My kid's Elementary School has a website that is not completely viewed when I use Firefox, but it is completely viewed when I use Internet Explorer or Chrome

Posted

My kid's Elementary School has a website that is not completely viewed when I use Firefox, but it is completely viewed when I use Internet Explorer or Chrome. The website in question is http://nes.chccs.k12.nc.us/

The middle column in the website is not viewable correctly with Firefox (a lot of information is actually missing, making Firefox useless). It works fine with IE or Chrome. This is confirmed by the school IT person, who then later added the disclaimer at the top of the website: For best and most complete viewing of this website, please use Google Chrome browser. It would be better to try a way to fix the problem in Firefox....Thanks for any help on this.

Tried using Firefox Safe Mode. Same problem.

Note: The browser takes about a minute for the whole page to load.

I see some error messages in the Web Console about content that is loaded in an iframe.

So it looks that the website is violating some security measures that Firefox obeys. There may also be something wrong with the Google docs animation that shows as about:blank because of this. Load denied by X-Frame-Options: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050 does not permit cross-origin framing.

If I check the page source then I also see some DIV containers that are deeply nested. Firefox might not display the content correctly in such a case.

So the website would have to look into these errors and warnings.

The editing tool -- a Google service? something uploaded by another program? -- generated horrendous HTML code. Firefox doesn't like it, and there's no workaround for showing content that is too deeply nested in Firefox.
