Description

17 years ago
1 - use Mozilla 0.9.9 or later
2 - visit http://fr.weather.yahoo.com
3 - see that the page does not load completely : Only the top part is displayed.
The "notre sponsor" grey box is empty, and takes the ful page width.

Expected results : like with IE5+, with a vertical bar on the left ("notre
sponsor", "My Meteo") and the main content : "Recherche", "Naviguez pour
selectionner une ville", "Depeches d'actualité"). ("Notre Sponsor", in IE5, is a
box containing an ad, located on the left hand side of the page)

Feedback form available on bottom of page: "commentaires et critique")
http://add.yahoo.com/fast/help/fr/weather/cgi_feedback

Sending short in french note asking for support.
Use of deprecated NS4 javascript in the inline script :

function Redirect()
{

...

//IE
if (document.all)

...

//Netscape
else if (document.layers)
{
...

Same problem in the javascript file the page links to :

If you save the page using IE, and then comment out the <script
language="JavaScript" src=http://java.europe.yahoo.com/fr/js/js2.js> in the
page, you will be able to see the page in mozilla.
If you save the page using mozilla, and comment out the script, you will
see the page, but the page is not exactle the same : the whole "météo" cell has
gone, which is ... strange :)
investigating...

following answser from fr-weather@yahoo-inc.com :

"Bonjour,

Le problème que vous évoquez a été remonté à notre ingé Météo. Merci 
pour votre attention et votre soin à décrire précisement le problème.

The site displays fine now, should be marked as Fixed

mmm... The site does load now but :
with IE, there's a "Météo" tab on the left.
with moz , no "Météo" tab...
