Firefox issue

4 posts in this topic

Ok here's a strange one.

Using firefox to comment on a website I am part of (won't mention site address) I have encountered a problem. When I press the post button to add a comment on the forum, firefox takes me to a new blank page with:

"BoldItalicLinkBlockquote" written at the top, the words are a hyperlink back to the comment section. With IE there appears to be no issue at all. Should anyone need a really detailled description of this problem it can be found here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/218050.

Has anyone any idea what "BoldItalicLinkBlockquote" is as google seems to have no answers.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Here is an image of the problem

So sites do not like you to use Firefox.

Many banks are like this, but they are turning slowly.

Try to access this site with another computer with Firefox.

Or just contact the people who run the site.

canigetaverdict2.com - is this the site you did not want to mention?

It was in the picture you posted.

Yes that was the site I just didn't want to look like I was advertising.

Funny enough it was the guy who runs the site who brought this to my attention and we are both looking for a solution. We have both tried several different computers.

Any other ideas than don't use firefox?

A javascript error is causing it to bomb out. If you take a look at Firefox's error console you see it points to line 133 of the file: http://www.canigetaverdict2.com/wp-content.../yaapc.js?ver=1

The full error is:

Error: jQuery is not defined
Source File: http://www.canigetaverdict2.com/wp-content/plugins/yaapc/yaapc.js?ver=1
Line: 133

I've personally never refer to a DOM element using jQuery like:

jQuery('#ElementIdHere')

Usually it's:

$('#ElementIdHere')

I know jquery has a safemode to make it play nice with the Prototype framework (which also uses $()), but I don't believe the syntax is used like that.

Keep in mind, Javascript is a specification, not a single interpreter distributed to be recompiled and distributed for the browser it runs in. So, you'll often find cases where one bit of JS codes runs perfectly fine in one browser, but not another. Developers of platform X vs platform Y are always going to read specs a bit differently, unfortunately.
