Nightly won't load BBC/news in Modern, why not?

more options

This problem only started in the last week. BBC News loads OK on the Desktop but if you switch to Windows 8 Touch it tries to load but sticks at about 75percent. I've tried reinstalling Nightly but that makes no difference. Is anyone else having the problem? Is there a solution?

Sorry I wasn't able to reproduce this problem. I switched to "Windows 8 Touch" UI in Nightly and then entered http://www.bbc.co.uk/ in the address bar. The page loaded correctly. Is this the same page you are loading?

No, not quite. You can get to the News page from the tab at the top of that page or directly from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/

I've just downloaded Nightly onto my Dell desktop machine where I normally use Firefox in desktop mode. Nightly gives exactly the same problem with the news pages on this machine as on my tablet.

On both, when in Windows 8 Touch mode the loading bar stops at about 75%

Thanks for the details! I'm seeing the same problem; it looks like a bug in the Windows 8 Touch app. I filed a bug report, which will be updated when we find and fix the problem:
