Problem rendering LQ in Firefox 3.6.10 on Win7 64-bit


I just had Firefox update itself to 3.6.10 on Win7 64-bit and now LQ.org doesn't render properly. Parts of the "Main Menu" on the right now appear below the bottom bar that has "Contact Us", "Advertising Info", etc. specifically, the portions below the bar are the "My LQ", "Write for LQ", "Main Menu" (the part with the "Zero Reply Threads"), and "Syndicate".

Yes, I'm getting it here too. It's quite annoying.

The only thing I've updated since my last visit about 7 hours ago is my noscript extension. I wonder if that could have something to do with it?

Edit: I just tried disabling noscript, but nothing changed. Everything below the first "Main Menu" division has been pushed to the bottom. And for the record my browser is Iceweasel 3.6.4.

Thanks for the bug report. This was actually an issue on our end and has been corrected.

All's working now here, too. Thank you.

Maybe I spoke too soon. I'm not sure if it's related, but now the little increase and decrease size buttons above the text boxes appear to be broken for me.

Edit: D'oh. False alarm. I hadn't reenabled LQ in noscript. Sorry.

I'm not exactly sure which "little increase and decrease size buttons above the text boxes" you're referring to.

Every text reply area has two small arrow icons at the upper right that increase or decrease the size of the reply box. I often use them when I need to compose a long post.

But the mistake was all mine. They still work, so there's nothing to worry about.

Here's some advice if you use Firefox: Do *NOT* use WinDoze! That's the reason for your problem right there.

Actually, Windows has absolutely nothing to do with it. As I said, the issue was on our end (and impacted all LQ members).

I think it would be better for the community here at LQ if you would refrain from posting things that are not constructive. If I were new to the community coming from Windows, I'm not sure I'd appreciate Windows bashing. I've been guilty of this in the past myself, but have come to realize that it doesn't provide any sort of positive contribution to the community - it just comes off as elitist.

I use Debian at home, but at work I'm stuck with Win7 due to our company's CAD package. And I'd much rather use Firefox or Chrome on Windows than what comes with it (though I must say that IE8 & IE9 beta are both huge improvements).
