Re: Domino Web Access broken in Firefox 1.5?

Well it appears I'm not the only one having problems with Domino Web Access in Firefox 1.5 and it appears I'm not alone. Chris and Richard are also having some problems with it...

I have been looking into it some more and have tried various combinations of Java. I thought it might be it since I recently downgraded my JRE from 1.5 to 1.4.2 due to some deployment issues with a J2EE application. But unfortunately it wasn't it. After poking a little more I took a look at the CSS using the JavaScript console (in the Tools-menu and it appears there are numerous CSS errors there.

Considering that the styling of the richtext editing is probably being done with CSS it makes sense that CSS errors would cause havok. Misspellings in the CSS probably doesn't help either... :-)

In a VM I just rechecked all the previous versions leading to Firefox 1.5 (RC3, RC2, RC1, B2, B1) without any success. I guess I'll have to downgrade to 1.0.7 to use Domino Web Access in Firefox.

Bummer - now I know what to ask Santa for Christmas... :-)

Domino Web Access broken in Firefox 1.5?

After upgrading my Firefox to 1.5 I have been unable to run Domino Web Access through Firefox. The inbox and and calendar displays just fine but I am unable to write new e-mails or reply to received e-mails. Basically everything that requires me to write in the "Body"-item is "broken".

As you can see from the screenshot it looks like Firefox is unable to start the component it uses for "rich text" editing. The page finishes loading but no errors are displayed in the JavaScript console or via LiveHTTPHeaders.

Bummer...

UPDATE: Another guy at my office run iNotes under Firefox 1.5 - maybe it's just my copy...
