How come my linkdin profile from Internet Explorer is different in Firefox?
I have more connection, endorsements, and recommendation when I use Internet Explore then when I go into Linkedin using mozilla. Why is that? Shouldn't they be the same?
I have a Super Star rating using Internet Explore ...I have a starters rating using Mozilla.

I've never compared, and would agree they should be the same.
The forum software detected your Firefox as version 24. Is that correct?
If so, since we are not able to debug issues in ancient versions of Firefox, can you compare in Firefox 36?
Also, version 24 is not secure; Mozilla discloses security flaws after each new release. Is something holding you back from upgrading to Firefox 36? Please let us know so we can suggest solutions or workarounds.
If it is UI related, please see: How to make the new Firefox look like the old Firefox.
I did the upgrade and nothing has changed !!
The following is the link to my Linkedin Profile using Windows Explorer:
This is how my profile looks using Mozilla FireFox;
I don't have a premium account, so your first link doesn't show a huge amount (screen shot attached). The second link of course leads to editing my own profile... What if you compare the identical link on both browsers?
Here is the identical link in both browsers:
Windows Internet Explorer: https://www.linkedin.com/profile/edit?trk=nav_responsive_sub_nav_edit_profile
When I am on a PC with IE11 I'll take a look. But I'll be looking at the edit screen for my own profile, since obviously I do not have permission to edit yours!
Do you want to post comparison screen shots pointing out the areas of difference? You can cut out personal information that should not appear on a public forum. Either PNG or JPG format is good (when photographs are included, JPG compression is better, otherwise PNG compression is cleaner).
Also, in case you have different add-ons between the two browsers, do you want to test in Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to deactivate extensions and some advanced features of Firefox. More info: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.
You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using either:
- "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
- Help menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
Not all add-ons are disabled: Flash and other plugins still run
After Firefox shuts down, a small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset).
Any difference, or should I say, any less difference?
