It seems that the new version of the firefox browser, release number 45, is causing problems when browsing the site.

If you can't make pages load properly or firefox keeps seizing up, try switching to the old view or changing to a different browser. We're working to figure out exactly what the problem is and if there's a way we can sort it out.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox(as far as I know) and haven't had any problems.

I'm trying Internet explorer because it's already on my computer...haven't liked using it before but it seems to be managing the 'new view' just fine, where I still haven't been able to use the new view on firefox for three days now, just the old one.
I didn't realize firefox did anything more than the usual 'updates' lately but the last ones maybe did coincide with this problem.

If I delete the following line of code, the page loads and scrolls quickly.

<style type="text/css">@import url(http://cache-www.permies.com/templates/default/betaview/styles/style.css?1456607004686 );</style>

If I go into style.css and delete the following line of code, then my browser works properly.

.basic-section:before , .content:before{content:''; position:absolute; display:block; box-shadow: -52px 0px 50px -50px #000 inset, 52px 0px 50px -50px #000 inset; top:0; left:0; width:100%; height:100%; pointer-events: none;}

How did you know to do that?!! Is there a way I can easily find that section of code without having to read through all of it in that link?
and do I understand that there are two lines of code to remove? the one in your first post and another in the second and that they are both in the link?
I think this may be beyond me and I'll have to stick with IE for permies.

If you are having a problem with the site, please go to this page: http://supportdetails.com/ and take a screen shot and post it here. That usually helps whoever is fixing a website problem

Attached is what mine looks like. I am not having any problems in my version of firefox.

Yes Judith, I can see your screen shot.

BTW no problem seeing Old View on Chrome with poor internet. Same as usual.

I passed that on to the programming team and they've given me instructions to give you a whole basketful of apples. Hope you like them!

Burra and programming team: Wow! Thanks for the apples and pie.

that is good to know, Joseph.....I was worried that that was something everybody knew but me
I might feel brave and try to follow your instructions for what to delete later today......
Is it surprising that there are only three of us having this problem and we are all in dif. parts of the world?

I think there are probably many more - there are certainly a load over at coderanch.

It seems they have a fix and it will go out on the next deployment of the software. Which I guess will pretty soon, but I don't have a date.

Great! I'll wait for that then...I've found how to work around it so not really a big problem now...just so odd to have something that was so specific to permies.

Judith: It's not a fix that can be applied locally. I downloaded a copy of the broken carrot seed page -- and the associated scripts -- to my local computer, then modified them until I isolated the problem. Puzzles really work for me.

I get it now...earlier I thought you were explaining how we could fix it individually, my misunderstanding...and I'm relieved to say the least
Thanks for all that you did to point towards the fix!

OK, we have some kind of fix in place.

Is it working better for everyone?
