I am trying to access this web page www.seek.com.au. I never had any problem with it.


Recently, I had to reformat 1 of my notebooks. After which, I cannot access the above web page using Firefox (I have tried version 3.5 and 3.0). However, I can if I use IE.

Using my other old notebook, I did not have any problems with this web page using Firefox or IE.

I simply can't work out why it will not work on Firefox on my re-formatted notebook.

Please advise. Thanks.

I know what went wrong.

WIith the formatted Notebook, it was using an old version of Java.
I downloaded the latest version of Java and its working fine. :thumbsup:)

Glad you got it figured out. Make sure to remove the old versions of Java as they are magnets for malware.
