browser vor forum issue?
Published on May 8, 2012 By Uvah In Forum Issues

This only happens here. I tried rolling back to a previous version of FF and I tried clearing the cache and cookies. Nothing has changed. What happened?

You cleared the cache and cookies, you probably did close and reopen the brower, right?

I had to swap to Chrome for the forums--every since the last forum maintenance, FF was bjorked with them.

I couldn't give karma or edit my posts or use any of the board buttons.

Working fine here in the latest FF. Using any addons?

I tried disabling add ons, completely purging, uninstalling and removing all traces of FF and re-installing it again.  Running in safe mode-with no plugins--didn't help.

I was also having to manually refresh pages--when I hit links I'd have to page back and then page forward again to get the page displayed.

Odd, I am running FF just fine.

Me too... and I'd never have that Chrome POS on my rig.

Uvah: Uninstall it. Download the latest, and stop mucking about! You're just looking for trouble.... Successfully, I might add.

I have the latest FF, that's when it started. I rolled back to version 11 then opened FF and it went right back to version 12, updated itself. Funny thing is it doesn't happen right away. See reply #4....same thing happens to me regardless of what version of FF I use. Always did that but only on WC. Doesn't happen on any other site.

Looking the screenshot, I think the main issue is caused by that Yahoo! tab that are open

 

Kidding... ok, have you tried to load a different WB skin? Maybe it's FF fighting a visual style

metric setting or something, would need to close FF, load a different skin and reopen FF to test.

Switched over to Chrome in the meantime. Will check it out and let you know.

no problems here.

Uvah, I figured out what happened... cos it happened to me

You were cross-eyed

Anyhow, to fix it, tap yourself on the back of the head [to realign the eyes] and all should be fine.

One more thing to try: a new profile.  Your profile is what stays constant across reinstalls, and it's what is different in your install from others.

Start firefox with -profilemanager to creat a new one.

This will have you running without anything that may have been corrupted in your profile or that you may have changed without noticing. It also starts without addons.

Oh, and if that also doesn't help, you may want to try a beta/aurora/nightly build to see if a future version will get better. Even the nightlies are usually stable and usable.

I am unable to recreate your issue. Seeing as you've already cleaned and re-installed Firefox, the only other possible cause of the problem is something else on your computer. Some software may be installed that could be interfering. Do you have anti-virus installed? Try disabling it. Don't have it installed? Try installing one and doing a system scan. Your firewall could also be preventing some traffic (such as images) from coming through. I couldn't tell you why it is only affecting our forums, but sometimes weird stuff can happen.
