      The Central not loading correctly on Firefox?

      So I've recently made the switch from Google to Firefox and I've run into a problem when trying to go on the website there. I tried looking back at other threads to see if anyone else had the same problem and tried solutions for similar problems but it's still messed up. I've cleared my cookies and cache fully and multiple times, I've allowed popups, I've disabled all my extensions, and I've disabled all of the security features on the website. Yesterday I got it to work briefly, but I left the website and when I came back it was loading wrong again. I'm not sure what to do and how to fix it since I am not going back to Chrome. Does anyone have a solution are some more things I can try?

      This is what it's loading like

      This is an issue with Firefox that started a little over a year ago. I spend months trying to resolve it with them before I found out exactly what was happening.

      Firefox decided to "protect" the users by restricting the ability of the browser to download from sites THEY determine are unsafe (Apparently they do not like ads that show up on the site Central uses). They give a circular set of ways that do not allow you to make a site an exception so it loads, but those instructions do absolutely nothing.

      My solution was to:

      Use Firefox for my regular internet work, but when it comes to anything on the Central websites/pages I switch to Google Chrome (Although I REALLY do not trust anything by Google).

      So when I am playing W101, I have both versions of the browsers running so on Firefox I can monitor my emails etc., but I keep Central open on Chrome to keep and eye on posts or use the WIKI.

      I hope this will help you a little, it's not a great solution but it does work well once you get used to managing 2 different browser systems.

      Not currently at a desktop, but here was a simple solution for a similar problem last year:

      Yep, problem is that as the system is now, the padlock won't unlock anymore for everyone. As I mentioned, I spent months with Firefox team trying to resolve it and followed what is in that link over and over with no success.

      During that time in the Firefox help chat board, the vast majority of people had the exact same problem as I had.

      Actually, now that I'm fiddling with it again, HTTPS-Only Mode seems to make it go back to normal. So I have no idea what Firefox is up to with its settings.

      Of course my number one recommendation would be to not use Firefox, but, hey, that's just me.

      Now you see what I have been saying. As far as a general browser, Firefox is good; but in this situation it is horrible with little or no solutions. That's why if you want to keep using Firefox, then learn to use 2 browsers at once with Chrome set aside for Central sites.

      Re: The Central not loading correctly on Firefox?

      It's been a long time since I've been on 'cause I've had the same problem and I won't use Chrome, but just for the heck of it I tried and I have managed to "solve" the problem--at least, Central now loads properly for me at the cost (I think) of reduced security. If you want to see if what I did will work for you, type https:// in your address before the www.wizard101central.com hit return. Unfortunately, for me this only worked on a page by page basis--you had to do this for EACH page on Central you visited. Not good. Now I've updated my Firefox exceptions and https only mode settings and good ol' Central is back for me. YAY! But I do believe that now my connection is not "secure" so you may want not to do this even if it does work for you. Good luck and enjoy Chrome!

      Yep, been there and done that. It drove me crazy to keep having to do it every time I looked for updates/new posts. I'm not a fan of Chrome by any means or measure, which is why I ONLY use it to access Central.

      I see I didn't make my post clear. I no longer have any issue with Central displaying. I now use Firefox and Central appears normally from the get go with no action necessary on my part, no matter how many pages I access. Problem fixed. It's like it used to be before Firefox updated and "broke" Central.

      I know, you were clear; perhaps I wasn't clear. I tried all of that before a year ago and when again repeatedly a week ago. As far as my own experience and attempts that have been numerous, it still does not work, nope, nothing nada.

      If it works for you, that is great and I feel happy to you and others it does work for BUT there are others, like myself, that it simply does not work for.

      When I said "broke Central" that was a figure of speech not an attempt at a rude commentary so that quote was not needed.

      I myself am not complaining, I am beyond that. This thread was started by another person who has/had the same problem and I was simply responding with my own history in the matter including all the failed attempts and lack of assistance from Firefox.

      I have said it numerous times, I really like Firefox but as far as being able to access Central with it, it just doesn't work so I use 2 browsers: Firefox for 95% of my online work and Chrome for when I am on Central. As simple as that.

      I have told others of my experience in hopes they find a solution for themselves and unless anyone has a specific question to me, I am done with this matter.
