  • I cannot access www.petri.co.il using Windows Vista and Mozilla firefox

    On the 13/01/2009 (yesterday) I was able, without a problem. Running Windows Vista and using Mozilla firefox, to very quickly access this site. I did not change any settings in the browser options menu and the only reason that I am even using Firefox is because IE7 kept freezing and giving me dozens of third party cookies everytime that I went online. Is this to do with my version of Windows Vista?
    Maybe it is just the Firefox that needs binned or is not compatible with Vista. I do not know, but when I use IE7 (as I am now) I have no problems getting into Petri and any other sites.
    When I use Mozilla Firefox; I am able to access any of my favourite sites in milliseconds, except for www.petri.com and this was not the case yesterday?
    ....for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart.

    I am not aware of any problem of using Petri.co.il with Firefox. There aren't here any ActiveX components, so it shouldn't be any problem...
    As a matter of fact, I am using Firefox 3.0.5 to write this reply...

      I am also using Firefox 3.0.5 on Vista SP1.

      There are no compatibility issues with Firefox and Vista as far as I know, but "Firefox" and "Vista" are broad terms - *which* Firefox and Vista SP?

      Due to the symptoms you saw in IE, I would wonder if you have a virus or other malware.

        Hmmm I have noticed some delays when using firefox 2.x on my mac.
        With Safari on my mac I have no issues.

          The homepage of the site is by no means compliant with XHTML 1.0, either Transitional or Strict - 128 errors and 40 warnings, but Firefox is usually pretty tolerant of such problems, so I don't think that would cause either issue.

            Well With multiple refreshes and a lot of patience it will continue.
            However, I have made a little hack on my mac in the sysctl.conf to change the ack timeout.
            This because a diskstation I have (synology) uses appearently Nagle which i can't disable.

            I haven't tested it out to remove the line from the sysctl.conf so that's why I didn't made a notification about it.
            However strangly safari has no issues an firefox has. Maybe Firefox didn't like the change dough.
