Some months ago, user "junkbondman" asked this question somewhat poorly, and partly as a result got a non-responsive boilerplate answer by someone who did not read the question's key (if cryptic) point:
> Select a service type. THIS IS WHERE THE WEB SITE FAILS TO WORK PROPERLY
That's too bad, because 16 other users identified "HAVE SAME PROBLEM" - as had, no doubt, a large majority of the 677 viewers of the question. However, maybe to get a better answer we need to start with a better definition of the problem.
The way that the USPS site <cns.usps.com> works to print a label is that addresses (return and forward) are defined, the package weight and value are specified, and then a shipping mode is selected before paying and printing the label. The shipping mode is selected in a section titled "Select a service type", via an embedded table using a vertical scroll-bar that Firefox cannot handle. [Firefox is not alone in that. For example, Safari under iOS cannot scroll the embedded table, but USPS provides a mobile app which mitigates that problem by presenting the table differently.]
Now, it should be stipulated that the table is the worst element in a bad page that does not begin to pass W3 validation [71 errors, 19 warnings - looks like government work]. However, other browsers (like Google Chrome) handle that table with apparent ease. The question is whether Firefox should be able to do so - and, if so, how? As of Fx 33.0, this still does not work.
(1) Unfortunately, to examine this problem requires setting up a USPS account in order to see the shipping page. Setting up the account is easy, but it is a small extra burden to examining the problem.
