The configurator (a tool to option out and build a car found at, which redirects to does not load in Firefox 4 (I've tested this on the latest nightly on another system; the system on which I am writing this bug report is running the 20110217 nightly).

I have confirmed that the web site works with Chrome, and works with Firefox 3.6.13. I tried spoofing a Firefox 3.6.13 UA, no change in behaviour, so I suspect not a TE issue.

Reproducible: Always

Broken web site in 20110217 nightly (looks the same in 20110221)

Working web site in 3.6.13

Some other international Audi sites (that seem to use the same design and presumably similar/identical code as Canada) seem to be broken in the same way. See, e.g.: (UK) (France) (Germany)
(I didn't test those with a 3.6.13 UA, but I did test them in real 3.6, they seemed to load there)

U.S. site appears to use totally different code. Australia/Ireland/Luxembourg/Hong Kong are also fine and appear to share a similar (different from Canada/UK/France/Germany) design. Couldn't find a configurator on New Zealand. Belgium uses a Java-based tool. Austria has a different configurator tool too. My language skills are limited to English and French (though it's a safe bet that 'Konfigurator' on the German-language sites refers to the same thing), so I figured that that would be enough countries. :)

The site is not being loaded from Firefox 4 Beta 1

Gather from the changesets in those ranges and the errors shown in the error console that this is another case of 'script running in script mode when it really shouldn't be', so tech evang. 

However, going to nom for blocking/visibility, for someone else to make the call.

dupe of bug 631043
Sort of, yes.  It sounds like a lot more than just the .de version is affected...

This is now a product side tracking bug for bug 631043 - do we believe we can't ship without that Tech Evangelism bug resolved? That's the blocking decision, here.
Mike, do you want me to move this back out of evang?
I think we can ship without this resolved.  And really, I don't see what option we have here if they're feeding us drek.  I don't think we can, or should, special-case sites as able or unable to invoke strict mode.  And turning it off isn't an option, either, for spec compliance and for compatibility with other upcoming implementations that do support it.  I don't think anyone else has seriously discussed disabling strict mode.  I don't think we should either.

This also works fine for me in FF9.0.1. If there is still an issue that I missed, please reopen with additional info.
