Forum website doesn't work on Firefox Win7


#1

Tested with Firefox on safe mode / no addons. Win 7. FF 59.0.1 (64-bit). Have noticed this for the past month or so. User is presented with a blank/white screen on all forum pages.

Works fine in Chrome.

Console error output:

Same FF version, WIN10 - works flawless…


#3

You’re right – I tested on Win 10 and it works fine. Very interesting. I’ll update the subject accordingly


#4

I noticed this as well with FF on MacOS. I then tried the Discourse website and got the same blank page. Tried various cleaning steps, but did not manage to get it working.


#5

Forum doesn’t work for me either on two different Win 10 machines. One is 1703 and the other 1709.
Firefox 59.0.1 on both machines.


#6

Ok, found the problem. I recently disabled the web notification feature in about:config:

dom.webnotifications.enabled = false

If I set it back to true, the forum works fine. I hate web notifications!


#7

Ok, I left it enabled in about:config but used the newer GUI method of turning off notifications. The forum still seems to work. Go figure. Hopefully this setup will basically disable push notifications still…


#8

Nice detective work @drwtsn32 ! I also have the same notifications disabled.

Question remains: why is this setting render-blocking particularly for this forum / discourse?


#9

related: Forum.freecodecamp.org not working in OSX Firefox? - freeCodeCamp Forum

Seems to be an issue with the discourse code.

Do ya’ll think the next step is to file a bug report on the discourse github? Happy to do so…


#10

Posted bug report to the official discourse forum:


#11

It’s been fixed.

Now @kenkendk just needs to run an update.


#12

That is now done. Happy that it was resolved!


#13

Woohoo! That was fast. Nice work team!


#14

No this is not true, yes this s an temporary issue that has been solved by Firefox support easily and now there is no problem with Firefox.
