    It didnt work, clicked on the gear all that came up was edit profile, mark all viewed, mark all category, and sign out. The gear on the post will only let me edit not delete

    Wrong gear thingy...on your post there is a gear and square...depending on the orientation of your screen it's either to the left of your avatar orto the far right of it..

    Can't delete either.  The gear doesn't offer me that option... there is no square for me.

    Nope, deleting is not an option.

    I noticed that earlier.  So, I just “select all” then backspace. All text goes away. Then just enter a period to fool the software. It takes up space, and I don’t care. 
    See bleow.

    For a while now, when I try to edit a post I cannot.
    I click on the gear at the left of the post, then click on this window that opens.

    the edit window opens and sets up for editing.

    When I move the mouse in the edit box, the post goes back the condition of the
    post before I tried to edit it.


    Any retries work out the same; therefore cannot edit; Jayhawker even commented on a post
    I could not edit.
