Re: Exterior Lighting only available in IE - not solved but figured out
After a bunch of monkeying around I discovered the Exterior Lighting section appears only if I log in to the forums. My cookie settings in Firefox, Safari and Camino prevent automatic login. With IE cookies are not controllable in any practical way so I get logged in automatically as soon as I navigate to M3F. Hence the observed behaviour.
I still think it is weird that things only started working this way yesterday but the internet is a pretty random thing. At least I figured it out.
As a further curiosity, if I copy the link for Exterior Lighting while viewing it in IE and paste it into Firefox it redirects to the M3F login screen. So for whatever reason the whole section is not only invisible but locked down if I'm not logged in. But the forums were offline with the standard database error for a few hours on Sunday (I assume for back-ups other maintenance) so new weirdness is not surprising.
