problem using Tesco site with Firefox

  Halmer 14:29 15 Nov 2008

When I click here and try to enlarge the image, for some reason, a dialogue box opens up asking me which program to use rather than just enlargening the image.

Would someone mind testing it for me please to see if it is a Tesco thing and not my PC.

Thanks in advance.

It's a common problem with this site see click here I found the answer was to uninstall the word in works module.

I have the same problem with Firefox but not with Opera. It would seem that the Tesco site is not fully compatible with Firefox.

No problem here with Tesco on Firefox (latest edition 3.0.4) or with Chrome.

Ignore my previous thread about Word in Works Suite addon. This was to cure another prob! Sorry.

sporadic because I've viewed the enlarged TV today via FF and it worked for some reason.

It looks like it works first time (with a cleared cache) and then the second time brings up the box.

I have Adblock. Wonder if it's that?

To be honest I've just viewed it a number of times without problem then went to another TV and that one failed so it's got me stumped.

Hi Guys
I to have problems with Tesco site, this started when purely by co-incidence Tesco re-designed their site and Firefox moved to ver 3.0.0.
When I contacted Mozilla via Bugzilla I was informed they were working on this problem; finally they came up with a 'fix'?? the trouble lay within Java there was some form of incompatibility which would be solved when release 10 came out. This has not fixed the issue.
I use I/E v7 and have no problem using the Tesco site, in addition I have downloaded IEPro7 this allows me to switch rendering engines by a click of the mouse. There does not at present to be a fix for this or until Tesco and Mozilla get their heads together.

Hi Guys
Sorry I forgot to state that you can open the Tesco site its only when you start browsing the pages that the 'Dialogue Boxes' open up instead of the page.
I have contacted Tesco webmaster with the 'thoughts' that Mozilla gave me, they invited Tesco to get in touch with them...result...zilch !!
Draw your only conclusions but surely a major company like this should listen to problems their on-line customers have.
