# Commenting not working on FireFox

I am not sure what happened (perhaps an upgrade in FireFox) but the commenting system completely stopped working in FireFox.

The FireFox version is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

The things that don't work

• Cannot upvote comments. Hovering near the comment does not show the clickable upvote comment.

I am also unable to upvote/downvote answers/questions.

I haven't tried posting an answer yet, so don't know if that is not working too (my guess is it will work fine, as this looks like a Javascript issue).

Here is an error shown by the Javascript error console:

Error: vote is not defined
Source File: http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/5617/party-planning-problem
Line: 46


And this is a warning:

Warning: The 'charCode' property of a keyup event should not be used. The value is meaningless.

Line: 0


A refresh does not help.

I didn't try deleting the cached js files, yet.

Strangely enough, on a different computer (different OS version altogether) with the same firefox version, it works: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10

I suppose it is something local...

• Have you tried doing a shift-reload, which does some cache-clearing without having to dig around in the cache or clear it entirely? – Isaac Sep 28 '10 at 16:06
• I tried shift+reload. Does not seem to work. – Aryabhata Sep 28 '10 at 16:12
• @Moron: Can you load sstatic.net/js/question.js?v=e24dbefef57d ? – kennytm Sep 28 '10 at 16:41
• @Kenny: I will let you know in about 8-9 hours. I am away from that computer currently. – Aryabhata Sep 28 '10 at 16:54
• @Kenny: No, I can't load that page using the computer that is giving me problems: Content Encoding Error. "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression." – Aryabhata Sep 29 '10 at 1:35
• @Moron: Try clearing the cache. – kennytm Sep 29 '10 at 13:58
• @Kenny: Apparently I didn't have to! It works now. Perhaps if you will care to add your comment as an answer, then I can tick that. I suppose this is not just local to me, based on the upvotes to my comment about not being able to load it. – Aryabhata Sep 29 '10 at 14:15
