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....
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?
