You're right Bernd, anyone using those two Microsoft products will have similar issues because they read html and CSS code differently than other browsers. That's the simplest was I can explain it. 

Freerails is an older site with a patchwork of old code, redundancies, and upgrades.  Somewhere in that mess of 1's and 0's there's a patch that's not working on Edge or Internet Explorer which is the cause of your problems.

The only thing I can recommend is that you download Firefox or Chrome and see if your posts work on that.  You can easily uninstall both browsers if they don't work for you. 
On the other hand, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer should not be uninstalled because Microsoft (in their infinite marketing wisdom) meshed those products in with the operating system.  If you delete either program your computer won't work right.  It's a great browser to use as a backup though, so it's not a terribly big deal.

I hope that this was of some use to you, computers are frustrating.
