"Home page" button not working
« on: November 07, 2017, 11:46:37 AM »
Using Firefox on Win 7 , when I click on the "Home page" button the current page remains in place, my home page is about:blank, when I select a new site bookmark that works fine except if I select about:blank.  If I open the the customise menu and select New window, I do get a blank page.

I think it may be due to the recent Firefox update, is this likely or is it some other cause?

Seeing as Old Crow has reported an issue with Firefox maybe it's something they have changed :hmmm: :hmmm:
Can log in to main page but cannot access any parts/forums using Firefox, my main browser (this via Chrome)
since midnight get error message saying some sort of security issue related to certificate???
I've had this sometimes with other sites where the certificate has not been updated - hence the cutoff at certain date/ time?
Are you aware of this issue?

I'm sure Admin will find the truth which, according to Mulder & Scully, is out there.

I'm using Firefox right now with no issues.  Is it just that button?

Having clicked home page button, the address area clears and if I try to access the page which is still showing nothing happens, e.g. forum page still showing but clicking on anything like opening a topic doesn't work, so the home button has done half it's job so to speak, forum is in effect closed but blank page is not being shown.

From Firefox 57 there are some major changes. I don't understand fully what they are but I know that my favorite add-on (Super Start) will not work with it so I'm sticking to update 56. The problems you have could be related to this change.

Stopped using "new window" that resulted in a build up of previous windowson the task bar, so now I open a new tab then close the old tab, or just open next bookmark.
