All of a sudden I can't see any pages other than the home page using Netscape 4.76. I get the ad banner, but nothing else on the page. Did something change in the last hour or so? Other sites work. I'm using Netscape 6 right now and IE worked ok.

Yeah, that "fixed" it. Now I don't even get the banner. Just a blank page.

Here's a hint. I tried highlighting the page, but got nothing. Then I looked at the page source and could see all the HTML.

I can see it when I open it in Netscape's Composer. I'll look at it there and see what I can see.

No, but I can save it from Composer and open it in Navigator and see it. Are you sure all tables are closed?

Same problem.

I'm glad this thread was already here. Please save me from having to use IE.

Thanks, GK. Thanks, X.

i used to be on a similar board (same board system) last year and i was there for 8-9 months and Netscape 4.7x did not work well with it, although actually i think the problem is with the banner ads.. why i don't know though but i do know that this site worked the same when i tried Netscape 4.7x which i use for everything else but for this forum i have to use IE if i want it to work properly all the time.

Same problem here, banner only. Tried 2 different computers on 2 different ISPs...

IE works fine though.

Had me worried, I got my HP GC and wanted to use a DVDTalk Affiliate link!!

Microsoft is getting cocky now that their appeal is looking good. They must have flipped the switch!

It's really strange. I just added some items to the menu today and it messed up netscape.

I keep going over my code and I can't see any open tables or anything

same here.

I know everyone is in love with IE. But.. this is literally hell for me. I can't stand it.. It just feels dirty.

The next version is 6 which I tested, and it worked. But 6 is not exactly an upgrade, it's a complete new engine.
