The pop-up blocker in Safari prevents users from writing new messages in the discussion area. Clicking the Compose button is blocked, but clicking the Reply link works. The solution for the user is to turn off the pop-up blocker. Open the Safari preferences, select the Security tab, and click to turn off the pop-up blocker.
