I see a flash of page and then it is blank - how do I fix this
When I go to this page (firefox, linux) I see a flash of the page and then it is blank. How do I fix this to see the pages properly.

I have no problem viewing that page. It uses frames and has JavaScript embedded (almost every web page uses JavaScript nowadays, so that may not be a problem).

You can, when on the page, go to Tools, Web Developer and view the Error Console, Page Info or Page Source to see what may be the problem.

The Error Console, for example, reports Timestamp: 07/22/2012 10:08:43 AM Er...p.js Line: 130, which may or may not have anything to do with your problem (there's a lot of bad coding out there in the wild).

You may have JavaScript set too restrictively in your Preferences? You may want to review your Preferences -- or, set up a new user account, log in to it, start Firefox (don't mess with it) and see what you get, then mess with Preferences until you find one that causes the page to fail.

Make sure you're running the current version of Firefox. Review any add-ons you've installed for one that, potentially, could cause this problem (I have only NoScript and AdBlock Plus installed on my system and that page works for me).

Hope this helps some.

It was consistent yesterday even after a reboot I could see it and then blank.

Today I can see it no problem. ??? Thanks for the reply. If it happens again I'll try the tools.
