Refresh problem with Firefox 3.6.20

  1. On starting Techspot with Firefox, just the last two days the home page loads fine, but something is not imaged at right-hand side maybe 'features and reviews' ?? This causes Firefox to instantly enter a refresh state with a blank screen, from which it does not seem to complete.

    There is no problem under IE8 or Avant Browser.

    From what I've experienced, it's best to run newer versions of Firefox, because XenForo (TechSpot's forum software) runs with a lot of different tools and plugins, such as TinyMCE, that need updated browsers to run correctly.

    That's the way I see it, but Julio or a developer would have better input here...

    I think we've revisited this topic a few times recently. It's really hard to move forward and keep compatibility for older browsers when there are better drop-in replacements.

    Ahhh, I think it just needed a Flash update.
