      Description

      Sometimes in IE, if you click on the "Expand Editor" button (e.g. when editing the forum introduction field), the popup will show but not load properly. The javascript error is as follows:

      Line: 538
      Char: 5
      Error: 'HTMLArea.l18N.msg' is null or not an object
      Code: 0
      URL: https://courses.mytwu.ca/lib/editor/htmlarea/popups/fullscreen.php?id=4961

      Sometimes you can get it to load properly by refreshing. When doing this, I frequently get a dialog box saying "overLIB 4.10 or later required for the CSS Style Plugin", whether it works after that or not. Other times though, even though it fully loads, once you try to highlight text, this error appears, and the editor freezes:

      Line: 1091
      Char: 13
      Error: 'HTMLArea.l18N.msg' is null or not an object
      Code: 0
      URL: https://courses.mytwu.ca/lib/editor/htmlarea/popups/fullscreen.php?id=4961
