Hi Alistair,

I saw this behaviour yesterday on Firefox 20, so I don’t think it’s anything to do with the version. 

Firefox was working ok on the other Computer I tried

Today Firefox seems to work OK, so I think it was something to do with my computer,

Chrome exhibited the same symptoms as well.

I’m running windows 8,  and the screenshots below look as though this could also be a common feature.

Kindest regards, Thomas

I’m getting an odd reaction with new XOT content in FireFox 13.01. Here’s the page at http://vle.jisctechdis.ac.uk/xerte/play_190

Left is how it renders with FireFox (no content navigation so I can’t move beyond this page) and how it appears in IE on the right. 

Is FF a known issue? It looks like the page appears momentarily then gets overprinted by the white spaces.


FireFox accessibility settings are switched to default so it doesn’t seem to be anything daft I’m doing..
