I've just returned to these august and highly esteemed forums, to ask a question on Catalina, after an absence of a few years and I decided to update my Profile.

However, having so done and after hitting Submit, I get an error message of:

It does not appear that this was submitted from the proper form. Please click [ Back ] to return to the previous page.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can be using the wrong form when I am on the Edit display preferences page and how I can find the right page?

Thanks in advance.

In light of this and your difficulty downloading Catalina, you are well and truly in an electronic Bermuda Triangle. I Am unable to duplicate your profile update problem — that does not mean it isn't real just that I cannot duplicate it. Given this and you Catalina download problem leads me to suspect something at your end. Do you have anti-malware software, are you on a VPN, or are you behind a third party firewall of some sort? Anything that might be effecting the sent or received signal?

By-the-way, welcome back.

Just because I'm not paranoid, it doesn't mean that they aren't out to get me!

Now I can't replicate it either and I have now updated my profile.

Very odd, but thanks very much for your reply. smile

Don’t you hate it when that happens. I am a public beta tester and I have any number of times encountered an error in a beta that after thorough testing and analysis, I report to Apple. Then come in the next morning and cannot replicate the error. To save myself the embarrassment of having to close the problem report I have added one major test to my repertoire before submitting the error report — A cold boot.
