I noticed this yesterday when trying to post an item for sale. The toolbar at the beginning of a new post comes on and stays on for less than one second, then it goes away. What do I do to keep the toolbar in place, especially so I can post an image within a BST post?
Best Regards,

brothers, which device and which browser were you using, if I may ask? I tried to replicate the issue on Win10/Chrome, but didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary.

It's a Dell PC - Vista - I tried Firefox, Explorer, and Google Chrome. I also disabled popup blocking.

vista is old..not sure if something we use code wise is causing problems.

are you able to take a screenshot of the toolbar you speak of?

which toolbar are you speaking of? everything looks correct to me in your screenshot.

It's the toolbar that lists such options as bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, etc. As I said, it appears just as is shown above for no longer than one second before it disappears. I was able to take the screen shot shown above with my snipping tool. I had to practice a few times before I opened a new empty posting box and successfully clicked the snipping tool within that one-second window before the toolbar disappeared. You are right, everything looks right in the snapshot shown above because the toolbar was only half a second away from disappearing.

Gary, I’ve never seen that issue myself, and frankly don’t have a clue as to what could be causing it. Sorry you are experiencing this — especially even after trying different browsers.

can you tell me which version of the browsers you're using?

example: firefox 52, chrome 53, internet explorer 10, etc.
