Why is Metafilter "taking a massage" in Firefox?

Why is Metafilter "taking a massage" when I try to view the page on Firefox, but works perfectly fine when I view it in Internet Explorer? I should add that before this morning, Metafilter always worked fine in Firefox. And, despite MeFi's problems, AskMe and MeTa are working fine in Firefox right now.

Yahoo firefox search plugin for askme

The current firefox search plugins for Mefi were written ages ago for the built-in site search (hence they don't work anymore). Can any of our hotshot code cowboy members look into making one that uses the yahoo search? I'm particularly looking for one to search AskMe.

Firefox: Not playing well with AskMe?

Really not a problem, but I am curious: I click anywhere in AskMe, and Firefox doesn't ever seem to think the page is completely loaded? I get the busy signal cursor, and the Firefox load meter (bottom right-hand in Firefox) never completes, even though it seems like the whole page loads. Buh?

What's the relationship between cookies and the CaptchaImage?

What's the relationship between cookies and the CaptchaImage?

I've been playing with Firefox's cookie settings, trying to make it so that I don't have to login to MeFi every time. I can't seem to make it work. Given that we're using the CaptchaImage to prevent automated posting - will this ever work? Or will I always need to login each time I come to the site (once I've closed my browser)?

Metatalk layout in Firefox unusual

At least in Firefox for Mac, the layout of Metatalk is weird. There's no lefthand margin; and the top of the page contains these links, etc.:

MetaTalk is a discussion area for topics specific to MetaFilter itself, ranging from bug reports to feature requests to questions of content. The posts are sorted by date, and tagged by category.

Some helpful links:

MetaFilter meetups that are in progress, being planned, and/or coming soon

MetaTalk Formatting

Padding (?) on the top-right "MetaTalk" link makes a horizontal scroll bar appear on-click (screenshot). Seems to only happen in Firefox (1.5 on a Windows XP Home SP2 machine). This is totally the end of the world.

"Net Timeout" Error Loading Mefi in Firefox -- IE Fine

Ghost in the machine.

Ghost in the machine. I left my machine with Firefox 1.06 (with Metafilthy installed) logged in to this Metafilter thread for about 4 hours. When I returned this comment from all-seeing eye dog was in the comment box and I was logged out. So I couldn't post it, but it was a little confusing.
I suppose this could be a Metafilthy issue, a Firefox issue or something else again. Apologies if this is not the first time that someone has posted this bug. I didn't know what to search for to check.

Ginormous letters from broken comment

Uh, this comment has broken the thread. Ginormous letters are partially obscuring other comments.

Windows box, XP home ed, Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Semi-broken in latest version of IE; the text in quesiton is much smaller, but partially obscures the username/post time.

Have you seen CSS3 columns in Firefox 1.5 beta 1 yet?

Have you seen CSS3 columns in Firefox 1.5 beta 1 yet? Do you think they make ask mefi easier to read on huge monitors? Here's a avi demo movie of them in action.

Hyperlinked text weirdness

In the thread about setting suns and British empires, I made a comment to the effect of, WTF? I just didn’t understand what the discussion was about. After logging onto another computer, I finally see why. I wasn’t seeing the punch line link. In both Firefox and IE, I don’t see the hyperlinked text. This is not a problem in any other FFP. Weird; what gives?

Firefox and New Tabs

I have my preferences set to open links in a new window, but this should only apply to external links right? When I click [!] on a post, the flag form appears in the same tab (using Firefox obviously, on Windows), but when I hit the "Flag this post" button on the form, the result (including the redirect back to the thread) opens a new tab. I've noticed other situations too where internal metafilter links open in a new tab. Minor, but an annoyance of note.

Greasemonkey script displays picture next to username

Ever wondered wonder what that user looks like? I've written a quick greasemonkey script that adds photos of users next to their usernames. Photos were gleaned from meetup pictures and there are currently about 75 photos in the database (Firefox only).

If you do not have Greasemonkey, you can install the script by clicking here. If you have Greasemonkey, right click here and hit "Install User Script".

I'd like to know what you guys think.

Something's odd with my question thread.

Something's odd with my question thread. Here's what the bottom of the page looks like in Safari and Firefox. I reset Safari and I'm still getting the same thing.

I am TOO logged in. The thread has been taken out.

When viewing a deleted thread (While logged in) I see a bit at the bottom that says "You are not currently logged in. Log in or create a new account."

I can confrim that this is happening in every thread that is currently missing off of the front page.

Firefox 1.0, WinXP, &c.

Broken Posts: add them here. I also found a couple of threads that went wonky after adding keywords (1, 2). If anyone else has any nasties, we might as well batch them here.

How do I work this Firefox-thingy again?

Could there be a customization option for Firefox users to have links open in a new tab?

Metafilter login doesn't work for me on Firefox.

Metafilter login doesn't work for me on Firefox. Just sends me back to the homepage without logging me in. It does work on IE. Metatalk and Ask Metafilter seem fine on both browsers. I've deleted all cookies, etc, and still no luck. Can anyone suggest a solution other than "use IE" or "don't post to Metafilter"?

Firefox Bug

IE6 - opens new links in new window [as it's s'posed to];

Firefox 0.9.1 - doesn't.

I take it that's a FF bug, not a Mefi one?

Mefi coldfusion error

When I try to get onto mefi or any of its subsidiaries I get this coldfusion error.

This only happens in Firefox. I'm posting this with IE.

are you going to log in? huh huh huh?

I'm using Firefox on Windows XP, and I just tried to go to MeFi and then here to MeTa, and it kept pestering me to login. When did THAT happen? Or, as I'm guessing, is this a bug?

Mycroft searches for MeFi and MeTa

For those of us that use Mozilla/Firefox, I wrote up a couple Mycroft searches, one each for MeFi and MetaTalk. (they're listed in the "Undefined" category)

Firefox Bugs

I've switched to Firefox. I have my MeFi preferences set to open links in a new window. I have the Tabbrowser Preferences extension installed on firefox and everything set to open in new tabs, links on metafilter still bring up new windows. While I can just CTRL + click to open in a new tab, I'm wondering if this is a mozilla thing, or a mefi thing. Thanks.
