Hello,

On the webpage https://www.drivethrurpg.com/pub_tools.php Firefox breaks. Image here for reference: https://imgur.com/a/382kw9L. The area in red in the first image is an error.

From the console I saw that the website is shifted to Quirks Mode.

From a discussion with their support they said that this is a Firefox issue, as the website does indeed work fine in Chrome and Edge.

Not sure why this is triggering Quirks Mode.

In the same imgur album (above) you can see that the page has a proper doctype HTML header.

Any ideas?

I have tried disabling all extensions, deleting cookies and website storage, private mode.

Quirks mode merely means that the website doesn't have a DOCTYPE specified, this can cause rendering issues, but not the error message you get. This DOCTYPE is normal theses days: <!DOCTYPE html>


If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin), always make sure such extensions do not block content.

You can check for issues with Enhanced Tracking Protection. Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages like blocked content.

What do other browsers show in that area where you have the red box in your image of Firefox?

I get errors on both Firefox and Chrome but I don't have a publisher account:

Uncaught SyntaxError: expected expression, got '<'     pub_tools.php:2379:1
