Many thanks for the update, Phil.

It is much appreciated :-D

My Friday update (just a little after Friday though).

We still have some work to do over the weekend and a release to do next week, but we will also go through the message threads and make sure we are covering all the issues that have been mentioned.

Today was more spent on the looking for other performance/bugs (the ones that have been around awhile). We are working a few new solutions, and need to do some more testing. More news early next week.

Thanks, IGP

I was assuming it was GR's fault ........... naughty of me, I know :-)

Nothing to do with your browser, this time. There was / is a bug on the page which lists your messages. Having read a message, if you return to your list of messages then you will find that if you click on a new message, after a few times, nothing happens. It isn't your browser freezing it is GR.

If you refresh the page either by clicking on the 'reload current page' icon on your browser, or by pressing F5, you should then be able to select another message. Alternatively re-select your inbox using either the link on the left or drop-down menu at the top of your screen.

Is nowhere safe.......? :-S

I've got problems on FB and can't chat to anyone........seems as though they have a problem with that facility as there are complaints from all around the world :-(

I will have to go and lie down in a darkened room..............


AnninGlos Report 1 Dec 2011 22:06

To be honest I am really not bothered as long as they solve the problems. If Phil wants I'll delete this thread.

Just a question - Sylvia's post was 21:36 when my computer's clock was 21:34 - is the clock slow?


SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2011 21:36

I guessed that was it Ann

.... but I think it would be better to keep all comments and reports in the same place, then they don't get diluted.


SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2011 21:35


you can open pms and respond using IE

I have to use Mozilla Firefox to open pms and respond

:-S :-S :-S

Plus .... I have just discovered that it seems I can open a maximum of 6 old emails to check what is in them, and then even Firefox freezes up and refuses to open any more. :-|



SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2011 21:28

I still have my messages back to 2004 ......... although there do seem to be fewer than I remember

I should get my act together, and save any important ones to my computer ........ somthing I've been "intending" to do for years. And we all know what can happen to "intensions" :-D

Opened, read and replied to messages, using IE7. However 3 messages still visible.


AnninGlos Report 1 Dec 2011 21:26

Thanks Phil and apologies Sylvia, I had seen your thread but was feeling particularly frustrated this afternoon after commenting many times before.

Joy Kentish Maid Report 1 Dec 2011 21:09

Thank you.

And, although I was pleased that the unwanted messages from deleted contacts have been removed, messages from 2004 to November / December 2007 have gone too :-0 :-S


philmoir Advisor Report 1 Dec 2011 20:18

All messages are marked as read from my end. So I need to take a deeper look at this. Will pick this up tomorrow also.


philmoir Advisor Report 1 Dec 2011 20:12

I will get this merged.

Joy Kentish Maid Report 1 Dec 2011 18:28

There are three messages awaiting me - two from Jonesey, one from Sylvia in Canada. I cannot read them because when I click on in messages the
Sorry. An error has occurred etc appears.

If this why you cannot read mine, Phil?

Phil - my replies to your message last week " Message Centre" look as if they have not been opened.


SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2011 18:02


not wishing to upstage you, but I did start a Message Centre thread days ago, and therefore I wonder if merging the threads is not a better idea .... Phil can do that!!


as I already have a long Message Centre going, and on which you have given a much fuller repsonse, would it not be better to merge this thread with the earlier one??



SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2011 17:59

Thank you for that update, Phil

It feels so much better to know that you (and GR) really are working on the problems, and not just ignoring us!

:-D :-D :-D
