iBook Clamshell with Panther 10.3.9
I can't post on Craigslist at all. I can type my ad but when I hit "continue" nothing happens...it will sit there all day until the connection times out.

I've tried iCab, Firefox, Camino, Safari, and Opera and they all do exactly the same thing. What gives?

I'd appreciate any suggestions at all.

Thanks.

Re: iBook Can't Post On Craigslist

Have heard this complaint before, and it's supposedly a java issue.

You might be able to cheat a later version of java into Panther a la this link:

Thanks, I'm downloading the file now and I'm going to give it a try.

Re: iBook Can't Post On Craigslist

Well, even though it seems to have installed with no problems or complaints, I still can't post. Is there any way to find out what version of Java I've got running?

Re: iBook Can't Post On Craigslist

Despite an upgrade to Tiger and Java version 1.5.0_19 the problem persists. Any more ideas?
