Yes, I have had problems as well. So far I have only tried Firefox on Windows. I get a 'Loading' message and that's it. If I close that loading message and click the + on the Quick Reply at the bottom (as I am doing here), the quote does appear in the box. If you want to use the full function editor after, just click on Preview. I wasn't going to report until I tried other browsers, etc. but since you started one I though I would add this detail.

I know, some people have been having problems with it.  I'll try what I can (not much) and then I'll search the support forum.

 I'm using Safari. Anyone have a browser that works with Mac?

Does it work any better now?

Afraid not. Not a big deal, I can live with copy and paste.

Any change now?

I eliminated nested quotes.

I've tried both Safari and Chrome on Mac and it doesn't work. It doesn't work on PC for me either, so I thought it might have something to do with my ad blocker. Unfortunately, disabling the ad blocker didn't help either, so I have no idea why it doesn't work.

What I've been doing is hitting the reply button, then scrolling to the bottom of the screen where it says "Topic Summary." You can add your quotes from there.

For the first time, the quote function worked just by clicking the 'quote' button.   I'm using Chrome.   Previously, I could hit 'quote', then open 'quick reply' and the quote would be there.   But this time it took me to the full editor. 

I can do all kinds of weird and wonderful things from here.

I guess that support forum isn't just for looks.

It's working for me now too, on Firefox (windows).

I`m working on a different Windows/Firefox desktop today and it appears to be find here. I will check back with the other environments where I had problems next week and post if they are fixed there or not.

Whatever you did, it works on Safari for me now. Thanks.

Apparently the quick reply causes a problem for some people.  Disabling it was apparently the solution.

I don't think so.  I just hit REPLY and copy the / quote tag all through it.

Sure is - just scroll down when making a reply and hit insert quote.

When you do, the above happens.
