Something Strange

Idk where to post this at so forgive me

But....how come now I can't view the buttons in the post box? Like the editors for color and Bold, Italic, underline, etc etc.

I just get the plain text posting box. this happened as of today. Does it have anything to do with Xenforo 1.4.2?

I use Internet Explorer 11(shush lol) as my main browser.

To investigate, I unfortunately downloaded Crap Chrome and I can see the buttons fine but not in IE 11. I want to know can I bring them back?

If this is 1.4.2 related, I may hold off on updating it...or is it just something I can fix in my settings

It's been running here for a few days like that, but if your browser is identifying as IEMobile, the rich text editor has been disabled due to issues relating to cursor management (Windows Phone).

Well as I am a Windows Phone user, I am always glad to see it getting some attention since it is not as popular as Android/IOS.

Thanks for the reply.
I am using a Surface Pro tablet...however I am using desktop IE 11 not the Metro version...I am surprised it registers as mobile :/
But no big deal! Thanks :)

What's the user agent come up as? http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

Also, can you select words and move the cursor around in the rich text editor via touch? (can't test that here obviously)
on that site you linked me? Or should I try it on my own XF forum(Pre 1.4.2).

On that site, I can use touch fine to select text.

on my XF 1.4.0 site, I can use touch just fine as well to select text and what not(though I rarely ever actually use touch to move my cursor around).

The useragent I got now is
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; Touch; rv:11.0) like Gecko
