I've been having problems using the site on Firefox 2.0.0.1, on Mac OS10.3.9 and 10.4.9.

When I use the site, the header appears as a blank blue, and I am unable to post. Has anyone else had similar difficulties?

Safari 2.0.4 is working fine.

No issues here either (Firefox 2.0.0.4 on a PC). Not sure what to tell you, Nat. Sorry.

Looks OK to me in both Firefox 2.0.0.1 and Safari 2.0.4 under OS X Tiger.

And now it's working fine on the 10.3.9 laptop. I'll post with more specifics if goes wonky again...

Unless the problem was happening consistently (i.e. daily), I would guess it was a momentary serving error for that particular graphic file. IPB probably loads 20-50 files per page load, and load errors are bound to happen on a shared server (I don't think CartoTalk is on a dedicated server). Just my geeky two cents :)

No, the problem happened over 3-4 days, on both my home and work computers, so I figured it was something wrong with the site. Well, never mind; it's working again now. Thanks all.

OK, it happened again, after a failed login. See attached screen shot for how the site looked on Firefox. It still looks that way. Based on past expereince, it will take a system restart to get Firefox Cartotalk working right again.

Once again, Safari was fine, but Firefox 2.0.0.1 on OS10.4.9 on a G5 Intel did not.

One effect of the loss of images is, I couldn't use the raster security code to reset my password, so I had to bug Nick... sorry Nick!

It looks as if no images at all are showing up. And this only happens on CartoTalk? Hopefully the coming redesign will fix whatever bug is causing this.

There is a checkbox in Firefox preferences under the Content tab, "Load images automatically", with an "Exceptions..." button, which calls up a list of domains where images do not load automatically. No idea why Firefox/CartoTalk toggled it, but undoing that fixes the problem.

Not sure if this is Firefox related... but why can't I see the members map anymore? It says it's loading data from google, but ultimately blank. I have allowed both Google and Cartotalk for auto-display of images.

I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.8 on Mac OS X 10.4.10

I'm on a pc with IE (i before e, except after c?) and the members map page shows blank for me. Doesn't say anything about loading from google.
