Browser issues

Yesterday, thanks to the dogged persistence of my English 086 students I discovered that at least one and perhaps all of my blogs are not displaying properly in Internet Explorer for Windows. The postings are displaying properly, but when it comes time to read comments users only see a blank comment box.

Fortunately, there is a quick solution: the blog displays properly in Firefox, a great browser that you can download for free at the UVM software page ( We’re looking into what might be causing this error on IE, but for the meantime, please download Firefox and start using it to access the blog.

You may well find you like it a lot better than IE anyhow. It is faster, and much less susceptible to spyware and adware. You can learn more about Firefox here.
