I don't know what happened...
I don't know why it happened...
I don't know how it happened...
I'm not even sure exactly when it happened...
but I need H.E.L.P.!!!

You know of some blogs have a pop-up window when you click to comment...
well, starting last night, when I click to comment and that pop-up window comes up, it is about an inch wide. I can see about three words of everyone's comments and my own when I'm trying a comment.

When I move the mouse to the edge of the comment window, the mouse does not turn into a sizing handle, so that won't fix it...
I've tried refreshing (didn't work)...
I've tried rebooting (didn't work)...
When I right click at the top of the comment window, the only option it gives me is to 'minimize'... nope, it's pretty much minimized enough.

This is driving me batty - I seriously cannot deal with only being able to read three words...

I figure SOMEONE out there in the blogosphere has to know what I can do to fix this... please, my fingers are crossed that someone can help me (it's hard to type with my fingers crossed - so please HELP.and.FAST...

Ugh, I've had that happen but no idea how or why but eventually it got back to normal somehow without me doing anything. BTW, here's the link to a place a used to guide me in switching to my own domain, but I did lose all Alexa, PR, and backlinks.


Well, the first thing I would do is go to settings and then comments. Scroll down to "show comments in a new window". Change from yes to no and then save your settings. I would even go back to comments and have a look. This isn't everyone elses blog it's yours somehow. I would then go back and reset it back to the way you had it. Even rebooting in between isn't a bad idea. Then go back to settings, then comments and change the show comments in a new window to yes and again save your settings. Hope this works. :)

Thanks for your help Sandee - I've tried your advice several times (with rebooting) and it didn't fix my problem. I think my computer just hates me this week! LOL

I really do appreciate your taking the time to try to help me though. You're wonderful.

I was going to tell you to do what Sandee told you. I hope you're feeling better buddy!

This happened to me the other day, but in reverse! The comment screen got too filled up the entire screen and I couldn't figure out how to make it normal sized.

Re-booting fixed that problem though.


UGH! I hope you get it figured out.


Ah, one more than me having this problem! But I've had mine for a long time now.

Do you use Firefox as a browser?
Have you tried to comment on those blogs in Internet Explorer instead?

You see, for me this problem is only appearing in Firefox, it works Internet Explorer, so I visit those blogs with IE.

Sorry to say, I haven't found any other solution for it. I searched for an answer in the beginning when it did hit me, but didn't find any answer then, so I gave up.

If you find the answer, I wouldn't mind sharing it :-)


Actually, I have this problem to comment on your blog here...


You're so funny! And sorry I cannot fix this for you...but next Tuesday, remind me to look into the meme, sounds like FUNNNN! xox


Poor you! Love the header.
I can't help you!!


I've been having the pop-up problem for a long time. Now, when I go to comment on someone's blog, I check first to see what the link says. If it says 'pop-up=true' then I right-click and select 'open in a new tab' Then I go to the new tab and read all the comments and put my own in. That's what I'm doing now, here. When I'm finished, I either close the tab or use it to go somewhere else.

I'm sorry to hear that. Sorry I don't have a clue how to solve such a problem. Hope it's a temporary glitch and everything is back to normal.

The only thing I was going to suggest is to clear out your cookies then reboot. Sometimes the coding gets all screwed up then it's stuck there. A good clean up never hurts...
