doesn't work in Firefox (on Linux)

Mind that age!

This blog post is 12 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical. doesn't work in Firefox (on Linux)If you do web design, making your pages work in different browsers can be very frustrating. The most common troublemaker is Internet Explorer and I think everyone who's ever tried hand-coding CSS has experienced. Another thing that makes it hard is simply lack of time to test it in all different browsers and platforms.

But! if it makes you feel any better even Apple is struggling as this screenshot shows.

I've seen work in Firefox on other computers so clearly it's not a problem on all Firefoxes but you'd think a big site like this must have heard of this and done something about it. If you think that what happens is that the images aren't loaded that not the case. This problem has been around for a while for me now. And no, I don't have Firebug or any other debuggers switched on as I open this site.



Works fine for me.

Works fine for me. Maybe a problem in your end.


Images are on another server (akamai) and you maybe have FF set up to not load images from other servers... just a guess.


apple keeps on closing my firefox on different parts of the apple website


I see you're using Adblock. Try disabling that for and you'll get a little surprise! ;D

I have the same problem. Firefox 2/3 on Windows Vista (had the same prob. on XP), turned off AdBlock without improvement. The Apple Store is the only site I have this problem with.
