[bksvol-discuss] Re: Checking in a book

Hi, I don't think I experience this sort of problem because I tend to
leave a comment about the book first, especially if I wish to brag about
the submitter's work, or to talk about the book's features (spelling of
the words in the text, punctuation, what I've noticed about the author's
way of making up compound words, typographical errors, and hopes of
approval and why it should be approved). Then going up to that browser
feature will usually result in my book being checked in. Regards, Kim
Friedman.

Hi Ann,
   I don't know if this will help at all, but when I am checking in a
book, 
the browse button will not pop up for me in my IE8 until I arrow down to
the 
edit line of the comments section, then arrow back.  Only then does the 
browse button appear.  Weird, huh?  Hope this helps!
Marty

that's what i used to try and check the books in and i had that same
problem. I tried using internet explorer but for some reason i can't
find the browse button it doesn't pop up. I think your right i think it
s firefox because like i said, i have the same problem when i use it.
