    I have been having an issue for some time where I could not upload pictures. I click on the picture button an the screen pops up but where the "upload files" button should be, I only get the word loading with a rotating icon beside it. Yesterday while I was trying to fill out the "interview" thing I was sent I noticed I also could not even post links easily. Every time I tried to used the paste option it would paste it randomly in the text. I had no control where. Also hitting the enter key would add a line space at the top of the text an not where the cursor is.

    I figured out this morning that its the coding this website uses having issues with the plug-in Grammarly that is causing all of these issues. Ironically it is the coding in this website that blocks the use of right clicking which breaks Chrome's built in spell check that forced me to install the grammarly plug-in in the first place..

    Thanks for the details!

    So, once you disable "Grammarly", things work fine? If so, let us know which browser version you're using and we'll make sure to report this for the techs to review.

    Yes, once I disable Grammarly everything works as it should. I am using Google Chrome Version 52.0.2743.116 m in 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. AMD FX-8370 Eight core 4.0 GHz and 16 GB RAM
