blogger & firefox at war

I can see my own (and other) blogs just fine in Safari or Chrome but there is something going on with Blogger and Firefox. The browser has stopped working with Blogger - or Blogger has changed something that doesn't work with Firefox. I have had to abandon Firefox when I'm blogging.

A minor problem compared with coming home yet again to NO INTERNET and NO PHONE.  Plus, the upstairs toilet tank and leaked downstairs into my sewing room, ruining many things that were in that corner and leaving a mildewy smell in the carpet.  DId my husband notice?  Did he call the plumber? 
I believe the universe is trying to warn me off going away, ever again.

Nonetheless, this was a worth-it trip. San Jose's weather was perfect.  Linda (from Sunny St. Petersburg) Dawson, Laura Beehler, Leslie Jenison and I spent quite a bit of time at one particular outdoor café and we did a fair amount of wandering around, taking inspiration photos. Here are a couple of mine.



And then there were the to-die-for ceramic pieces of public art by Jun Kaneko, whose work I posted about last year when I saw such a wonderful exhibition at the Morikami Museum in Florida. And he prints textiles, too!



So, back to real life and the humid New Jersey weather.  But soon enough we will be complaining about the cold, so I will enjoy the heat while I can.

Are you working on a Mac? I have no trouble with the 12 X 12 blog and Firefox. At least the last time I posted.

No problems here with Firefox and blogger. I read all the blogs with Firefox and posted to my blog a few days ago, without a hitch, with Firefox. I was thinking the same thing, that maybe you're on a Mac? Or, is your Firefox updated?

Definitely something weird going on at your house regarding Blogger and Firefox. I am using both here with no problems.

Glad you are back home in one piece but too bad about the problems. Always something right?

We have had a sincere Fall heat wave in CA which I understand is just about to break. It was unusually hot for your visit:)

I was having problems with Firefox as well - kept getting Error 503s. But that's been sorted and now I'm able to blog and comment. you might want to try again. Love the palm tree trunks - or at least that's what I'm guessing they are.

Hi Rayna,

Posting again, due to an error.
The blogger problem was obviously temporary. I noticed that, too. -- The potter is a genius! Just gorgeous. I remember this artist, you showed some vases sooner. Great to see more!

Hate to say it too but I use blogger and firefox and have no issues. Have you updated to the latest version of firefox? Maybe that would help...

Rayna said...

Yep,have the latest version of Firefox. Can't figure it out.
