that replies at Q&A and new discussions wouldn't post. I'd get a Page not found' error and when I try to send again I get the 'Duplicate post' error. But hours later the post is NOT there at all. I was ussing Fire Fox 16 on Zorin 5.
I upgraded to Zorin 6 (overdue for it) and ended up with Fire Fox 18. Then I couldn't read any posts in line, but they opened up in a new tab OK. I didn't even try to make any posts.
Today I'm at where I do some volunteer work and using their Win 7 Enterprise system. This reply is coming from MSIE 9 - the system also has Fire Fox 18 (upgraded in the last week). I have TR open in both browsere and there is a very dramatic difference in the look of the same page. FF is definately handling the Java in a very different manner to MSIE at the moment. However, I do note the Java Platform SE 6 U24 220.127.116.11 has been disabled by FF as ".... known to cause security or stability issues." - with a link to:
Java Plugin has been blocked for your protection.
Why was it blocked?
Outdated versions of the Java plugin are vulnerable to an actively exploited security issue. All users are strongly encouraged to update their Java plugin. For more information, please read our blog post or Oracle's Advisory.
Who is affected?
All Firefox users who have installed the Java plugin, JRE versions below 1.6.0_31 or between 1.7.0 and 1.7.0_2.
What does this mean?
Users are strongly encouraged to disable the problematic add-on or plugin, but may choose to continue using it if they accept the risks described.
When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.
