A couple of things to try here... When you say "the current version of Firefox", which version do you mean? Firefox 3.0.x is equivalent to Camino 2.x; Firefox 2.x is equivalent to Camino 1.6.8. (Firefox 3.5.x and beyond are equivalent to some Camino version that doesn't yet exist, but will probably be either Camino 3.0 or Camino 2.5-ish.) If it works normally in either of those two Firefox versions... ...does spoofing your user-agent as (exactly) the equivalent version of Firefox fix the problem? This smells like a UA sniffing issue. cl
i mean 3.x, with 'x' being anything you want to put in there. how do i spoof my UA in Camino? i don't find any reference to it in the menus or prefs...
It's important to know whether you're referring to 3.0.x or 3.5.x, though. For spoofing a user-agent string, the best thing to use is http://pimpmycamino.com/parts/user-agent (though you could also do it manually via about:config if you were so inclined). cl
ah, k. well i'm talking about Firefox 3.5.2 (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2) and literally every sub-version of 3.0. it's worked fine in every version of Firefox i've ever used including 2.whatever. thanks - i'll try spoofing the UA and let you know what happens. after my girlfriend teaches me to make her killer curry, which she insists on doing RIGHT NOW.
Sounds like there's little likelihood of this being some sort of Gecko bug, then. That's good. Unfortunately, it also sounds likely to be another case of brain-dead browser sniffing :-\
alas...User Agent has not solved the problem. i chose both Safari 2.0.4 (Intel) and Firefox 2.0 (Intel) and the menu in question still doesn't work.
oh, and i quit and relaunched Camino after each change, in case that would affect anything. it didn't.
same story in 1.6.8 with the UA set to Firefox 2.0 (Mac OS X Intel), btw.
Could be bug 258445, but there's no way to tell without being able to access the site.
Sam can repro this, and at first look it does not appear like it's one of the missing methods from bug 258445. Sam's going to look more when he's not in a meeting, and he'll attach some HTML Complete for us if we don't get answers from his looking.

Sam, pinging you on this and hoping it doesn't get lost in your avalanche of vacation email.
Sam, any progress on this?
Does this still happen with Camino 2.1.2?
