Default Ubuntu issue accessing the forum

Does anyone have issues with using the forum using Ubuntu OS with Firefox?

I use Ubuntu pretty much for everything now except gaming since WINE doesn't seem to cut it on a lot of things, but I really hate getting into Windows anymore unless I have to.

For some reason, when I try to submit anything, a message, post, even when I tried to register to the site, it stalled. Eventually it popped up a window asking if I wanted to download the .php file?!? I use Ubuntu on another forum without issue that is pretty much identical to this one in terms of layout, but I for some reason have problems with this forum.

Anyone have an idea? I really want to get back to Ubuntu but I'm trying to read as much as I can on this forum so I'm sorta stuck in Windows until I can resolve the problem.

You get at least 10 cool points for identifying the problem.

Weird.. must just be my setup then. I'll have to look deeper into it I guess.

Thanks, and I'll be patient

I'm still using Windows so I can access the forum.. just really don't like Windows anymore since I've started using Ubuntu.

Yes, I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu.. 10.04 LTS

I'm not sure of the firefox version, but I just updated it last week so it is the latest version with the latest patch.

I'm not familiar with those forums, but I can give a look there too. I really don't understand why it cannot access this forum, but can access a near identical format forum without a problem. I can view anything I want with it, but can't submit anything...no posts, pm's, etc.

Ubuntu Forums

you just converted to Linux didn't you ?

Well... I hope I am the first to say this to you...

WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You just may find that this OS is the OS all other OS's (i.e. Mac & Microsoft) copy there idea's from and make others pay hundred's of dollars for... while you get the latest and greatest for free with updates and upgrades weekly!!! (just remember to update...lol)



Ubuntu Forums is your one stop shop for any support issues you may have with Ubuntu Linux... Instead of calling Microsoft or Apple... you have a online reference, and members that will help you 100% of the way. and if it a bug or you think it is a bug, submit it to ubuntu and it will be looked into and fixed not just for you but for everyone... Linux is free and once you get the hang of it (it takes time... remember when you first started using a computer... you had to learn how to use it... well you are going to have to re learn computers all over again...) you will find it is actually easier than MAC or Windows... and you wont ever have a issue with your computer again... If you give linux time... i promises you wont be disappointed... and you will even have more money because you don't have to buy all that crap again!!!

Hey buddy I am having a hard time trying to re-produce your problem...

Let me ask for someone's help real quick

(this is also the crappy part of linux... learning it... like i said you litterally have to re-learn computers all over again... IMHO small price to pay to be immune to all the Internet threats that are out there...)

LOL!

Ya, I haven't been using Linux that long, maybe 3 months now. I've figured a lot out already.. even customized it pretty good the way I want it. I'll head over to those forums and see if I can figure it out. Thanks for helping!

A couple of things to try in Firefox to diagnose your issue:

1. clear your cache (Tools -> Clear Recent History) -> Range (Everything) Details (check Cache only)

if this doesn't work you could also clear your Cookies (caution: this may clear some of your saved user names and passwords, so be sure you remember them all before doing this) and if this doesn't work clear everything

2. check for any JavaScript errors during login and posting (Tools -> Error Console)

3. install Live Headers then (Tools -> Live Headers) check for errors during login and posting

4. Google any errors you find

Well, I did all of those recommendations and it still didn't work so I installed Google Chrome and it seems to be working just fine now. I don't know what is wrong with Firefox, but it sure wouldn't let me in here.

Anyhow, this browser seems to be pretty good anyhow so I think I'll just stick with it and forget about Firefox for now. Thanks to all that attempted to help!

Since this seems to be a FF issue, I did a query on the Mozilla Forums.

If you're interested, you might want to have a look at some of the responses.

That's a good site^^^ the issue is is not solved but its a good reference... FF is just having issues with POST style forums i guess... thats what i took from reading it... Guess Mozilla will have to correct it

But on the bright site google chrome IMO is a much faster and better browser... it smokes FF in speed and the veiwing area is much larger... all the tab crap and url input area it is all condenced to the top... I like the larger veiwing area and I also think the asthetics of it are better looking
