Me too. I can only highlight a whole line/paragraph if I double-click it, then have to use shift+arrow keys to highlight what I want.

Yesterdays outage was the result of someone in Milan, Italy attempting to hack vorb by using SQL injection on their page requests. We blocked the IP as soon as we realised what was going on.

Further analysis showed that they had not been able to break in or extract any private data but they were able overload the database which caused the outage. We have added some input variable sanitation to the area of vorb where they were able to cause trouble so we should not have the same problems when they come back.

As for Chrome I am seeing the same problem (unable to highlight text) as soon as I load a vorb page but if I click on a different chrome tab and then return to the vorb tab highlighting works fine. Did this previously work? I'm a Firefox user so never noticed an issue.

I noticed this last week in Chrome, but it was on a completely different website. So I don't think the problem is with vorb. But I'm prepared to be proved wrong.

That said, I think there have been a rather large number of changes done in the Google realms.

Youtube is unable to be watched from my phone. Well, I can watch, but if the video has an advert, then I can only see the ad. IE10 is a little weird with Gmail and Gchat.

So if there're weirdnesses afoot with Chrome, I'd not be too surprised.

O noes, the weirdness wars have begun again!

They did this back around the turn of the century, I'm still not on speaking terms with the friends who abandoned standard HTML to follow the wicked path of Microsoft proprietary antistandard standards.

Try some thing for me people -

I have just updated Chrome, and I have the problem AND I only have it on vorb :(

BUT If I make the chrome window smaller, either Hightwise or Widthwise. my select comes back :) . Does this fix it for anyone else. If it does then thats messed up!

Exactly the same for me; if I minimise the browser page select comes back, but if I'm full page it ain't there! :huh:

Ha!
I just minimised the browser then full screened it. Lo and behold, I can select again!

Making the window smaller using the "restore down" button didn't make any difference.

Bizzare, for I, using "restore botton" then scrolling down using the mouse wheel made it work :crazy:
