It seems that the Mozilla Addons website does not load correctly any more in IE and the errors below are generated on XP (IE8), Windows 7 (IE9) and Windows 8 (IE10). It seems to be a JavaScript error from the messages from webpage error popup.

Browsing any addon specific page (NoScript, Menu Editor, Flashblock, etc) all seem to hang with the 'loading-more.gif' graphic showing constantly and none of the lower tabs (Version Information, etc) will open to show information.

I know technically this isn't a Firefox issue but I use IE to check version compatibility of addons before loading in Firefox. Perverse I know but hey it works, or used to until very recently.

i kinda think addons designed for firefox in a firefox site should be loaded in firefox. maybe now is a compatability issue with IE since it is designed differently.

This wasn't a question about loading Firefox extensions in IE which would not have a clue about the contents of the .XPI file.

This was about an error on the addons page which seems to stop ANY of the pages from showing details of the extension such as user reviews, developer feedback and version history...

Viewing from Firefox they just show as compatible and versions over 3.6 but from IE you could see what versions the extension was compatible with, ie 9 thru 15 which is far more helpful when deciding which to deploy in a workplace.

Have tried this on four different machines with the same outcome for viewing in IE!

You can check what Firefox versions the Extensions are compatible with if you scroll down the page for a Extension and click on Version History and even the See complete version history link then for full list.
