new twitter and hootsuite show blank page in firefox 3.6.10 - but load perfectly in windows vista
when i try to log in to either the new twitter interface, or hootsuite in firfox 3.6.10 i get a blank page with a small row of links across the top - none of them are clickable.
if i log in to the same sites using windows vista everything is perfect.
i have installed 3.6.10 this morning, but your guess says 3/5/13

Found a solution for this.
- Go to "about:config" in the url bar
- search for dom.storage.enabled
- Make sure the value is set to true (mine was false, and this appears to break new twitter)

I have FF for Windows 3.6.10 and there definitely is no 'dom.storage.enabled' in about:config.
From I've read since posting the above, 'dom.storage.enabled' may only be in the Mac version of Firefox
If you don't have 'dom.storage.enabled' then you should create a new preference with that name and set it to 'true'.
- Right click. Click 'New' -> 'Boolean'.
- In the ensuing dialog box enter 'dom.storage.enabled'. Click OK.
- In the next dialog box select 'True'. Click OK.
You may need to restart Firefox -- not sure.
In my case, default value for 'dom.storage.enabled' was true. After it was set to false, new twitter was loaded successfully. OS Windows 7 64bit Firefox 3.6.12
possible cause, and solution.
Adblock Plus is also blocking the page. I Don't know how exactly... ..which urls.
I have 50/50 working links at the top of the page. and the rest is white.
when I stop ADP the site will load normal.
sorry for my bad English.

same problem for me! twitter works on Opera and Chrome (windows 7 64bits), but not on firefox 3.6.13: there I can only see some header. I disabled all my add-on and I try to change "dom.storage.enabled" from true to false and vice versa but nothing hapened!

I had the same problem (Win7 64bit FF 3.6.15) - simply flushing my recent browser history did the trick for me
This worked perfectly. Thanks.
Why is my screen blank? Is Twitter Down?
Nope, it's a just a bug, but you can still use Twitter!
Some users have reported that clicking to preview #NewTwitter yields a blank screen with only the top navigational bar (see the image below for an example).
Try these steps first:
I just was forced into NewTwitter & had this problem. about:config solution not helpful to me, so searched on Twitter for answers: https://support.twitter.com/groups/32-something-s-not-working/topics/133-top-issues/articles/266189-blank-screen-on-twitter had suggestions. Step 1: clear your cache and cookies - I didn't want to clear all my cookies (may want to eat some later) so instead just cleared all Twitter cookies. Works fine now. No other steps needed. Tools - Options - Privacy - Remove Individual Cookies - scroll down to twitter folder, then I removed indiv. each cookie in Twitter folder.
Hope this helps others too. Bill4Jesus
