In IE/Netscape 4, the site has menus at the top of the page which allow yu to navigate around the site. These menus are not display in any version of mozilla. I have tried changing my user-agent string, to mimic IE6/5 and Netscape 4 but to no avail. Not sure what the site is doing wrong?
On 9th June 2002 I sent this to firstname.lastname@example.org (which is the recommended address for information and website suggestions Hi, As a user of the Mozilla web browser and a regular reader of Open Diary I'm a bit disappointed that one of the sites I view so regularly doesn't work completely in the new, fully standard compliant Mozilla. Although I can navigate around the site, none of the pull-down menus which are visible in Netscape 4 and IE 6 are shown in Mozilla. Since Mozilla has just been officially released (see http://www.mozilla.org) and Netscape 7 (now in beta testing) is based on it, I suspect that the number of users unable to see the menus properly is going to grow rapidly. Do you have any plans to fix this? I know I certainly would be more inclined to ship my diary from Free Open Diary to Open Diary if this were the case. If you want more information on fixes for NS7 (and Mozilla) maybe you could try: http://devedge.netscape.com/evangelism/ or: http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/ (I've filed a "bug report" into the 'incompatible website' section of Bugzila - the Mozilla problem database: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=149019 and will post your reply there so hopefully you shouldn't get too bombarded with people asking you the same question). Thanks in advance for any info, Jon Levell

Contact addresses are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org Site uses http://www.opendiary.com/navcond.js (2001 version of BrainJar dhtmllib) which does not support DOM and should be updated to a more recent version. If your userAgent contains Netscape, Gecko, or Opera (possibly others as well), OpenDiary serves different HTML that does not include the dynamic menu.
