  • [RC2] Various problems with Firebird/Mozilla/Netscape

    Problems I've found:

    "Quick Links" and other DHTML pulldown menus no longer work.
    "Manage Attachments" button doesn't work.

    Seems that a lot of this 'if browser=ie6' crap has killed a lot of functionality when browsing using other software.

    Can't confirm either of those.

    I've used all Gecko based browsers, KTML based, Opera 7 and IE6 and they all do the drop down menu's plus the Manage Attachments.

    Though 10 times out of 10. The Mozilla popup blocker is blocking the Manage Attachments button. Does clicking a 2nd time help?

    Can you provide a test account for you forum.

      You can close this... I looked around more in the bugs page and found something that helped. I reuploaded the /clientscript files and cleared the cache in Firebird. It's working fine now.

      Go figure.

      Thanks anyway.

        Firebird has the most evil cache in the world.

        I guess it varies from server to server. If we send the must-revalidate header for the javascript files this should force Mozilla to check the headers and it should notice there different.

        I'll go do some research now.

          Ok i've played about with this the past hour while eating.

          If you have mod_headers on your server you can make sure that validation is done on each page load.

          Though it _may_ force users to fetch the javascript on each page load which would generally be bad. I tested it locally but i wouldn't be able to tell if it did re-fetch it when its running at 100mbps

          Code:
          		<IfModule mod_headers.c> 
          				<Files ~ "\.js$">
          						Header append Cache-Control "must-revalidate"
          				</Files>
          		</IfModule>
          Time to take off the magic hat

              Because programmers do things like that. At least I do, and its nice to see I'm not alone.

                  I added this to the 'header' template and it works great!
                  It almost feels like the forums are faster :|! (seriously..)
