Color Picker Tool Giving Me A Headache

In Gimp 2.8, the color picker tool won't work when I have the text box open like it did in the last version. It's not allowing me to pick a color from an element to use in the text. Am I doing something wrong?

Forums: 

there is a set of buttons... bold ect..ect... at the far right is the color selector just click it and the color selector dialog opens.

You can either select the color then type OR type your text and with your mouse left click and select text you want to color and then use the color button to change the color of the text selected.

Thanks for your help but that wasn't working for me. Lol. I have to type my text and then select the layer I want to grab color from and then drag my foreground color box to my text color box in order to change it.
