Obviously, you can't reply if this problem is still happening... So I would suggest that you try another browser to narrow down if Firefox (or an add-on) is the problem. If commenting etc works in another browser, then disable the add-ons in Firefox and give it another try. If it works, then one (or more) of the browser add-on's are to blame (troubleshooting from there depends on how many add-on's you have).

If commenting works with another browser, reply with an update so that we can give you further suggestions on how to solve the problem.

Are you using any Javascript blocking plugins? What firefox extensions do you have installed? Have you noticed any other functionality missing? Does it still not work?

Dopey question - have you tried scrolling down slightly after hitting post? The default comment box reappears, empty, as soon as you hit post, and your comment may be further down the page than shows on the screen.
