Is it just me or kotaku.com on ffox 9.0.1 is displayed wrong. Seems the side articles are loaded but not the middle, main article loads. Just noticed this now, cause haven't really been visiting kotaku.com that much...

Have tried reinstall after uninstall, ccleaner, reboot. Same thing. But tried on IE9 it displays properly.:banghead:

EDIT: Tried on a different machine with older ffox 9.0.1 install, same thing. Maybe connectivity problem but IDK why it works well on IE9 ... anyway thanks for your time. (Wanted to delete my post but cannot find the delete thing when clicking on the "EDIT" icon).

Cheers

It is Firefox's core that is doing this. To be blunt no browser perfect reproduces websites as there are so many different coding protocols, and at least 4 major web browser engines that interpret that information.

While Firefox's Gecko engine is simply reading some of the code on the site incorrectly, Kotaku as a major site should ensure their pages are being displayed on every browser correctly. This can be achieved with additional code at the top of a HTML page to properly identify the browser being used and changing the namespace standards to match.

This is strange though as Firefox 9.0.1 is suppose to have a 100/100 in the Acid3 test. I believe there is a plugin for Firefox that will allow you to display websites you choice like IE. It may not be the best solution, but may help you.

IE Tab is the extension I've always used. You can set certain sites to always open in IE Tab by default.

Checked in three different browsers (Firefox 9.0.1, Chrome 16.0.9, IE 9.0.8) and Kotaku all looks the same.


EDIT:

Firefox on the left, IE on the right.
