on my site i have a page on which javascript pre-loads the content and then shows it. this thing was working perfectly fine on firefox 26 but soon as i updated to firefox 27 the content doesn't show after loading

Like i have an image for 'loading content' which first appears and then the loaded content shows up. This image is still showing in version 27 but the content which shows after is not showing at all.

I inspected the page and the divs and content is there but its just not visible somehow.

Please help me with this problem .. im stuck with this if it doesn't show up. Thanks.

Because of many previous issues with how Oracle has handled Java related security threats, the new versions of Firefox disable Java plugins by default.

You will need to activate the Java plugin(s) to view JavaScript content.

For more information about using Java in Firefox, see the articles How to allow Java on trusted sites and Use the Java plugin to view interactive content on websites.

this doesn't solve the problem. actually its working on all other browsers, the content is showing. but its not working on firefox 27. what problem could it be which is preventing version 27 from loading the content when its working just fine on version 26 (i just checked it on a different system with version 26).

also there was an instance when the same content wasn't loading on version 26 also but it was a problem due to some pinterest script. once i removed it everything became just fine i.e. content started loading (on version 26). Now, if that helps in deducing the problem please help me out.

You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the cache and cookies only from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window.

Unfortunately, after trying all that you mentioned the problem still remains .. :|

The problem happened in front of my eyes, on Firefox 26 it was working.

I updated to Firefox 27 went back to my site it stopped working. Its still working on the systems having Firefox 26 installed.

Must be some version related bug/issue.

Seeking further help ...

Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page (i.e. no authentication or signing on required)?

This link you have posted above doesn't work correctly for me either.

Feel free to file a bug report about this issue to Bugzilla.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

The link loads for me in recent 30.0a1 Nightly

Wesley Branton, JavaScript and Java are not the same thing as JavaScript was originally going to be called LiveScript which would have helped with people mistaken them as related. So you do not need Java in order to run JavaScript.

Doesn't work for me either.

The Browser Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) shows some errors:

First off, the link doesn't work on my browser either.

Secondly, I looked at the page using the Firefox Website Developer tools. The page has various JavaScript and CSS errors when it loads in Firefox.
This could be causing the issues. I noticed above that someone stated that they worked in the Nightly version of Firefox, therefore I am wondering if an incompatibility error has been patched in the Nightly version that exists in the current version.

I am not sure since I am not on the development team, but this is still a valid explanation. If this is the case, there is nothing that can be done, unless you are able to find an add-on that will allow you to patch the issue.

Sorry for any inconvenience. I will try to speak with a developer very soon.

This page work, but links from these page give an empty frame.

This also happens in the current Firefox Beta (28) release, but both current Aurora (29) and Nightly (30) builds work.
So this sounds like a regression that got fixed, but did get back ported.
