Rewind button not working again

I don't know if this is happening with all scores but it is happening with my Pathetique Sonata for Orchestra score. The rewind button is not working. I tried rebooting my computer just to see if that was the issue and it wasn't. It still isn't working after the reboot.

Here is my computer and browser that I'm using:

Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 15 

Mozilla Firefox

Any idea what is causing this issue or when it will be fixed?

First Orchestration, In Progress but would like some feedback

You could say that I am conquering my Pathetique Project. That's right, I am writing the Pathetique Sonata for a symphony orchestra. My score has this instrumentation:

Piccolo
Flute
Oboe
Bb Clarinet
Bass Clarinet
Bassoon
Contrabassoon
Horn in F
C Trumpet
Alto Trombone
Tenor Trombone(which just shows up in the score as Trombone)
Bass Trombone
Tuba
Tympani
1st violins
2nd violins
Violas
Cellos
Double Basses

Here is the link to it. I will also add it to the group's Sheet Music in case you want easier access to it.

I have already gotten a lot of feedback on the Grave and so I'm mainly wanting feedback on the first theme at this point.

Bug report for Musescore 2.3.0

Hi, 
It seems with this version is impossible to add a score to my SongBook. I tried the two methods that worked in previous versions:
1. Open in Musescore (from Gdrive or any other cloud app).
2. Drag and drop via Airdrop from my Mac to my iPad.
In both cases, nothing happens (well, with Airdrop there is a small flash saying "copying", but nothing is copied). 
I reinstalled the app from the Appstore, only to see my previous scores in my SongBook are gone...
Thanks a lot for your work!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" and Admin/Judge

The wait is over! The first competition is here!

That didn't take long! Thank you to everyone who has joined the group in the last 24 hours or so. :D

So, I have a couple of things to talk about, the first is announcing the competition, the second is regarding Admins and Judges etc, so I want to quickly apologise for the lengthy post.

But let's start with the fun bit!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" by Caspar David Friedrich.

"The Watzmann" is a painting by artist Caspar David Friedrich, made in the mid 1820s. It is a fantastic landscape painting, and although I know nothing about art, I absolutely love this painting.

This challenge was inspired by a composition task I was given at school, where we had to write a piece of music inspired by a painting. I chose a different painting by Caspar David Friedrich, which inspired me to look up some more of his art to use for this competition.

So, the challenge is fairly simple: Write a piece of music inspired by this painting, "The Watzmann". I look forward to seeing what you can come up with.

A few quick rules/details:
1) You may use any ensemble of instruments.
2) The piece must be between 1.30 and 5 minutes long.
3)  The piece must be original, not an arrangement.

You will be given a mark out of 10 for your piece, along with some feedback. You have until Sunday 19th May which gives you one month to complete the piece. I will announce the winners as soon as possible after that.



Admin / Judge

So, basically, if anyone would like to be an admin and judge in the competition, please message me. Your job will be to help me mark the scores, and make sure the group runs smoothly. Obviously, you won't be able to participate in any competitions which you help judge, so sorry about that. If no-one wants to, I can do it myself, but it would make things a lot easier for me, so message if you're willing to help. Thanks!

Conclusion

There. I apologise again for the long post. I'd never get away with this on RSA. :/
Thanks again to everyone who helped boost this group to 30 members yesterday. :D
I look forward to seeing all of your entries to the competition. Obviously you don't have to, but if you are entering, it would be helpful if you could just let me know in the comments. Have fun!

CCC#1 - First Competition!

I will announce the details of the first competition when we reach 30 members.

Please invite your friends, and suggest people for me to send direct invites to, so that we can reach that goal as quickly as possible!

Edit: 
Coundown to 30: 34/30
Update at about 1am BST: It is quite late where I live, so I'll be posting the competition in the morning.
Edit 19 Apr: I'm not updating this counter anymore. Competition coming soon. :D

Invite suggestions + Advertising

Suggest people to send a direct invite to! Advertising the group is great and everything, but we need to send invites to specific people if we want lots of people. Suggest them here, and I'll invite them if I haven't already, or if they're not already in the group.

Edit: If anyone would like to advertise the group for me, that would be appreciated. Also, suggestions of what groups are good to advertise in would be nice.

Orchestrating Pathetique, would like some feedback

I have been orchestrating the Pathetique Sonata for the past week or so. It took about 3 days for the Grave and 4 days for the first theme of the Allegro(partly because my computer started glitching out of nowhere. Thankfully rebooting it stops the glitching for 24 hours or more.)

Here is the link to my orchestration:

I have already gotten feedback on my Grave and made a couple of changes because of that. So I am mostly wanting feedback on my Allegro but more feedback on my Grave I wouldn't mind.

ZachTMusic

Hi,
The second most commented user is goes by the name 'ZachTMusic'
I think he used to be 'thebasscleffguy' but I'm not sure.
Anyway, I've been trying to find his comments because I've been trying to pass him for over 6 months and know he has been inactive, but I can't find a single comment of his in the groups he is a part of. Could someone direct me to a discussion he is in? or could you help me figure out why I can't see any comments he has posted? For all of the other top users even below him they've had enough comments for me to easily see it. When I search up the name ZachTMusic I only see the discussion asking who he is. could you all help me out?
