Javascript not working

When I visit this site:http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html I can no longer see the image thumbnails when I click on the image IDs. I contacted the site owner, and he said it worked for FF on his computer, but I'm afraid my javascript isn't working here. I did everything, cleared the cookies, ran Safe Mode, checked options- though i may have goofed. And I'm almost sure javascript is enabled here. I have Win XP. I don't want to check another browser; if the problem is here than it needs fixing. I'm waiting more word from the site owner, but I tried everything he suggested. So what do I do? Do I download another Javascript?

Réiteach roghnaithe

Let's divide the two issues:

(1) Firefox 21 install

By default, Firefox is installed here on Windows XP (32-bit):

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

If that's where your Firefox is located -- you can inspect your Firefox desktop shortcut to check -- then you did not install it in a strange location. Running the Firefox 21 installer should replace the Firefox 22 beta installation with Firefox 21, and pick up your current settings.

(2) Bookmarklet

An example of a popular bookmarklet is the Pinterest "Pin It" button you can drag to your Bookmarks Toolbar. Since this forum doesn't let us post draggable buttons that way, you have to create the bookmarklet in 4 steps.

(i) select and copy cor-el's script (Ctrl+c or right-click > Copy)

(ii) right-click the Bookmarks Toolbar and choose New Bookmark

(iii) paste the script into the Location field

(iv) Enter a short name for the button into the name field (e.g., FixApollo)

When you're on the site, clicking that button once will modify the scripts so that the links work. It should last until you leave and return to the page.

I can't handle the absolute moronic thinking that keeps taking configuration out of the browsers.

We should have MORE control not less. I am so done with firefox.

Thanks for the answer. Hope they enjoy losing market share even more...
