I just tried to email another member who asked me a question and I got this  NOTE  ..."Your browser does not support private messages (JavaScript is required)."   IS  this  something that WT  changed or did my computer get  hacked over night?  it was fine yesterday.

Hi Carole,  When my computer does strange stuff, I 

  1. clear all the history and old data links. 
  2. shut the computer all the way down/off to reset the memory. (Not Restart)
  3. start it up again with a clean memory.

That usually takes care of any weirdness.  

i tried all of your suggestions, and then did an "Add-ons"  and downloaded the javascript. again,  the browser showed that it was enabled  but still would not email so I did a system restore.  and it is back. and OK

No, everything is fine my end (I just tried it).  Make sure your browser is as up-to-date as possible.

oh, I know what did it.  I saved an excel folder to PDF and it made me update my firefox.  that's when it started.  And the firefox was updated just last week.  "Clear all history and data links"  gosh.. how about if I reset back to the day before,  after I check the java settings on firefox
