About web browser question


Hi all,

The DNS Control Board page of Godaddy doesn't display correctly on Firefox and Google Chrome. The DNS Control Board page of Godaddy doesn't display correctly on Firefox and Google Chrome. But it works without problem on Web browser of Debian and Internet Explorer of MSWindows server. Any suggestion?

I have checked Godaddy support page
http://support.godaddy.com/godaddy/p...hrome-browser/

Folks there also suffered similar problem without solution. However one folk there told that Chrome without extension running on MacBook worked fine.

I'm subscribing Deluxe Linux hosting plan. To buy a MacBook to do the job? Running Web browser on Debian or MS Internet Explorer on MSWindows to work on Godaddy? This is NOT the first time for me encounting problem on Godaddy website. I have been suffering similar problem, Godaddy website not displaying correctly on Firefox, for more than 2 months.

Has any folk here tried Hostgator
http://www.hostgator.com/
?

Do their website have problem on major browsers, Firefox/Chrome etc? Thanks

B.R.

I'd contact godaddy support and ask them to fix it or if they know a solution.
Anyway, there's nothing stopping you for using e.g Chrome or Chromium for these pages. I would NOT buy a Macbook for this reason alone either

...or try Opera? It allows you to set per-site masking / identifying as msie or ff for problematic ones.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

Godaddy support already knew the problem on running Firefox to browse their website. They suggest me changing another OS. But their website still not work correctly on Firefox running on CentOS 6. I checked it previously.

Fortunately I have 2 virtualbox PCs here. I can switch OS easily. But it is NOT convenient each time checking Godaddy website on all browsers.

You can even run internet explorer in wine
If you have wine and winetricks installed:
Code:
$ winetricks ie9
will install Internet Explorer 9.

Then you could probably create a link or a shortcut to "wine /path/to/iexplore.exe http://address.to.godaddy"

Heck, you can even use Python and GTK to create a 1-site browser window for godaddys site alone. Probably a bit overkill though. I'd just see what browser does work and install that for this purpose until the site either gets fixed or a newer Firefox renders it correctly..
