Send button, Spell Check, Text

Three problems:

1.  When clicking different items such as this forum, the "send" button is grayed out and will not work.

     I have to copy the address on a new E-mail and then type message. 

 

2.  Spell Check formerly worked as intended, the spelling error is underlined & hi-lilted & when I click it,

     I am provided several spelling options and can add a new one if desired.

     

    Now, the spell error is not hi-lilted and nothing is offered in way of correct spelling to select.

    I assume I must have changed something, but no idea what. 

 

3. I need to have options stay as Text otherwise when I start to type, nothing shows.  I have to change

    to Text first every time.

Re: Send button, Spell Check, Text

The control key is a substitute for the right button. You may have inadvertently changed your mouse button settings although I thought it previously worked with the normal click.

 

I don't know what to suggest for your other problems because I don't understand where/how/when they are happening. How does it differ from what I'm doing below?

 

The message you want to reply to needs to be selected/highlighted like so:


 

When I choose Reply, I get this:

Re: Send button, Spell Check, Text

Hopefully someone will have ideas on the Send Button and Text.  I should not have to establish a new

message to reply, but as Send key is grayed out, no choice.

 

The Text Issue I can live with.

Holding Control Key worked.  Interesting as prior to problem, I never needed to hold this key.

 

Removing the other items failed to make a difference.

 

Thanks very much for your time and suggestions.  I am deligned the Control Key option worked.

Re: Send button, Spell Check, Text

I'm not sure if you are referring to this forum or Xfinity Connect (web-based email). 

 

For spell-checking in Xfinity Connect, when it gets selected in spell check, click on it with the control key held down. That's a right-click and will show a menu. Here, you get a pop-up panel.

 

#3 works okay for me with Xfinity Connect and Safari. I'm not sure about #1 and what you are trying to do.

 

I suggest clearing the Comcast cookies. Preferences > Privacy > Cookies > Details > search for Comcast > select them > Remove > Done

 

If you installed the Comcast toolbar, remove that entirely. 

 

Anyone else have any ideas?

Re: Send button, Spell Check, Text

Which web browser are you using? Which version of it?
