Laptop is a G4 and it works fine.<br><br>I agree something is corrupt. At this point it doesn't matter since the problem is peculiar to one website and I have alternatives to view the site when I wish. It's just darned odd and drives me crazy wondering what the problem is. I hate when stuff happens like this. I like to know reasons why rather than just brushing it off. Oh well...<br><br>

It may be a cache FUBAR, at your browser or the webserver or the web app cache, or a combo of all the above.<br><br>This happens to me somewhat regularly with dynamic sites, and manifests itself differently with a lot of different looks. Sometimes an interface graphic won't come in, sometimes the wrong feed sync comes in, sometimes links in a div won't work or it's unstyled, sometimes a WYSIWYG interactive form function won't work or WYSIWYG, a few days ago my browser couldn't process one of the MacMinute stylesheets (they seemed to use multiple sheets for different parts, with the layout sheet and some other styling working, but a lot of styling not working - no clue, didn't check source - just blew away browser cache and fixed it), etc, bla bla bla.<br><br>So far, for me, 100% of the time, blowing away the browser cache fixes things. IIRC, I once had to nuke the cache then reboot the browser.<br><br>There's a ton of caching going on, in Apache, Apache modules/bolt ons, whatever the preprocessor is, pre-processor modules/bolt ons, the web app, perhaps web app modular caching modules, and the database, and this stuff doesn't just flow together on file names, but also table IDs, etc, and if stuff's also coming in from remote sources, then there's all that caching going on over there, too, as well as what's in sync in your browser cache. So, sometimes there's a glitch .<br><br>In my experience, nukin the browser cache has fixed it 100% of the time.<br><br>Ed<br><br>[color:purple]Information isn't a connection - It doesn't stir people</font color=purple><br>
Since it happens with another user it's something system level. Quit all browsers, pull everything out of Library/Internet plug-ins. Reinstall Flash, try it then. We'll go from there.<br><br>Edit - After clearing the cache that is, like Ed mentioned.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Reboot on 09/07/08 02:59 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
The experiment will have to wait. "The Adobe Flash Player download centre is currently unavailable." Site is down for maintenance.<br><br>I had previously cleaned the caches. It was the first thing I thought of. (should have mentioned that). I even used Onyx to clean out all my other misc caches as well.<br><br>I will try your experiment during the week.<br><br>
I've had similar problems with Flash, Marg. Reinstalling it solved the problem, but after a while the problem recurs. Also, the reinstallation of Flash took forever and a day the last time I had to do it.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

I have a problem too. The decision by the FIA to penalize Hamilton and take his win away. One of the best F1 race finishes ever re-decided by some suits in a room long after the trophies are handed out. Great race at a great track with an extremely unpredictable finish. It was great whether Raikkonen or Hamilton won. Looked to me liked both guys could have been called on the carpet for various moves in the last couple of laps, but it's racing, let them race! Hamilton gave back the position after the chicane... bah, whatever.<br><br>Anyways, in conclusion - great race! As usual - the FIA suxor.<br><br>Chris<br><br><a href="http://www.light-imagery.com/index.html"target="_blank"></a><br><br>
No kidding! I was shocked to read the news that Hamilton had been penalized. As far as I'm concerned, and the same with most blogs I've read, Hamilton won fair and square. <br><br>What's with Ferrari constantly getting away with stuff but everyone else gets nailed? I can only conclude Ferrari has deep pockets and the FIA isn't adverse in accepting. <br><br>I sure hope the championship isn't decided by the outcome of Spa.<br><br>Looking forward to seeing the night race in Singapore!<br><br>
Troubleshooting Firefox is easy. It's a stand-alone app, so you only concern yourself with Firefox. Safari is a whole other problem. Much like I.E. for Windows, Safari is tied to the operating system. Things like Security updates, Quicktime updates, WebKit updates.... they all affect Safari. This is pretty much why I don't install minor updates to the system. <br><br>FWIW, I've had that happen in Firefox once (random work stoppage of links on a previously working fine site). I emptied Firefox's cache (did it manually to be sure) and it cured the problem.<br><br>
