My dA message center doesn't work in Firefox since a few days ago. Anyone else have the same problem?

it's a glitch that seems to be present in every 64-bit build of firefox, including nightly, waterfox, pale moon, etc.

WHY it happens nobody has been able to determine, apparently there's an overflow error somewhere.
(said error also occurs in normal firefox, but it's still able to display the message center. really anyone who even tries to document this thing just ends up confused as all hell)

Ah. That explains it. :hmm: 

At least that means somebody must be working to fix it, if it isn't just me. ^^;

actually I just checked, and Pale Moon is completely free of the problem. I guess it's just an issue with the Australis-based FFs

presumably yes. although we're not even sure whether it's deviantart or firefox which is out of spec (I'd guess deviantart, but can't be sure)

Addendum:

Okay, it works... kinda, and only sometimes after flailing around with the "Notes" and "Message" tabs. Every time.

I haven't quite figured out the logic behind it yet.

So no quick "reloading the page" to check your messages, that flatout doesn't work. @_@

So yeargh, I still need to use Chrome and Firefox simultaneously, and that doesn't work so well on my computer right now. :roll:

I switched to Chrome at my sister's suggestion after Firefox did something... I dunno how to describe it.

Is the "something" related to deviantArt? :?

No, it was related to tabs and ads, mostly.

Okaaaaaaaaaaay, I just figured out a trick to get it working again.

Click on "Notes", wait for it to load all the notes, then click on the "notification"-tab. Voilá, now messages are back.

Weird. :O_o:

EDIT: Except that after a while, that stops working, so I have to open a new tab with the dA message center and repeat the "click on notes, then on messages tab" process again. Then it worked again. Weird. o____o

Or, to be more specific, I use "Waterfox", which is, like, the unofficial 64bit cousin of Firefox. But that's basically the same thing for this purpose, I guess.

My entire message center doesn't show up, except for the stuff on the left, and those little "Notification / Notes"-tabs at the top. Everything else's empty.

Already cleared old offline-website cache, didn't work.

Works just fine in Chrome, but having to switch browsers all the time is a hassle. :roll:
