Firefox having problems with Javascript on Facebook and Hotmail (and more)

Posted

I've only noticed this in the last day or so, but I can't do a lot of things that involve Javascript on Facebook and Hotmail (so far the only sites ive had trouble on). On facebook I'm unable to click on a lot of the buttons that pop up using javascript. And on hotmail after I log in I can't open any emails, create new emails or delete emails, change folder, can't do anything. I've tried running firefox in safe mode, so it is definitely something to do with firefox and not one of my extensions.

URL of affected sites

www.facebook.com, www.hotmail.com

Did you allow the correct domains in the NoScript extension that you have installed?

Right-click the NoScript toolbar or Statusbar button and see what is & isn't allowed for JavaScript.

Question owner

It nothing to do with my addons because I tried in safe mode and still got the same problem. But I do have all of the correct domains allowed in NoScipt.

Question owner

Same issue with 3.6.3 in Ubuntu 10.04. It started a day ago, but only over www.hotmail.com

Question owner

I am having the exact same problem with my hotmail. However, it works fine with Internet Explorer.

Hotmail support details how to optimize the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser to work well with Windows Live Hotmail. But not Firefox.

Any suggestions on how to optimize FF??
