firefox is unable to load Mega?

ok, this is my problem. i want to load some files to the Mega filesystem (mega.co.nz) but the page doesn't load (Timeout error), sometimes it loads but when i want to upload files, a pop-up appears telling me that my web browser is outdated, and i should try using chrome, ok, i have installed chrome, and the upload works perfectly, but i dislike chrome because some of it functions, there is any way to load files to Mega using firefox?

Re: firefox is unable to load Mega?

I have the same problem - Firefox 18.0.1 - Windows 7 pro. I try https://mega.co.nz/ , and it loads most of the page (I can see the source) but it never renders the page - just a white screen with a grey horizontal (progress?) bar. No error messages, I tried it in "safe" mode, cleared my cache, - nothing. At the bottom bar it says "transferring data from mega.co.nz ..."

Chrome loads the page fine, but I don't like chrome.

Re: firefox is unable to load Mega?

Can you post it to a site that doesn't make me take a marketing survey to download the file? I'm not giving spammers my email address.


EDIT* Since it seems like I can't delete this post, it was in answer to some "top 10 contributor" who posted a link to a .pdf file on a site that wants you to take a survey and give your email address to download a file! He then deleted the post.

The same problem. Use Firefox 18.0.1

https://mega.co.nz/#blog_1 Mozilla Firefox 18: Carefully avoids providing any API that would allow writing files from JavaScript.

I have the same problem as chiaroscuro has (just a white screen with a grey horizontal (progress?) bar)

Do not know if that is the reason, but it is said Mega Site creators have made the site mostly compatible with google chrome...

There is a firefox mega plugin available, take a look Smiley Happy

Thx for the reply SaphirJD.

There idd is a problem it seems with uploading and downloading files from Mega with Firefox, but the problem stated here is that the site just won't open. I have the plugin but the plugin won't work if the site does not even open Smiley Happy

Re: firefox is unable to load Mega?

I'm getting a similar issue, but in the last day or two an error (of some sort) has started appearing when I try to access mega.co.nz.

"Your browser does not allow data to be written. Please make sure you use default browser settings."

Clicking OK on that comes up with a big "Download Chrome!" prompt so yeah no.

Firefox 18.0, tried disabling addons like greasemonkey and adblock, and enabled flash and java, no difference.

I do like to mess around in about:config but not without valid reasons, so I have no idea which (if any) of the things I've changed cause this. It's happening on my work laptop and home desktop so it's not something random, it's some intentional change it's not liking.

Is it possible that it's due to disabling or blocking flash supercookies?

edit: Just tried allowing sites to store data in Flash but no change.

SebastianA, I just retried it, and got the same message as you described. Previously I got the blank screen (see above). Maybe Mega has added an error msg. for the problem I was having before? Can anyone here access the site with FF 18.0.2?

I'd switch to Chrome in a minute, if their handling of bookmarks wasn't so wonky.
