    Another Mozilla problem

    For some reason Javascript doesn't work in Navigator. Its enabled (Edit > preferences > advanced > scripts and plugins) but it doesn't work on any sites ive visited. Ive tried reinstalling but that makes no difference.

    Anyone know what could be happening?

    actually... in all seriousness... Mozilla is notorious for having problems running Javascript correctly... with my past experience in building websites... I've pretty much given up on trying to write scripts that will work in Mozilla/Netscape. It's pointless.

    Not really, I work with JavaScript some years, and today I can tell you that writing scripts cross-browser, it's a lot simpler than once.

    Mozilla, now, supports a lot of new features, this help use to build cross-browser scripts.

    Well, I haven't messed with it much over the past year or year and a half... but I'd hope they'd gotten better... according to face... apparently they haven't come around completely.

    Hmm, I don't know if he installed well the mozilla, what version, what site he can view.

    Hmm face, did you tried a simple script in JS to see if the browser works?

    Try something with alert:
    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript">
    var name;
    
    name = window.input("Whats your name?");
    window.alert("Hello, " + name);
    </script>
