embedded gallery photos do not have navigation arrows at cyclingnews.com; clicking on the website logo does not allow reader to navigate to cyclingnews homepage

Posted

Here is a gallery where the problem occurs: http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/bespoked-uk-handmade-bicycle-show-gallery/ The links to the homepage from the logo stopped working in Firefox 18-24 months ago. It appears that there is an incompatibility between the cyclingnews website and the Mozilla browser. Perhaps the fix has to be made on the cyclingnews end, I don't know. The cyclingnews website is fully functional with Google Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox to support a smaller company and for privacy.

I updated Firefox to see if that helped. It did not. As I indicated in the original ticket, this has been happening with Firefox for the last 18-24 mos. Try opening the photo gallery in Chrome. When you mouse over the right and left sides of the top photo, arrows appear. Somehow those arrows do not appear in Firefox. Then, try clicking on the logo at top left. In Chrome, a click there returns you to the home page. In Firefox, for the past 18-24 Mos., the user can can no longer navigate to the home page in this manner.

I have confirmed the issue after using Win IE with no problem.

I did find the problem goes away using Firefox Safe Mode.
