If you have Firefox and can read this, please tell me

by Stephen Tall on January 20, 2006

Thanks to those who’ve let me know this blog is invisible if you’re using Firefox et al browsers. I don’t pretend to know why, but – being a Lib Dem – I’ve adopted the precautionary approach, and have deleted the stats counter in case it was that which was buggering it up.

If you still can’t read this, I throw up my hands in mock despair.

Enjoy reading this? Please like and share:


It’s fine now Stephen.

It might be that your stats counter code was somehow interfering with the style sheet part of the template. You could try adding it back in the < body > rather than the < head >… not sure if that will fix things, but worth a go.

I never had a problem reading this site using Firefox on either a mac or PC.

I have Firefox – v.1.5 and have had no problems reading this blog on either a Windows or Linux PC.

Thanks guys – I’m going to try the stats counter again using Phil’s advice. Let me know if it re-buggers things up.

Nope – apart from the first article, the rest are covered with a black block except the headlines. Firefox 1.0.4 on a Mac running OSX 10.4

By the way it does the same in the latest Safari on a Mac.

Can read the headlines, dates and the posted / comments / links footer but the black box covers the actual content of the posts, apart from links which show up orange on the black. That suggests it might be a CSS problem? I’m using Firefox 1.5 on WinXP SP1.

By the way – it appears to work fine now in my Firefox on Mac (without upgrading it to latest version too).

Ditto Safari/Mac
