errors from their browser console when this happens and we should be able to narrow down the issue

    Just a screenshot from their browser console showing the missing reply box

    Using the browser console | WickedlySmart

    that page will tell people how to open the console on just about any browser/OS combination

    classy, I'd be happy to help (if/when it happens, which it has been doing on and off for awhile now). Unfortunately, from what I see on the Console, it's far too big (too long) to screen capture it.

    Hmmmm.

    What is your console showing in it? It should be pretty much empty most of the time. here is mine for reference:

    If there is anything relevant it'll most likely be in red text :)

    I get that a lot too. I've found that by hitting F5, it usually shows up.

    Two things: Firstly, I'm consistently getting the Reply Box today, and secondly, I'm wondering if I'm not accessing the Console properly.

    I reach it by the 3 dot menu, then More Tools, Developer Tools (Chrome Version 63.0.3239.108). Sound correct?

    Me too, Rick, but it's inconsistent and one shouldn't have to refresh the page.

    Yep! But by default that takes you to the Elements tab, you just need to click on "Console" to get to the right place :)

    It's happened here a lot for me.

    System: Windows 7 Professional
    Browser: Chrome Version 62.0.3202.94 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    I'll post the info if I see it happen again, although usually, I use the F5 method.

    Informational: Missing reply box has never occurred in my Slimjet.
    If using this browser, and if encountering "missing reply box", you can find the developer console:
    Click ----> Menu --> More tools --> Developer tools
