Tech issues

A few readers are saying they can't see the comments on "The lords do battle" post. Can you let me know what browser and OS you are using. It's fine for me in FF22 and IE10 (win)

Win 8 64 bit and Chrome or ie10 fine.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:08 PM | Unregistered CommenterIan

Doesn't work in Vista 64/IE 9 (tried 64 and 32 bit)

But works in Safari 3.1.1 - probably not current version.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:09 PM | Unregistered Commentergraphicconception

Everything seems working properly in Firefox 22.0 and Opera 12.16 on Ubuntu 12.04.

Can't say the same for the repeated links to "Silverlight" though.

I can't see them in Win 7 and IE 8

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:11 PM | Unregistered Commenterdcardno

... but they show up fine on Win XP and FF 22.0

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:13 PM | Unregistered Commenterdcardno

I can't see the comments in internet Explorer 10.0.7

But it's all OK in Google Chrome version

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:14 PM | Unregistered CommenterJimmy Haigh

I can't see them in W7 Prof + IE10.0.9

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:17 PM | Unregistered CommenterCapell

With both FF 22 and IE 10, under Windows 7, comments work fine for me.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:34 PM | Unregistered CommenterSara Chan

I can't see them - not sure what the spec of my computer is; suffice to say I paid for it in guineas.

Windows 7 prof 32 bit works on safari 5.1.7

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:35 PM | Unregistered Commenterconfused

Works fine on Mac OS with Chrome and Safari (both fully Patched and up to date). However the Parliament's Silverlight does not work at all. Doesn't work off Parliament's web site either.

Comments work fine on Windows 7 with IE 10.0.9200.16635 as does Parliament's Silverlight webcasts.

I suspect problems with Windows and IE are resolved by twiddling settings in Menu: Tools/Internet Options ... what specifically what I don't know.

Opera 12.16 on Win 7 ok.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterBruce

Win 7 64 bit, IE9 64 bit, not visible

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:47 PM | Unregistered CommenterOld Mike

Fine using Firefox 22 on Ubuntu 13.04

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:49 PM | Unregistered CommenterNic

Fine on iPad safari. But can I re-echo the general disapproval of silverlight? It's a real pain as almost none of my devices can handle it.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:51 PM | Registered CommenterJonathan Jones

Problem exists on my Vista Home Premium 2007 with IE version 9.0.8112.16421 update version 9.0.18

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:53 PM | Registered CommenterPharos

Works fine. Windows 8.1 (preview) and IE 11.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:56 PM | Unregistered CommenterSpeed

Not working in Win 7 and IE 9.

I'm getting the various quoted correspondence and then the blue highlight box continues below Matt Ridley's sign-off for about 3 lines to the bottom of the screen.

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:58 PM | Unregistered CommenterIan Blanchard

OK with google chrome/windows xp

Jul 26, 2013 at 4:58 PM | Unregistered Commentermichael hart

On the same computer as above, using IE8, I can't see the comments on that thread (but these comments are visible).

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:04 PM | Unregistered Commentermichael hart

Not working with Windows 7 / IE8, but OK on Win7/Firefox 22.

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:12 PM | Registered CommenterHaroldW

Machine: Windows Vista 32-bit Service Pack 2.

Works OK in Firefox 22.0
Works OK in Chrome 28.0.1500.72
Fails in IE 9.0.8112.16421

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:25 PM | Unregistered CommenterTheSkyIsFalling

All fine with Win 7 HP 64bit and FF 22.0

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:28 PM | Registered CommenterGreen Sand

Opera via Mac OSX. Everything's fine.

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:28 PM | Unregistered CommenterJoe Public

Fine here on Windows XP in Opera 12.16, IE 8.0.6, Firefox 14.0.1 and Google Chrome 27.0.1453

Jul 26, 2013 at 5:45 PM | Unregistered CommenterGareth

This afternoon, I tried seveal times to open the comments but without success. However, just now (19:02 hrs CET), the comment section opened. I do not know why the position has rectified itself.

For information, I use Windows Vista Home Premium with IE9.

Jul 26, 2013 at 6:04 PM | Unregistered Commenterrichard verney

Fixed for me.


Jul 26, 2013 at 6:09 PM | Unregistered Commentergraphicconception

I think there may be a pattern here - it appears IE is cr*p.

Jul 26, 2013 at 6:21 PM | Unregistered Commentersteveta_uk

Fine on FF 22.0 and Win XP.

Jul 26, 2013 at 6:32 PM | Unregistered CommenterIan_UK

Is there a correlation between Bishop Hill Readers and not using a "conventional" Windows set-up?

Jul 26, 2013 at 6:54 PM | Unregistered CommenterMic

Fine on W7-64bit+Firefox 22.0

Jul 26, 2013 at 7:00 PM | Registered CommenterMike Jackson

Fine on Opera 12.15 and Win XP Pro SP3

Jul 26, 2013 at 7:02 PM | Unregistered CommenterDodgy Geezer

Windows XP and Opera here (works fine), also Yandex browser, which has stolen Google's clothes in Russia, apparently. So Mic may be right. :-)

I have Linux (Lubuntu) too...

Jul 26, 2013 at 7:03 PM | Unregistered CommenterJames P

Working now on Win7/IE8. Thanks!

Jul 26, 2013 at 7:27 PM | Registered CommenterHaroldW

In IE10 x64 10.0.9200.16635, if you use the developer tools to validate the CSS there are 38 errors and 307 warnings for the relevant page.

Whether any one of the errors is sufficient to cause the page to fail to load in some browsers is beyond my expertise.

Jul 26, 2013 at 7:57 PM | Unregistered CommenterBilly Liar

Works for me now (Win-7 64-bit Professional SP 1 and IE 9.0.8112.16421).

Jul 26, 2013 at 8:05 PM | Registered Commenterallchangenow

Seems fixed now for me.

Jul 26, 2013 at 9:14 PM | Registered CommenterPharos

Forget about Windows.

Switch to UBUNTU ::
You will have up-to-date versions from FF as well.
Day by day, if you want.

Slightly O/T, but is it true that Silverlight (which is a dog) is the default medium of the Parliamentary broadcast channel? I read recently that MicroSatan is withdrawing support for it, deeming it to be an increasingly obsolete minority use program.

I can make it work on my setup (Vista + FF22) but it is slow, jerky and chews up a massive amount of bandwidth. Watching the Bish's appearance put me over my download limit for the first time ever. If there is any way to convert these recordings into something friendlier, it would be much appreciated.

I spent a couple of hours fussing with Novell "moonlight", a Linux workalike, in both Chromium and Chrome on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine without success. the window would come up and the various toggles, but no content.
