I was having problems with my wireless connection last night, and this morning I could not connect at all, so I disconnected my wireless modem, and plugged in my old dial-up modem. I had forgotten how infernally slow dial-up was, but once I was able to get logged on and into Blogger, I discovered I had all of my Blogger editing tools back again, and was once again able to post comments on all blogs. The only trouble was, because it was dial-up, it sometimes took several minutes for a page to load in.
I had to go to the dump this afternoon, so I shut everything down, and when I came back I decided to try the wireless connection again. Apparently Verizon fixed whatever was ailing their servers, because I was able to log on without a hitch, but now that I'm back on my wireless connection, my Blogger editing tools are gone again, and once again, I can no longer post comments on any blogs that don't have the pop-up window enabled. This vexes me! I'm using the same computer, and the same Firefox browser that I was using this morning. The only difference is, that this morning I was connecting via a dial-up modem, and now I'm connecting via a wireless modem. Why should that make any difference? How is it possible, that an otherwise fully functioning connection, would prevent me from fully utilizing all of Blogger's functionality? Enquiring minds want to know!
