    This is my fifth attempt to post on the forum.I had to get up at 2:30 a.m. in order to get a jumpstart. Internet Explorer 8 knows that I hate it because it does not work right. Mozilla Firefox is another but different kind of headache. Somehow I feel alone- that nobody else is having an experience similar to mine. For safety and to save me from having to type – no hunt and peck- this post again, I have saved it in Word. My question is that the hubs are saved as drafts; and if they go missing [some] can be recovered. This request may seem absurd  especially if not many hubbers are experiencing it. But, could posts be saved so that if IE8 does not want to work when I click the Post Topic, I will be able to recover the post after IE has taken a break? Or, do I have to type the post first then copy and paste until IE8 feels like working again?
    I like the new features for commenting/remarks by clicking a button [or two] of choice.

    First of all, I urge you to switch to Firefox even if it takes a bit of getting used to.   HubPages is designed to work best with Firefox and it will save you some grief.

    Most forum posts are short so it would barely be worth a draft function.  If you find your posts often go missing when you hit "submit", what you can do is highlight the post, and hit "copy" before you post it.  Then if it disappears, all you have to do is paste it back in the box.

    I actually have less problems with HubPages on IE than on Firefox.

    With FireFox, I can't add contextual links. On IE I can. That's my main bother. It may be silly, but it's a pain sometimes when I just want to copy an entire text capsule of links and just alter one or two; instead I have to create a whole new link capsule every time I add to a series.

    I also experience more rearranging on FireFox than on IE. Links within the link capsules rearrange themselves, and capsules in general will rearrange.

    Sorry you're having so many issues with IE, have you rebooted your computer lately. I've found sometimes if you don't reboot the computer, it starts to act up. I realize the internet is a whole different animal, but I've had internet problems where sites would act funny, reboot the computer, and everything worked fine again.
