Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

I have recently upgraded to Vista.  I am able to start PageBuilder OK when I am using Internet Explorer, and have noted that there is a Java folder within the Windows folder.  I do not have to install Java as I do when using Firefox. If I do install Java, PageBuilder will not work with IE!!  I have to uninstall it first.  

PageBuilder will not work with Firefox, even after I have installed Java.  The answer is to use IE rather than Firefox, but I prefer Firefox as my default search engine.  Can anyone please tell me how to overcome this problem.

It doesn't recognize my password and IE doesn't load the site.

Which version of Windows are you using.  If you are using Vista, can you confirm whether or not your Windows folder has a folder marked 'Java'.  Have you also uninstalled Java from 'Programs and Features'.

The test page is on Geocities. Too late to investigate.
no longer a valid site.  file a new bug if something similar occurs on some other page builder with modern versions of Firefox.
