    or Firefox?
    Ever since I switched to Linux and use Firefox I can recommend the same comment over and over.
    Does that happen to any of you?
    It seems I could use that ability to my advantage.

      •  I just noticed it today. (1+ / 0-)

        Sometimes my computer jumps around and I lose my place.
        I noticed that before when I recommend a comment the button changes color, almost like a bookmark that lets you know where you are.
           With Linux it doesn't do that.
           What is the IT Team?

    •  Do you see the tip count increment (4+ / 0-)

      multiple times? I doubt the Daily Kos backend is going to allow your browser to achieve what is not allowable otherwise.

      So while you might see something goofy happening in the browser itself, it isn't being reflected in DK's database. I least I sure hope it isn't. :)

        I recked your comment several times but so far it only registered once.
        Before it wasn't doing that. Before the count would go up as
        well.

        •  Likely an error on the client-side (3+ / 0-)

          (your browser) handling of the the code that does the incrementing. This site is complex, and browsers process it with varying degrees of success.

          I have weird problems sometimes too, depending on my choice of browsers at any given time.

      a second time, it takes the rec back.
