View Full Version : Cgtalk does not work with Mozilla Firefox 1.0?

10 October 2004, 08:53 PM
I upgraded to Firefox 1.0 and the wysiwyg editor for posting responses and replies does not work, nor do any of the quick link buttons. This is the only forum where I have this problem. Anybody else having problems with Cgtalk and Firefox 1.0?

Yeah, Iv'e had the same problem before. But it seemed to fix its self once i cleared out the cookies and cache. But I suspect it only has something to do with cookies.

It's definitely not something as simple as clearing cache and cookies, I've done that several times and Cgtalk never works with Firefox 1.0

Hi Shade and Pencil Head,

I'm using Mozilla 1.0 and haven't had any issues at all, on this site or any other. Maybe there is something in the tool options that will help it? Really not sure how much I can help tho', as I never had to overcome any problems myself.

There was a Firefox update just released which causes the same issue that we had with the original 1.0PR.

Basically, it reports itself as "0.10" (or in the case of the update, "0.10.1"), which is detected as "less" than the version CGTalk requires for the WYSIWYG editor ("0.6.1").

0.10 and now 0.10.1 are special-cased as OK, so it should work fine now :)

Also, with Firefox, some inline images don't show up.

Their are at least two embedded images in this thread that do not show up.

hmm, I'm using firefox and everything is ok...

Odd. I'm posting from mozilla 1.0 now from an IRIX machine and see no problems.

No problems here either. Ive been using Firefox since the early betas.

"Also, with Firefox, some inline images don't show up."

I couldn't see images either, especially linked images.

Here's how I (just) fixed mine:

At the same time I got Firefox I got Yahoo DSL. With my subscription to Yahoo I got a free firewall program from Zone Labs. My firewall was blocking ads and cookies. I disabled those options and the problem went away (took a lot of troubleshooting before I stumbled on that idea). It wasn't Firefox. It was my Zone Labs firewall preferences.
