When I try to ask new questions, the "autocomplete features" don't work (in Firefox ESR 31.3.0):
- When I start typing a title, I don't get a list of existing titles.
- I don't see a preview of my question below the text input field.
- I don't get any tag suggestions when I start writing in the tag field.
These features do work when I edit an existing question or give an answer. Asking questions works normally if I use IE instead of Firefox (as I'm doing now) and it used to work with Firefox, too.
I don't quite understand how this behavior is possible. How are the features I mentioned above implemented and what is the difference between the implementations for asking and answering/editing? What causes the problem with asking with Firefox and what can I do about it?
I suppose I could first ask the question in some form and then edit it to gain access to the features I want, but this would produce empty or half-complete questions with misspelled tags while I'm in the process of polishing my post. And this is clearly not the way questions are supposed to be asked.
