BBC clips which could be embedded here no longer work

El Loro Testing only [ more ]
El Loro Whether the BBC will reply to me is a different matter as it reflects poorly on them. It may be down to the government restricting the BBC's income by freezing the licence fee which people have to pay so there is a political aspect to this. In the UK people have to pay a licence fee to watch television and that fee goes to the BBC as its main source of income. Although the BBC isn't directly controlled by the government, the government does control it to some extent by "negotiating" a... [ more ]

~Sparkling Summer~ Hi Lori, I'm using the regular size iPhone 6, which is the smaller one [ more ]
Lori I'm sorry I've not responded sooner, but we were on break for the holiday, and I didn't want to bug anyone about this until we all came back, I wanted to confirm my suspicion about this issue: you won't see the editing toolbar on your phone - it doesn't fit very well, without wrapping. Sweet, do you have a 6+ (the larger size) phone? That's the only explanation I can think of for you being able to get the toolbar when you turn it to landscape. [ more ]

Lori Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Do you have any add-ons, erin (that you know of)? Seems like this might be a fairly recent issue, although I'm aware that you've just come back to us after being gone for awhile. Have you done anything with your browser to add any capabilities to it? [ more ]

El Loro Sounds like there is a faulty driver or device which is malfunctioning. System restore may sort the problem out if it's caused by a faulty driver but not if it's a device. Almost certainly something which needs the laptop being checked by a computer technician. The standard method of working out what the problem is to run the laptop in safe mode to see if it works OK. Then each device is disabled in turn to check if it's that which is causing the problem. I found this on a microsoft page... [ more ]
