Okay, me and several other people have a bit of a problem with the "new and improved" oekaki board. That is? You guessed it- we use Firefox. (Explorer just didn't like me- kept killing my oekakis.) Well... If any of you have Firefox that get on the oekaki, go take a look, and you'll see what I mean- it DESTROYS the format utterly and makes the whole thing an eyesore! I don't know about everyone else, but I'm about ready to boycott the board, it hurts my eyes so bad.

Doc, isn't there ANYTHING you or Kia or Ryouga can do to make the new oekaki board a bit more Firefox-friendly? Please? Pretty please? I actually don't think I'll be drawing there anymore otherwise. (Though I can't help but comment.)

I'm not sure what you mean, I'm not having problems with it on my version of Firefox... @_@

You might need to post a screenshot to show me what you're talking about. Guuuuuh.

That's very *strange*. o_o

What version of firefox? Mine is up to date: 1.5.0.4

...then again, it might not be fully loading if it appears to be that crazy wonky. >_<

It's weird that you'd get problems with Firefox, since I've created the updated layout with that browser! I merely used Internet Explorer to make sure that everything was fine under it. In fact, if you have problems with IOekaki, you should have some with IOBoard as well: they're both using about the same amount of XHTML and CSS now!

Your display gives me the feeling that your browser didn't fetch the CSS file, which holds the layout and display information. Can you try clearing your browser's cache, then restart it? Alternatively, go to any page on the oekaki board, then, with Firefox, press Ctrl-F5. That will do a full reload from the server.

(And geez, people start talking about boycott already after an update not meant to cause any problems. I'm willing to help, but give me a chance to do so!)

EDIT: I just noticed: your version of Firefox is outdated, since you have the red icon at the top right announcing that a new version is available. How about updating your software, too?

Back up your bookmarks and settings beforehand-when I updated Firefox it wiped all of that. And it doesn't seem to want to allow you to select search engines to use in the search bar near the top of the screen. Be warned-it's what made me switch to Opera, it was so annoying.

Yes, the outdated version might have some relevance in the problem. But it does look like it hasn't loaded one component.

Never had my bookmarks wiped out whenever I updated firefox.

Go figure. They only get wiped out when I have a really bad computer crash that makes the computer have to check both HD's. =P (fortunately, that's rare and only happened at the time when I was having video card/processor problem.)

Yes, a Firefox update made all the difference. Maybe I should draw an oekaki to celebrate. =P Thanks for the suggestion, you guys. I'm not very computer or internet savvy, so I need all the help I can get.

Sometimes I run into problems like that and I'm like, "Oh jeez, I have to update now..." x_x
