www.usairways.com website locks after its opening screen with a javascript message flashing on bottom border. Can't copy that message (disappears )

Posted

Checkout www.usairways.com under Firefox v18.0.1. Notice that clicking any of the options fails to do anything with a javascript message trailing at bottom of page (can't copy it, since message disappears as mouse moves toward it from where it had clicked earlier on page). This occurs with java on or off (i.e., disabling java automatic blocking). This sites works fine under IE.

    Incidentally, why is Java still blocked if the latest version (7.11) not only is displayed, but indicated as installed and working?  Automatic block states this is for version 7.6 or lower.

Dear Mad Person:

     A no-add ons FF startup now enables the USAirways site to properly handle the button click and page change.  The error (?) message on the bottom with the addons installed (FF startup) is:    Javascript:Webform_DOPOSTBACKWITHOPTIONS (New   Webform_Postbackoptions ("CT100$phMain$CTlffifoWidget$Checkflightstatus", ""True, "fifoWiedget",""False, True)).

Does that message suggest anything? I tried accessing this page with FF JAVA addon enabled and disabled. No change. Changed add-on blocking via about:config. Still no improvement. The matter seems to suggest how FF is handling Java, but beyond that I am lost. IE handles the website just fine with the same java installation on my computer.

    Appreciate your continued support.
    Any news on ending the erroneous blocking of JAVA for version 7.11?

hello, can you try to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once? if not, maybe an addon is interfering here...
