Mozilla and TFL...

Is anyone having issues with Mozilla and TFL?

I got hit with a forced "upgrade" the other day and now I can't use the smilies or the formatting buttons at the top of the message pane.

I'm close to going back to IE because every time Mozilla forces an upgrade I have viewing issues with a variety of websites.

No problems on my end, Mike... But, perhaps it's a Linux thing?

Mozilla

I haven't experienced any problems either, and I elected to do the upgrade several days ago.

I recall that same problem reported before. It wasn't a Firefox problem, it was something else like Java or Active-X. I'll see if I can find it.

Can't find it, but I think it was that Javascript wasn't enabled. Be sure you have both Java and Javascript enabled in Tools->Options->Web Features

(You need to exit FF and restart it before the change takes effect. That is, if that's the problem.)

Java and Javascript are both enabled...

This has happened a couple of times after forced upgrades.

Once I got ****** enough that I reverted to a much earlier version.

I'm about to that point again.

No Problems Yet ... I use Google as my Search engine with Firefox
how long did you use the one version before it made you upgrade... I'm not a computer guy, but good to know for my own problem if it happens....


Wild A.. i think it means Internet Explorer

I've been using Firefox for probably the last 6 to 8 months or so.

I've noticed some issues when upgrading, but I've never noticed that it's killed my forum controls. This one is a first.

IE is Internet Explorer

I've been using Apples Safari (for windows). Very fast and so far so good.
It works with all the sites and has a few features IE doesn't.

And now, this evening...

The damned smilies and message pane controls WORK with Firefox...

I had trouble using the bundled Mozilla, but when I went to Firefox and Thunderbird as separate apps, they worked fine.

You will get the warning that you need to upgrade your Java script if you are using a script blocker, as I do. On TFL, I permenently enabled scripts.

The only time I use Internet Exploder is when I'm listening to Yahoo Launchcast Radio or playing certain games on Pogo.

Otherwise I find it to be FAR slower than Firefox.
