RTF Editor not compatible with FF7?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This message appears whenever I create a new post in a thread.

I would accept it, except that the RTF editor works just fine when I click to edit an existing post.

Oh, and my FF7 crashed while I was creating the last post in BBCode mode: a private message came in and the whole thing went "poof".

Well FF7 is still a beta correct? More than likely its something on the browser end then the Huddler platform.

I downgraded to Firefox 6 and that solved the RTF problem ( + others )

The rich text editor is not compatible with your browser. You may see some HTML source displayed. Any BBCode you enter will be converted to HTML when you save.

Obviously the new Firefox 7.0 upgrade is not compatible. I am seeing BBcode.

I'll check what the Huddler folks are up to on this, and report back. Meanwhile, on Firefox, check your Tool/ Options/Advanced/Updates/ and de-select automatic updates and select "Ask me what I want to do". Firefox has been adding updates at a record pace, and IMO they are not very often ready for prime-time. If Firefox needs 3-updates every month to fix "vulnerabilities" or security issues, it might be time for me to use a different browser.

Huddler is now aware of the bug and they are working on a fix. As I mentioned, the frequency of Firefox updates lately has made it almost impossible to keep up with compatibility issues before major update roll-outs. I'll post back when I hear this has been fixed. Meanwhile, I'm rolling back as well.

The downgrade works like a charm, with the added bonus that I'm able to select source when     ( attempting ) to update Norwegian resorts, see what's in the wiki etc.

 

It's ironic, I changed to Firefox because it was then regarded as the "safest" browser, what to try next? Opera maybe? Hmmm ( deep, thoughtful look ). What's Huddlers recommandation re browser?

Chrome seems to work well for loading Epic fast and it has several features I like. Opera has a similar feel, but it just lacks a few minor things that give Chrome the advantage imo.

I had tied Chrome several months ago and wasn't terribly thrilled but with this monthly release foolishness from Firefox, I tried it again and am really starting to like it.  I'm now using an FF3.6.23 at work and Chrome on my laptop.  I suspect I will be changing my work computer over to Chrome pretty shortly.  I tried Opera and it felt like being logged into Facebook all the time.

Seriously, what's up with all of the FireFox updates? We've gone from v4 to v7 in less than 6 months - it's getting ridiculous (and annoying).

Chrome does the same 6 week update schedule, its just silent and Google is less public about pushing the features so they actually make sure things work before releasing them.

I have both Thunderbird and FF.  My Thunderbird NEVER updates successfully without me going to the site, pulling down the update and installing it that way.  So, the Mozilla updates have been driving me especially nuts.

I am giving Chrome a try for a while.  Looks pretty good so far.

Have downgraded to FF 5.0.  Couldn't find a link for 6.x and 5.0 was the last one sitting on my PC.

 

Let me know when 7.x works.

Will do. FF7 still does not work. FF6 was a memory hog. I think you did fine downgrading to version 5, but to be honest, this is the only site I have a problem with FF 7.0.
post #16 of 18

Yes, I was having LONG LONG LONG delays on the initial click to a site, having to reload repeatedly.  5 is so much better!!!  Hopefully whatever "security issues" they had with it are being handled by Norton or Iobit or my router.

The comment box is fine now for FF 7 on a Mac.  So whatever changed worked.

 

EDIT: I just checked and it appears I have FF 7.0.1 now, so maybe that was it?

post #18 of 18

I had 7.0.1 yesterday before I downgraded and it wasn't working.  Sounds like a Huddler fix?  I'm not in a rush to go back up until I hear FF's speed is back up.  6 and 7 sucked.
