Unable to change reminder time


Since the new format for adding reminders came out, I am unable to change the reminder time on my Todoist in Firefox. I am using Firefox 30.0 (I know there's a new version out, but I can't get to it until my workplace updates it). When I try to add an update or change the time of an update, the drop-down options box appears, and if I select the "Date and Time" option, a default date of "Today at 2pm" appears. I am unable to change the text in this box. If I click to accept that reminder time, a popup box appears that tells me "Date cannot be empty". Is this a known issue for Firefox 30.0?

Hello Julie,

The "today at 2pm" text it not an actual input. That means, it's a "help text" that's shown only if the field is completely empty. This means that you can't just accept this field without entering anything into it as it will not add a reminder to today at 2pm, but consider this an empty field awaiting input.

Now, that's just to clarify, the main issue is that you can't edit the date and time of an existing reminder - that's actually by design. It's not possible to edit and existing reminder, you must delete it using the trash icon on the right-click -> Reminders list and then adding a new one.

Gotcha--I didn't know I couldn't edit the existing reminder. That solved the issue! Thanks!
