Anyone having trouble with Firefox 3.6 and Preview

 

I always click Preview on my posts first before I click Submit. Just in the last day or two, when I click Preview, it just blanks the editor and starts over. Is anyone else seeing this? It only does with when I'm using Firefox. No problem with IE 8.

Nope

But, I use 3.5.8, not 3.6. Are you using NoScript, or ABP?

The only add ons I'm using are Microsoft .Net and Opanda iEXIF. I haven't made any changes with that in a VERY long time, and I've been using Firefox 3.6 for a couple weeks now. This problem with the Preview function on this site just started the other day.

Same Problem

I've used 3.6 for only a few days. I don't have the problem described - but - I've noticed a few other quirky things.

Possible problem fix.

Did not put in spam code last time. Did this time and it worked fine.

Do you have NoScript enabled?

I had the same problem with Firefox v 3.6 but preview worked fine once I set NoScript to allow all on page.

Open the Tools dropdown menu and Select Add-ons to see if you have NoScript installed. If it is installed you should see the NoScript icon in the lower right corner of the browser. If the icon has a diagonal line through it then right click to Select allow all this page or temporary allow all on page.

Ok, I just read your post stating you don't have NoScript. When I check the Page Source under the View dropdown menu and by the info provided by NoScript, it shows that 11 lines of script are present on the page.

Perhaps you should check to see if you have JavaScript enabled. Select the Options menu from the Tools dropdown. Then Select the Content tab. Also, you might want to see if you have the latest version of Java. Open the Control Panel and Open the Java control panel. Then Select the Update tab.

Latest Java

I updated Java just to be sure. Actually, this is affecting the Post function just the same. And it's affecting other web sites, too. I just noticed it here first. And it's random. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This is on a corporate laptop. I wonder if it's caused by some sort of security setting that IT pushed out to us. This and some other occasional quirks may have me give up on Firefox and just IE.
