Unable to Tick a Thread as Resolved

The only Thread with such a Title has been locked.

The Search box is verging on useless as you cannot filter by date and most of the Threads picked up are over 5 years old.

Also cannot Contact FE.

I have Loaded the latest version of Java 64bit and it is enabled.

When I hit the Contact FE Button I get a Translucent Black Screen with a White Rectangle in it. The White Rectangle appears to contain a "Loading" logo, but it never, well in over 5 minutes waiting, completes loading.

Ad blockers / script blockers will stop the green tick

and you shouldn't add you own problem to someone else's thread as they will be the ones to be notified of answers.

Yes look for an answer in another thread with similar title but start your own thread if you cannot find an answer that works for you.

I do believe that wee eddie has started his own thread.

I have exactly the same problem. I use ad blockers which I want to keep as many have complained about obtrusive ads here. I also use DNT+, which blocks 9 or more tracking sites. If the system,, in consequence, stops my green tick, so be it.

Most sites HATE adblockers and prevent users from using some features it is all to do with MONEY!

Switch off AB+ ( if you have it) while you green tick then re-enable it. Works for me.

That is a useful tip though I must admit I do not search PCA these days.

As for the green tick,with me sometimes I can sometimes I cannot do this. Much the same as the format icons in the reply to this topic box. Sometimes they appear but most times they do not. I suspect that it is because I use this http://www.privacychoice.org/trackerblock/ie9 ( the icon are not there hence the link is not the usual way I would post. But I would rather have the intrusive ads,so loved by PCA, blocked than not.
