Firefox unsupported?

Using fiirefox to browse the forum - and my browser is now not supported and apparently “unable to display rich content” so I just get an unstyled basic text page. Whereas a (relatively) ancient version of Chrome works fine - is this intended? or is the ardour forum using some new kind of magic css foo that us mere mortals are not able to comprehend?

No issues here with Firefox 105.0.1 (Linux Mint)

Works with FF 105.0.1 in Windows as well.
Perhaps you need to clear the web cache and restart FF?

FF 102.3.0esr from debian/stable renders the site just fine too.

We have updated the forum engine to discourse 2.9.0.beta10 yesterday. So perhaps the issue is indeed a local cache?

Which version of Firefox are you using?

Same here. FF v78.14.0esr.

On the plus side, the site looks much better with “rich content” disabled.

Apparently “Discourse is designed for the next 10 years of the Internet, so the minimum browser requirements are high.” I’m not sure I’m designed for the next 10 years of the internet, never mind my browser… Odd statement though, because I’m quite sure youtube, facebook, twitter and many others are also designed for “the next 10 years of the internet” (and beyond, more’s the pity…) and they work just fine :slight_smile:
I’ll just use Chrome for the Ardour site since that seems to work.

I only use Firefox on Linux and Windows and have never had any problems with the Ardour site. If yours is not working it is some local problem with your installation.

That is over 13 months old. You are asking for problems by skipping 13 months of bug and security fixes.

Same here. Firefox on Linux for most of it’s existence (GA in 2004, apparently), and it works fine. Keep it up to date. Clear out your cache regularly.

Wrong. The updates were causing problems. I reverted back to an older build and locked it.

Am I the only one who sees ‘Discourse’ and my brain wants to think ‘Discord’ which is an entirely different thing? Anyway I guess the version of Firefox I was using is too old. Sorry for the noise.
