Selecting text on this site

I cannot seem to select any text on this site. I have tried in IE11 and Chrome. Hovering over text changes my mouse cursor to the big I indicating that I can select, but when I hold down the left mouse button to actually select text, nothing gets highlighted. This is super annoying when people paste sample data that I want to copy and paste into a CSV file or when I am trying to quote a post. I don't have this issue on any other website that I frequent so wondering what gives?

 

Note, if I am editing a post, I can select the text, like in this post I can select the text but once it is posted, nada, unless I go in to edit the post, which of course I can't do to someone else's post.

It would appear that the site is now working. I can also confirm, that when the gentlemen brought this up, it was indeed broken...

Re: Selecting text on this site

Hi again @Greg_Deckler and @andre 

We can't seem to replicate the issue on our side. Can you check again and if possible send us screenshots / repro instructions?

It doesn't seem to be a permission or browser issue.

 

Thanks again!
