PROBLEMS WITH COMMENTING

Dear blogging friends,
There are several blogs I follow and comment on a regular basis but I have become frustrated with the comments section of some of your blogs.  Anyone that has the "select profile" drop down box, where you choose from a list of ways to identify yourself will NOT let me use my my usual google account button.  I have composed so many comments only to have them go blank when I try to enter them.  On some blogs it will let me leave an anonymous comment, but not everyone's will let me even do that.

I am especially concerned that some blogs I have commented consistently on might think I don't follow them anymore.  Two that come to mind are Dawn at Momza's and Saimi at My Dog Archie. 

If anyone has a solution I would love to hear about it.

Thanks,
Connie

I've heard some people have to use another browser to look at blogs. Like use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. In fact, I was having a problem with something and started using Firefox and the problem went away.

I've had a lot of problems with some of those same blogs and I love to comment. When I can't it frustrates me to no end! I have no answer other than I log into my google account first thing then I go visit blogs and usually I don't have problems. When I've tried to go to the blog first then tried to leave a comment I lose the comment while I have to go log it. I wish there was just a standardized method that everyone use *sigh*

I followed the advice of a blogger friend that told me to go into my comment section on blogger and do the following....

Dashboard
Settings
Comments
Click Pop-Up Window
Then Save Settings

I think this enabled You (connie) to now comment on my blog. Hope this helps someone.

Hi Connie, I've had the same problems, it's very frustrating. I also had problems doing posts.
I too read somewhere that it's to do with Internet explorer (5?), and using Firefox works better. Sigh!
Wish IE would sort out the problem.

I have the same problem with some blogs. I have found that if I do not check that box when I am signing in that says "Stay signed it" then for some reason it lets me comment but if that box is checked then it won't. Weird stuff!

I had no idea that this was a problem. I'll look into it on my end. Thanks for letting me know, Connie!

I was having this trouble too.
I finally searched on the internet and found a solution.
Just use the Safari browser.
It hasn't given me trouble since.

I don't know why things started getting messed up and was glad to have this fix.

I haven't had any problems commenting, but haven't received many comments lately on my blog. Wonder if this is why. Or if it's just me...
