    Firefox

    Steph:

    Firefox is a nice browser, but unfortunately, it is not yet fully compatible with all websites. Since Internet Explorer has dominated the market for so long, you'll find that most websites were designed specifically for IE. Firefox has made a good attempt of replicating most parts of IE on the surface, but it is still lacking some key compatibility issues which are much less apparent to the end user. The inability to use our PM system via Firefox is an example, but I'm sure there are others you just haven't noticed yet on our site and others.

    Maybe our upgrade will have taken this into consideration (not sure?), but this current version of our forum was designed when FireFox was just a pup . I'm sure the compatability issues will disappear as/if Firefox gains popularity. Until then, you may need to stick with IE for some features.

    Hope this helps.

    Ditto, my mailbox works just fine. Maybe it is a system specific misconfiguration/conflict? A bad extension causing interference?

    FireFox

    That's strange....now it works on my Firefox when it didn't earlier . I guess Firefox must have updated something...although I have the same version as before?? I still notice minor differences in very discrete formatting (some alignments, fonts, etc.), but nothing major. Oh well, at any rate, it seems to be working now

    [Doc thinks to self: hmmm, maybe I should take the credit for that ]

    Firefox

    I am also using Firefox 0.9.3... When there is no mail, "No new PM" shows up just fine, however when there is a PM, the icon disapears and the menu bar gets all screwed up. Happened with Netscape 7.1 as well... (I try and avoid IE as much as possible...)

    This is what happens on my system, it has to do with Firefox not supporting the /Blink function that the PM text uses when you have a new PM. Although the text disappears and it shifts the "Register" & "Log Out" buttons to the next line, the PM Icon is still present, just alot harder to see.

    If you look to the right of the "Usergroups" you will see the little white "PM" icon without any text. If you click on this Icon, it will open up your PM Box, and everything will go back to normal.

    Hope this helps!
