Why do the hyperlinks on my home page not work in Firefox 29
After downloading FF 29, the hyperlinks on my provider's home page fail to work. If I try to select them, I get a small pop-up window stating that the browser is not supported. FF 28 worked just fine.
What has gone wrong?

It sounds like it's an issue with the provider's home page, possibly wrongfully flagging Firefox 29 as unsupported.
Do you have a link that you are able to share, so that we may investigate?
We look forward to hearing back from you.
Hi Ralph, thanks for the quick response. The problem occurs on my (Dutch) provider's website at
Some of the links work, on the news site, but the others get the unsupported browser message.
cps1954: This is indeed a problem with the page. I can reproduce it as well.
Ralph: Should a bug be filed or does it need to be reported to the business that runs the homepage?
I went ahead and created a Bugzilla ticket #1004304 to track the bug, and at least bring it to the attention of the engineering teams.
In the meantime, cps1954, the best thing to do would be to contact the admins of that website directly and inform them about the problem.
We hope this is helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for filing that. :) I've edited your post to link to the bug report if you don't mind. Hope I'm not moderating something I can't :)
That is a problem with a script that has also come up in another thread and is caused by user agent sniffing and testing for window.controllers.
This file came up in this thread as well: [/questions/997702] Where the login button on this page use the same script:
So this script needs to be updated to work with current Firefox versions.

Thanks all for your help. I have contacted the provider to see if they can fix the problem.
Seems like they are working on a fix to be delivered soon, according to this tweet:

To follow up - It seems like it has been fixed on [www.kpnvandaag.nl].

Marking Ralph's answer as the solution. Fix is pushed.
