    In these forums I can hit the Tab Key after I type my message and cycle to the Submit New Thread, or Submit New Post, it doesn't seem to work on other forums. Is there a work around for this or a key command?

    You can use full keyboard access by going into System Preferences->Keyboard and Mouse preference pane.

    Right, what I'm wondering about is why when I use the Tab key in other forums I can't get it to Cycle to the Submit Button as it works here? Do you think I need to do something different. Are you able to follow what I'm saying, LOL?

    If not I can create an illustration.

    This is the typed message, you can see the cursor after Illustration.

    Once I hit Tab, you see how the Submit Reply is surrounded by a series of dots indicating that Submit Reply is active? Then I just hit enter and the post is made.

    It worked!

    I borrowed one of our OS X training DVD's and with the help of the DVD I figured out how to get the cycle to work. Preferences>Keyboard & Mouse>Keyboard Access>All Controls. FTW!
