    I can not get the mentioned "other" box to work: "Enter # for MTBF (base 10)"
    Been trying to enter 1.0M for MTBF.
    No matter how I enter it doesn't calculate and what I entered blanks out.
    Which syntax/style are you using for base 10 in that box?
    Thanks.

    Just a suggestion...
    Might reduce computational load if you weren't doing numbers like 6,889,809,525,022.22 out to 2 decimal places.
    From a practical standpoint 3 or 4 significant digits should be enough for comparisons - if that kind of rounding is supported in your program.

    1 works. 1.0 works. 1.2 works. Are you putting the M in there?

    And the rounding - not an issue in a MTTDL model like this.

    Firefox is blocking the page reload to the new numbers when I click "submit" - but only when I use the "other" box.
    If I 'tell' Firefox to allow the page reload, it will, but it reverts back to the preset value (1.2M) in the process.
    Once the blocking happens it locks-in and stays. I have to close the page and reopen to make it quit.

    None of the other (other than "other" :confused:) boxes exhibit that behavior.
    If I never touch the "other" box in a session everything works fine.

    We do not support folks having issues that are using ad blocking plug-ins. Too often they break things.

    @Patrick your time is more valuable than this.

    First it makes no sense that an ad-blocker would -only- affect it when the 'other' box is used.
    Second - I did a fresh install of Firefox with no ad-blocker. - Same exact behavior.

    Maybe the problem is newer versions of Firefox don't like some of your older HTML.

    Earlier I made some suggestions for the ServeTheHome's RAID MTTDL Calculator.
    Now I'm reporting a bug.
    Are you familiar with the title of this thread?
