Messageboard >next and >>last buttons broken in Firefox


Website Feedback


I think the next and last button on multipage message threads don't work when running firefox. I had thought they were always broken (try reading the "Wil Save" thread on the Dungeon board, it's got 7 or more pages). But I just tried from Internet Explorer and it worked.

Usually I was getting an error that the page was not found or some such. Today, from FireFox, I got a "you've back up too far" message instead.


Thanks for the heads up.

We're looking into it.

Currently using Firefox 3.0.1

I have noticed that when I use <backspace> the forum does not return me to the location I was at when browsing the forums. I get returned to the very top of messageboards. This is an inconvenience, because then you have to scroll down to the forum you were looking at.

This is not the behavior when using IE. When you use <backspace> in IE, you are returned to the location you were at while browsing.

If this could be fixed that would be great. Or if any firefix users have a work around, that would also be great.

Thanks.

Odd, I'm using Firefox 3.0.1 and the next and last buttons work for me.
Nor does hitting backspace take me to the top of the forums. Maybe there is something in the settings?

Elorebaen has resurrected a reallllly old thread. The next and last buttons have been working for some time now.

As for the backspace behavior, I don't know offhand if there's anything we can change in our HTML to make that happen. I'm open to suggestions.

I didn't think to check the date on the original post. I just read it, and tested to see if it was true (I click the number of page usually). On the backspace issue, I tested to see if it happens on my machine, using the same version of Firefox as Elorebaen and it works for me(as in taking back to the previous page visited). Its most likely something in his settings unless there are more people with the same problem.

I am using Firefox 3.01 with the same results as Elorebaen.

Since Firefox 3.0.1 just came out.. like friday (I think)... I'll wager it's a firefox bug and not a paizo.com issue.

Sorry about hijacking the old thread. Just wanted to keep the firefox stuff in one place.

The backspace behavior has been wonky since 2.0 for me. Just one of those odd things, I suppose. I did find a cool workaround.

The add-on called "IE Tab". It allows you to render any page as IE would render it. When using IE tab the backspace button works as it should.
