    Hey guys, I'm having a bit of trouble with the board. I'm using Firefox 1.0.4 and I'm seeing just regular text instead of these buttons. I'm sure I probably fudged something in Firefox, but I can't figure out how to fix it.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Alrightly, looks like it's working again. The buttons must have gone 404 on me.

    Sorry guys!

    Yeah, I have found that if you are just doing easy browsing Firefox is ok, but when it comes to interactive content pages, Firefox sucks. I tried for a month to use it and it just kept forcing me back to IE.

    Hmm, it was never doing it before, but now it just started again. I'm assuming this is the alt text playing it's role.

    Have you done the speed tweaks where you enable pipelining and increase the maximum simultaneous connecters per server?

    I've found that if you get too carried away with that, you can briefly overwhelm a server, and end up with some of your page/image requests being ignored.
