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… 🙂
