All of a sudden today, I can't get to the Wienerboard in Firefox. I get a (un)helpful windows error box that says "The file / cannot be found".

Anybody else having trouble? I'm O.K. in IE?

Working okay for me.

Try clearing your cache (Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Cache -> Clear) and see if the problem goes away.

BINGO!!! That's the stuff...we have a winner!

Thank you...I've been liking this browser and was worried I'd have to have the Microsoft monkey on my back again...

Me 'n' Firefox have been seeing a lot of things like that, usually when I try to hit the "Back" button. I think it has a funny idea about HTML that's different from everybody else, but I fix 'em as I find 'em.

The same thing happens to me when I vist FARK in Mozilla. When I view a comments thread, I can no longer go to the homepage.

You probably don't care, but what I've noticed is it's got something to do with relative links. If I use something like "A HREF=thread.php" in my HTML, Firefox forgets that the page I was just at has http://wienerboard.com/ in front of it and tries to go to (for example) "/index.php" instead of "http://wienerboard.com/index.php" - but if I edit the code and put in "A HREF=/thread.php" (note slash) it acts as it should if I hit the back button. Probably any defining of a base URL has something to do with it, too. I try to look at it not as Mozilla not working correctly, but me generating sloppy, possibly non-compliant code that I really should just fix...not that I wouldn't mind Mozilla covering for me.

(Also, I have no idea if this is what's happening with FARK or not)

I use the full Mozilla package, and haven't had any of those problems. I guess it's just a Firefox problem, and not for the full browser?



There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

As per tradition, I see we all have Tibetan flags today. Per Wikipedia, March 28 is the date the People's Republic of China dissolved the government of Tibet (or from the PRC's perspective, "emancipated the serfs of Tibet").
