Question

iCloud website has massive usability issues - is it compatible?

I cannot use iCloud.com in Firefox at all. Starting from the login prompt there are many issues. From the e-mail field, you cannot use Tab to move to password field, only mouse. From the password field, you do not see the eye icon to show password (IE only?), and cannot use the clickable arrow to continue, only enter. Once signed in, you can click any of the icons such as Mail or Calender, but not the Help "?" in the corner. From inside any and all of the services (Mail, Reminders, etc) you lose complete control of any of the buttons, options, scrolling menus - everything. The back button on the website (iCloud icon) does not work, forcing you to use the browser back button. Clicking on another service presents the same issues - absolutely nothing is usable, clickable, or scrollable. It seems like Javascript has completely failed - though that is an uneducated guess in the dark.

This occurs on Windows 8 64bit and Firefox 18/19 Beta. I have gone through many troubleshooting steps and it has made no difference in the slightest. I have cleared all caches several times, from inside Firefox and through 3rd party utilities. Tested in Safe Mode to no avail. Manually removed several add-ons, checked all add-ons are fully up-to-date (as always), and reset all Firefox settings to default (except Hardware Acceleration that causes graphics issues in 8 - does not help iCloud.com enabled, though). It works fully in all other browsers with similar add-ons without issue. I have not done a full, complete reset and profile removal - that is next. However, I have a gut feeling that is not the issue at hand. I performed a clean install of Windows 8 and a clean install of Firefox less than 2 weeks ago.
