Firefox Problems

I'm told the site is hanging up for a lot of people. Especially in the Firefox browser.

Although I've supposed to not have BlogAds running, one ad slipped through, and I guess I have to run it until it expires. But as soon as that's done, I'll eliminate all the BlogAd code from the site -- which seems to be causing some hang-ups.

Pixy says he thinks the PJM ad might be causing hang-ups too. I'll write them to ask them about this.

I've asked phin to do a site redesign, but I was hoping to hold off on it until we switch to the new blogging software Pixy's got. Seems goofy to redesign the current software just for a month or so. But if simple fixes don't do the job, I'll see about a cleaner, simpler template to avoid these problems.

Here's another suggestion: Add an Internet Explorer add-on to your Firefox browser. This allows you, with the click of a button, to change a tab from running in Firefox to running in IE. You're still in Firefox -- it's just that tab that's now running as IE.

I realize that that may seem like a big step just to view a single blog (though people say that My Pet Jawa, for example, is demonstrating the same Firefox misbehavior), but I added it myself for other reasons -- for example, Javascript video would never play in Firefox for me, always telling me it was missing the plug-ins, never able to locate those missing plug-ins and install them -- and so now when I have that problem with Firefox, I just hit the display-as-IE button and am able to watch the video without having to actually open up IE.

If you're having that kind of problem, it's a cool little widget to have anyway.

Jiggity recommended that to me. It's sweet.

The new design, I think, is going to be pretty stripped down, without all this sidebar crap I've got going on. So load times should be quicker.
