> NS6 & 7 don't do js, but that I was prepared for.
Very strange... NS6 & 7 and Firebird should all run JS just fine...
Do you have any additional 'security' software or OS settings that would disable JS?
If not, you might want to uninstall and reinstall the lot of them.

Um. Firewalls.... but my 'net settings in all browsers are "vanilla" (*snicker*). Js/java stuff is pretty much "loose" no matter which browser settings I'm looking at....
So I don't see how the firewalls would stop the js.... but it's been a long day/week/month/year/four year span - so enlighten me please.
[Edit]: May have just answered this one myself. Went looking in ZoneAlarm, and the "other" browsers weren't fully "allowed" access. I'll post back with updates....

Rambo Tribble: (oy - THERE'S a nick to enjoy!) I have unset/reset everything I can think of or dig out of the firewalls/browsers. I still get NO js activity in Firefox or either NS version (6.2, 7.1). Qui?

If that checkbox is not checked, check it and it should work fine.

Yup - boxes for both js and java were checked by default, and remain checked. And it still doesn't work.
Has to be my firewalls I guess. BTW - my 'net options in control panel are set as loose as they can be for java etc.

But why would your firewall only affect you when using Firefox?
If Opera didn't work either, I would guess it was some VBScript thing that didn't work.
Do you have the actual JS? Does it depend on some IE-specific coding that, for whatever reason, Opera handles as well? Generally when Firefox chokes on JS for me, that's the explanation.

Why only in some and not others? No clue. Is js "installed"? Ditto - where would I begin to look for it if it's not in Program Files? Is this something that resides in a folder under Windows? Is it upgradeable? Since I've never had this problem before with js, I simply haven't any idea where to start.
Edit: I believe I misunderstood what you were getting at, ergophobe. In the case of the js on my own sites, yes, I have the original scripts; since they work just fine in some of the available browsers but not in others, and since they haven't anything specific to IE only (unless they also have a section for NS as one of them does), I'm really at a loss. I've checked with a couple of people who normally use NS and they don't seem to have any problems "seeing" the scripts as meant to display.
AND btw, I'm not getting script-error notifications either. *sigh* I'd be willing to bet this is some stupid something I did without realizing it - happens to me fairly frequently!

Okay - went back to the places I got my scripts and did some checking. They're all for IE5+ or Opera, not a one of 'em for anything else in the way of a browser. Guess that answers THAT question!
So logically, the sites I browse to other than my own where js isn't working are in the same situation: only for specific browsers, not all of them.
I don't write js or anything like myself; wonder if there's a script-site out there with better browser coverage?

That's what I was driving at. I get all sorts of sites that do stupid things like tell me that I need to "upgrade" to Netscape 4 to be abe to use their site.
Many sites that use browser sniffing, for example, have problems with Firefox.
