When I go to (see URL below) I cannot invoke the scripts behind tabs "Overview, Manual etc " but when I use Google Chrome the Tabs all work?


When I use Google Chrome all the tabs with links work when I access www.bose.com.au Tabs are on URL below.


When I use Firefox I can access the URL www.bose.com.au but the tabs for Overview, In the box, Details/Manual, Reviews, and Accessories do not. Any ideas why? I have tried clearing Cookies and Cache etc from the Firefox menu as per your Q & A set up.

By the way, if I block scripts from adobetag.com, the box below the tabs is empty, just about a millimeter tall. If Ghostery or other extensions can block content on a site-by-site basis, that might explain the missing content.

Oddly, I don't see a Reviews tab (I have Overview, In the box, Details/manuals, Accessories).

Could you try Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to bypass interference by extensions (and some custom settings). More info: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using

Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled

In the dialog, click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset)

Any difference?
