TechRepublic web site does not work on Firefox - FOR SHAME!!

glnz
It is amazing how the entire TechRepublic website does not work well on Firefox with typical security. Even if I set my NoScript to permit all scripts on TechRepublic pages, many of TechRepublic's page features do not work. I must always reopen in IE.
For shame!

      So far, I have not encounter any difficulties in using TR site with my FF version 28. By the way, I used to be a FF fans, but no longer.

      if you didn't check you network performance, better check it before anything else. The easiest way is to do it with www.nescan.co - follow the link and click on the green button. This is a web application that will perform a series of network tests for modern Web Services like WebSockets, WebRTC and XHR. Additionally a profile of your browser, operating system and environment will be generated. When the scan is done you will receive a unique url, share it with us to get your browser solved.

      I usually have to switch between chrome, ie and firefox depending on link.
      It killed TR for me.

      Also, the fact that blog posts no longer show in discussions.

      of the issues you are seeing? As I use FF without issue, with and without NoScript, so I really would like to see them so I can get a bug filed.

      Also I would need your OS.

      Thanks!

      Tammy - sent you two emails. It's Win XP Pro SP3 at work, on a Dell Optiplex 780 with 4GB RAM. Right now, I'm on IE. Techrepublic on Firefox is hopeless.

      I thought it was Firefox, but obviously I was mistaken.
