Default Can't access control panel through Firefox

When I log in to the control panel in Firefox, it hangs shortly after logging in. Sometime as soon as I log in, sometimes I can get as far as adding a new client, and then it hangs, to the extent that I have to force quit the application.

I reinstalled ISPConfig to see if that helped, to no avail.

I then tried accessing it through IE (running Crossover Office) and it works fine. Anyone else have this problem?

There are no entries added to /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/ispconfig.log when up to the point Firefox hangs.

I also don't have the startup script /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server - I'm guessing ISPConfig should have created this.

Running Ubuntu 5.1, Apache 2, PHP 5.1 (from people.debian.org/~dexter), MySQL4.1 - all other apps are as per the perfect install guide for Ubuntu 5.04.

Thanks in advance,
Ben

I just tried using Mozilla 1.7.12, and it seems to work fine in this browser.

If it helps, here are the full browser user_agent values:

Mozilla 1.7.12: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051013 Debian/1.7.12-1ubuntu1

Firefox 1.0.7: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051010 Firefox/1.0.7 (Ubuntu package 1.0.7)

Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

To the letter :-)

As I say - the system works in Mozilla and IE, just not in Firefox. Tis very strange.

Oops - just noticed you had 5.10 in the URL - that one wasn't there (or linked to from the ISPConfig docs page at least) when I looked.

I'll take a look and see what the differences are.

Thanks

Well I looked at the differences (very few) and reinstalled - still no Firefox support. There are still no errors in the log files. I'm guessing this is a firefox bug, although how that could be, I don't know...

Thanks for the help though

Here's an interesting developement. My previous posts are for a ubuntu5.1 install. I've now also installed ISPConfig on a VPS running Debian testing, and firefox works fine with that. I'll double check when I get to work tomorrow to see if it's just firefox on my work machine that has a problem.

Default Browser incompatibility

Yes we are having the same problem. On Internet explorer 6 ISPCOnfig works fine. On my Linux workstation with Mozilla 1.7.12, I have to refresh manually very often (while changing from ISP Management to DNS Management for example) and hav to logout and login if I add a new site or new user to be able to see it on the tree menu.

Please check your security settings in Firefox. Javascript and all kinds of header and http redirects must be enabled for ISPConfig.
