Not a Bug Extra button when replying to thread (XenBase)

    Before submitting a bug report we usually recommend trying to replicate the problem on a default XenForo style(if applicable) to eliminate the possibility of it being a bug related to our styles.

    Website address (optional): (however, I also see the issue on too)
    Bug Report Details:
    When going to reply to a thread, there are three "fields" underneath the reply box. The left button is "Post reply", the right button is "More options…", and the middle space is a gray, un-clickable space. It seems like the placement of a button is shifted and not the whole thing went with it. Screenshots should make more sense of this.

    You can see this actually affects more buttons than I expected, like in this one here.

    Any ideas on this one?

    If you look at your screenshot you can see a warning in your browser just under the bookmarks bar saying Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. That button is the upload a file button which is flash driven. So I can only assume it is client side related. Most likely your other report is as well client side.

    What browser and OS versions are you running?

    Ah, I think that is the case for this… it seems to be correlated. I found an update for Flash that I missed over the weekend and applied that, but still no better for me. I'm not sure if there's a whole lot that can be done on this. I get the same problem in XenForo proper, which I guess I should have tested first before reporting… :p

    I think that one may be separate. The bar appears for me briefly at the top of the page, and then quickly fades out. I also don't receive a notification about Flash crashing on non-thread pages where the sub-nav bar would appear.

    Firefox 50.0.2 with Fedora 25.

    Try this ->
    Open a new Tab in FF and use the adress -> about:config
    Type in the search field -> dom.ipc.plugins.asyncdrawing.enabled
    Have a look to the red field, it should be -> false
    If it is -> true, change it with a double click, this solved my problem with the upload button.
    Reboot your PC.

    Can you test with another OS? I tried your site and it appears fine for me, I meant the other report is client side not related to Flash directly.

    Hmmm, looks like it's already set to false for me. :(

    I don't have another OS I can readily access right now, but I tried in Chromium and had no issues with the button.

    Not technically a bug just the browser blocking flash from loading. Luckily... 1.5.12 comes default with an html5 uploader!

    I saw this in the changelog, I was super excited to finally have this make it to XenForo! (y)
