I was having similar trouble with a non-appearing text box yesterday. It
was solved the same way as Tom advised.

Your browser is kindof old and I think would be missing some security
fixes, so you should update at least to (or whatever); you
should be able to do that from the menus: Help > Get Updates or
something similar.

Alternatively you could go to www.getfirefox.com and get version 3, with
whatever new features in has. I haven't used it but as far as I know
there isn't any problems with it generally (notwithstanding what Tom
says below re: Drupal).

It's worth noting that IMC UK is having trouble at the moment as well:
only some of the servers are available (i.e. you have to go to
https://www2.indymedia.org.uk/ instead of just
https://www.indymedia.org.uk/) and the news is 6 weeks old.

Nasty stuff.....
