Blogging Quirks November 3, 2006Posted by WishBoNe in Random Thoughts, Technology and Gadgets.
Apparently using WordPress to blog means that I’ve to use Firefox. It seems to be less of a hassle by using it. IE 6 just display the rich text editor more weirdly. It tries to navigate away from the page. Firefox is able to handle it.
Now I know why there’s a strong group of supporters for Firefox. It is good. Currently, it’s version 2 and is able to hold on its own against IE 6. There’s no validation for using genuine OS for Windows as opposed to IE 7 during installation. I’m going to upgrade my Firefox at home.
Another quirk that I notice is that I’m not able to use a shoutbox or quick chat that I recently created here. WordPress seems to be protecting itself from scripts. Hopefully someone will come up with an alternative so that I can put up one here.
One annoyance is that whenever I pressed on Backspace while using it will go back 2 characters sometimes. Now, this is not right, I pressed once, not twice ❗
Side note: Firefox 2 has a spell check is seems. Nice add on 😉
