I just tried to put up a bounty on the following question:

Desktop Facebook application for Ubuntu

The Dialog for selecting how hight the bounty shall be comes up but the Next Button doesnt seem to have a link target and it happens nothing.

I tried:

  • hard reloading the page (ctrl+f5) as well as normal reloading the page (f5), nothing changes.
  • logging out of the whole network closing down all pages, cleaning the cache, disabling all add-ons to no avail either.
  • was able to put a bounty on the question via mobile firefox.
  • tried another question then afterwards in browser on PC, again nothing.

As there was a question about what is in the console, here it is:

Is there currently a bug? Using firefox 50.1.0 - canonical 1.0.

  • I just tried it, and it works.

  • Not that I can tell. Try logging-out, and log back in, and try it. Let me know what happens.

  • Well since it seems that I cant get it to work in browser on PC, I just did it on mobile browser. Still no chance, I even tried another question too.

  • Just tested it here, from multiple browsers (including IE11 from a Windows VM) without issue, not sure what's up but it seems to be working for everyone else everywhere.

  • You never answered if there was anything in the console. Probably is.

O.k. I found out what has caused this mess:

A script to add <kbd> shortcut functionality to the site

A greasemonkey script which is terrible outdated it seems but still is to be found on https://stackapps.com/questions/3341/kbd-markup-shortcuts

  • Sorry about that (and the delay). Revamped the script for the site changes and added some extra tag support. Commented Feb 12, 2017 at 22:22

A picture is worth a thousand words... It works for me:


  • The name is "Videonauth" and not "VideoAuth"... :P

  • My apologies... I see a handle and based on recent conversations my brain converts it English: "Video Authority" was in my head :) Commented Dec 26, 2016 at 21:09
