    More information please.

    What OS? What service pack? Is it up-to-date with patches?
    What version of Firefox?
    What version of IE?

    Unable to save

    Win XP SP3 (32-bit)
    Firefox 18.0.2, Java disabled
    IE 7.0 (Java enabled)

    I keep the OS and FF pretty up to date, though this was before I applied this month's batch of Microsoft patches. I have now done so and upgraded to:
    FF 19.0.2
    IE 8.0.6001.18702CO

    ... and the problem has gone away, in FF at least. I am not even going to ask why. We will never know...

    Thanks.

    Sometimes all you need is to copy the post, close the browser, open it, paste the copied contents and you are good to go. It's always very unlikely that such situations arise from forum code issues, it is almost certain that the browser is to blame and restarting will most often solve the issue.
