Weird Computer Error

I’m having a problem with LingQ that seems to be isolated to my computer, and I’m wondering if anyone here might have suggestions as to how I might correct it.

When I am reading something from my workdesk, I can only create one new LingQ each time that the page loads. Here’s what happens:

I open a document and begin reading. I can click the selected words and see all current LingQs with no problem, and I can create one new one. After that, when I try to create a new one, I select the word and click the LingQ box, but the highlight disappears and an error message comes up asking me to select a word or phrase.

I can also reload the page and create one new word each time I do this.

I use Firefox and Windows Vista. I’m learning German. I’ve used LingQ for a while now and I have not had this problem until the last week or so. I’ve cleared my data (cookies, etc.) and had no luck.

I’ve recently used other computers (with Firefox as well as other browsers) and had no problems. What else can I try? This is very frustrating, but I don’t think it’s necessarily a LingQ error.

Thanks - I appreciate any ideas.

That does seem strange. Which version of Firefox are you using?


I have the same firefox version and I am unable to reproduce the problem. Did you have any firefox extension installed? Maybe you could try to disable them and see if it fixes the problem.

As of today, it’s working for me again. As far as I know, this isn’t due to anything that I did - nothing that I tried seemed to any impact. I think it might have something to do with today’s LingQ updates. In any case, I’m happy that it’s working in Firefox again!

There were some Firefox related bug fixes uploaded today with the new version. I’m glad they have fixed your problems!
