You know what kinda sucks about Mozilla/Firefox when it comes to browsing sciforums? When you get the tooltips of the thread in the forum listing it only shows a small portion of the post. And, it inserts little black bars into the text as well. I think they represent tabs or quotes or something. Not entirely sure. IE shows a lot more of the post in the tooltip. I wonder if there's a way to change that.

Yeah, make the forum standards compliant.
 
There are actually quite a reasonable amount of Mozilla users. These are the visitors in the last 2 days on my site. 22 mozilla and 62 MSIE (6.0) users.

62 MSIE 6.0
22 Mozilla 5.0
10 MSIE 5.01
2 MSIE 5.5
1 Netscape6 6.2
1 Safari 1.2
1 Opera 7.20
1 Firebird 0.7
 
1 - Firebird is actually an early version of Firefox. Before that it was Pheonix.
2 - People can change the UserAgent string to identify themselves as whatever browser they want, and most choose to identify as IE to view certain sites.
 
Hey Spurious, I don´t think that those stats say much, I have turned the option "identify Opera as MSIE 6.0" turned on. And I suppose some others also have...
 
The stats just show that there are a reasonable amount of mozilla users out there. The fact that you can identify yourself as IE doesn't make a difference. It just helps the final conclusion: Mozilla is not an obscure little browser, but used by many.
 
That tooltip plugin doesn't seem to do anything.

Damn, you're right. I thought it did because it made <a href="showthread.php?goto=newpost&amp;t=37882"><img src="images/buttons/firstnew.gif" alt="Go to first new post" border="0" /></a> Show more text.
 
Seeing as it's not from a trusted source and doesn't seem to do anything, I'd suggest reinstalling Firefox, since it could be doing anything. It could be spyware, or a trojan, or simply be making FF unstable. On the other hand it could simply be designed for an older version or trunk build.

BTW, turns out Mono does more than I thought. It does .NET, ASP.NET, VB, C#, ADO.NET, etc.

That's a little extreme. The .js and XUL look fine.

That's a little extreme. Just check the .js and XUL.
 
I'm bringing this thread from the dead, because I now some experience with Firefox. Not only is it great to use, but I noticed that in conjunction with the add block an interesting phenomenon occurred.

I used to run adaware daily and found about 5-10 ad/spywares every time.

Now I run it once a week, and it finds nothing.

I would say that this is pretty positive.
 
Yeah, now if only more people would join the mozila/firefox bandwagon, maybe we could get more webdesigners sticking to html standards so that they will work properly on firefox. This, of course, is not merely a mozilla problem. Opera is also a standards compliant browser. It's IE that's the problem. Bill Gates' idea that he can create the rules by which everyone plays. Fargin icehole.


Edit: Don't get the wrong idea. There's actually very few pages that don't work properly that I've come across. But, it's always an annoyance to have to fire up the old internet suxplorer. :p

By the way, Monkey, does your site display properly with firefox? That'd be ironic if it didn't, wouldn't it? :D

Seems ok on my computer. I noticed though that for the bunny site explorer shows the H1-4 headline command at different sizes than firefox does.
