Internet forms issue
I have a website that I have to use for work that I have to use constantly throughout the say. I've been using the .hdml version on my crappy work Nextel but service is so spotty with that it's too much hassle. I've tried using the html page on my BB and it seems to do pretty well, except for the fact that there are quite a few drop-down menus on the html page. The Pearl just lumps them all into one line so it drops down, but with only one selection. For the most part this is OK for my uses, but I do occasionally have to use the menus to select something other than the first option, but I can't! Anyone know of a fix for this? BTW, I have OS (can't get the new OS setup file to launch). I've also tried using it on Opera and it works right, but it runs dog slow on that. Thanks!

You might should try using Opera Mini to view that site. Sometime, OM will render a page much more as intended.

I tried it with Opera, but it took it 5 minutes to go from one page to the next. It's all text based junk, too, no more than 3 or 4 kb max on each page. Runs fine on BB Browser except for menu issue. Maybe re-install Opera?

I would. OM is not known to be slow. Its commands, etc., are sorta clunky.

I un/re OM and it seems to be working faster now. Still kinda slow, but I think that's just my signal strength in my 60 year old hurricane shelter of a house. Hopefully once I get out into civilization again it'll speed up!
