Re: Firefox 3 Beta 4 SUCKS.

I clicked on the link in ali's signature, حبيبى.com, and saw it went to some weird parking page... checked it in IE7... and it worked. Tried with a dozen or so of my parked pages and the same result!

Make sure your default character encoding is set to UTF.8. At least in Linux, it's View -> Character Encoding drop-down menus.

Re: Firefox 3 Beta 4 SUCKS.

Well my Namedrive stuff seems fine.

I am guessing that it is the site that is not properly encoded.

These domains are not parked at some Cowboy outfit are they?

Are you only testing one language? Check different languages.

Has nothing to do with the encoding. The page doesn't resolve the intended page. I uninstalled it and sent them an e-mail. Can't take a screenshot... won't be putting that crap back on my desktop!

Really really weird stuff.

Re: Firefox 3 Beta 4 SUCKS.

Personally I had always been a huge fan of the firefox mozilla early netscape browsers up to about netscape version 4x. After that things started to go downhill for me. Of course then Netscape became AOL which is just crap, and mozilla and the whole firefox thing changed.
The beauty of the browser though is that if you find a problem you can fix it yourself. I cant tell you how many time I had created a custom browser out of many earlier releases.
Regarding the beta release, I have not tried it yet. There are multiple reasons why you may not be able to resolve an url, perhaps encoding, perhaps it dosent use your host file properly, it could even be that you downloaded a file with some unseen corruption?
Its beta so you should expect problems.

Re: Firefox 3 Beta 4 SUCKS.

I did. No problem with resolving at all.

No problems with diplaying ND parking pages.

I tried the site the Arabic Site that was put here. It resolved but the display was weird. Site was probably designed for IE6 and you have lost backward compatibility. Get with at descent parking company.

Re: Firefox 3 Beta 4 SUCKS.

I'll post up an example a little later possibly. I'm not talking about encoding and what not... not THAT much of a noob! .

Will install on another computer.
