Firefox about:config and BBcode

Post by BobH »

Does anyone know if there is a configuration option in Firefox that would cause bbcode on a vBulletin forum to stop working?

Without editing my user controls on another forum that I frequent, bbcode mark-up that I used to control my signature appearance stopped working. Instead, the mark-up itself that brackets the signature content is displayed without any effect along with the signature content.

I have had some Win 10 updates applied and a new version of Firefox installed. I cannot think of anything else that has changed.

I don't think that would be a Firefox setting. Here in Eileen's Lounge (which runs on phpBB3), there is a setting in the user control panel to enable/disable BBCode by default:

and I can change this for individual posts:

Thanks, Hans!!

I'll look for such an option on the other forum.
