Hey folks, doing an upgrade on a test installation of my blog (

* Downloaded the 1.6 files on top of my installation
* Permissions change to App_Data and Web.Config
* Deleted the ExtensionsManager Folder
* Copied appropriate .xml files to new site to preserve data and settings
* Merged new entries from settings.xml (1.6) into my old (1.5.07) file, and copied into 1.6 directory
* Recycled the site
* Logged in

I turned on and enabled both comment spam blockers, using my Akismet account.

IE 8 is the only browser that will post a comment.  Chrome, Safari, and Firefox all just sit there.  No postback, no AJAX, no response.

The AJAX "Preview" works just fine in all browsers, if that makes a difference... 

Any ideas?  Thanks!

There might be a JavaScript error occurring in the other browsers.  In Firefox, I would check the Error Console (Tools -> Error Console).  Look for any errors when you try to submit a comment.

Argh.  So, strangely enough...I woke up this morning and all browsers are working.

I did not reboot anything, recycle anything, or do anything...other than sleep last night.  <laughs>  Not even my home PC.

Odd.  <shakes head in confusion>

Thanks for the idea, Ben!
