As well, NS6 & 7 don't do js, but that I was prepared for. IE (of course) and Opera do just fine. ECCCHHHHH. Until I "retire" again (the end of August - oy, that's Yanni!), I just don't have the time to "chase" this sort of silliness.
[Edit for clarity]: I realize as I read back, that sounds as if I think java and js are the same thing. Not so, I know better; just that the "options" screen includes both....
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.
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....

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.
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!
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?

Many sites that use browser sniffing, for example, have problems with Firefox.
