Emoticons Cause Tears

I have a problem inserting emoticons in my answers;

  1. I click the icon at top right and a window of little faces appears.
  2. I click a face and the character equivalent appears. (At the foot of my text, not where I left the cursor).
  3. I hit any key and everything I have typed disappears. Undo doesn't work - it cannot be retrieved.

Has anyone else experienced this?

OK, I downloaded and installed FireFox - took all of 3 minutes - and guess what? Smileys work fine! smile

That does suggest it is IE8 and maybe one of its compatibility modes would sort the problem out. Anyway, I'll stick with Mozilla por un rato. rolleyes

It does the same thing with me. You can either copy and paste the key combination that makes the smiley face cool smile in the place you want, or type the combination yourself.

I wonder what browser you are using.

IE8 on 64-bit Vista - could well be the culprit! I'll try FireFox tomorrow. - Jespa, OCT 29, 2009

No.........I'm no techie expert but could this have anything to do with your keyboard or the computer that you're using? You could create the emoticon faces manually I suppose, that could possibly work. I haven't tried myself though........

Anyway, good luck with sorting it out!

Yes, I just type the characters in (if I know them) - that works. I expect it is Internet Explorer; I'll try making this a trusted site, I just wondered if anyone else had experienced it. - Jespa, OCT 29, 2009
