Firefox rendering problem

Post by mathman » Sat Mar 07, 2015 4:25 am

Attached file is supposed to be .mht, but it could not be attached as such.

More serious problem (as .mht): When opening with IE rendering it opens properly. When opening with Firefox rendering, it goes completely haywire - opening an "infinite" number of blank tabs - shutting Avant is only way to stop. I have also opened with IE and Firefox (not Avant) and it works fine.


(I don't know why it is not downloaded.)

Which site is this? (URL?)

For future reference, when you want to attach an MHT file, you'll need to zip it first.

This is the current version of the file, which I also have. The one in question is an older version which illustrated the Latex results. The current version only describes them.

Firefox rendering problem - II

Attached is zip file of .mht file I was talking about previously. (I had to submit it as a new bug, since I wasn't able to attach with a comment previously). I don't know why it isn't downloaded. Message is confusing?

I saw on this site http://whatis.techtarget.com/fileformat ... -Microsoft you need an add-on to open .mht files in firefox. Maybe you can check if you use an add-on like "Mozilla Archive Format" in Firefox. If so, you need to install that in the Avant Firefox too.


add-on is here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addo ... ve-format/

Thanks - it works (Avant Firefox). My stand alone Firefox has something called UnMHT, which serves the same function.
