Post Puzzles inaccessible through menu
For some reason I cannot use the menu to pick the puzzles to do. I have to enter the addresses manually. This also applies to puzzles of previous days.

I am not sure if this is a problem on my end (internet has been acting up a bit - but other websites work just fine), or if this is a general site problem at the moment. Earlier in the day it worked just fine as far as I recall (though I might also have used the "go to next unsolved puzzle" feature).

Not seeing that here..

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Did you try a "shift + reload" of the page? (Shift + Ctrl + R)

If I reload the page, or open it anew in Vivaldi (my browser of choice) the same thing happens.

However, it does seem to work well on Explorer.

I don't know the "Vivaldi" browser.

And I'd avoid Explorer at all costs (no idea it was still being used (!))
(its nickname among developers is "Internet Exploder" :-) )

The best browsers these days are Firefox and Chrome, in my opinion.
(and edit:, Safari is fine on Mac / iPad / iPhone of course)

I've had no problem. I'm using Safari on my iPad.

I also don't really have the time to test the site on the "Vivaldi" browser.

Stats over the past month show that it's responsible for 0.0001 percent of the site's traffic..

Well, strange then. Looks like I am the only user on the site using the browser, and obviously, I can switch.

I have used this browser for a year before on this site, and never ran into this particular problem.

I can deal with this manually, and I'll see if this odd behaviour persists.

I'd have to check, I think there were maybe one or two more visitors using that browser.

Closed the browser, and opened it anew. Did not help.
Updated the browser, and that did not help.
Restarting the machine did not do the trick either.
Rebooting the machine after a power failure did the trick. Really not sure how that happened, and why such strange behaviour was exhibited by the browser. It is more likely that it was a minor hardware issue on my end.

Sorry to have worried you Patrick, but at least this problem is solved.
