Is anyone else having trouble reading the Wall Street Journal using Firefox?

I can read it fine with IE6. I don't believe the problem is with my
firewall (ZoneAlarm) or with my Internet Connection Settings. I have
tried every possible configuration of accepting cookies. Of course I
have cleared my cache and started over with a clean instance of
Firefox. This is a problem that started a few weeks ago. I suspect WSJ
changed something in the way it handles cookies. Their customer
support is a dead letter box.

Please describe the exact problem you are having, as "trouble" is a
pretty generic term.

Thanks.

As I say, IE6 works fine, while (starting a few weeks ago) any attempt
to use Firebox to browse to www.wsj.com or http://online.wsj.com or
variants of those produces the following:

Do I understand correctly, that this is what is displayed in the browser
itself?

Those sites work fine, for me, btw.

Two things to try:

Check if the issue still exists in FF safe mode:

Start -> All Programs -> Mozilla Firefox -> Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)

or

Start - Run, and enter: firefox -safe-mode

If it still exists in safe mode, then try a new profile:

Start -> Run, and enter: firefox -p

Click on 'Create Profile' and follow the prompts.  When you have
completed the profile creation, highlight the new profile, in the list
of profiles, and click 'Start Firefox'.

To get back to your old profile, run the command again, but instead of
creating a profile, simply select your old profile and click the 'Start
Firefox' button.

Let us know your results.

Before doing all that, the user should try the usual first aid: 
clear the cache and delete cookies related to the site.  Restart 
the program and see if that solves it.  If not, THEN try all the 
rest.

The results I posted are displayed in my browser window. I should add
for completeness: coincident with the dump, the lower left hand
message bar reports "Transferring data from online.wsj.com..." and the
tab displays "Loading..." for as long as I care to leave them there.
Firefox behaves the same way when I run it in safe mode.
I created another new profile and was able to browse to http://online.wsj.com
which redirects to /public/us and could read that page. I was not
signed in, though, and when I attempted to sign in, I got the behavior
described above. I then opened IE6 and browsed to http://online/wsj.com
and was told "Error user name and password already in use". I waited a
few hours and tried again. IE6 permitted me to login, read paid
content, and logout. I then tried browsing with FF to that url and got
the usual screen dump.
I have done this enough times I have an inventory of screen dumps.
They vary in ways I don't understand, but are mostly concerned with
cookies. I append the last dump.
I notice that FF's representation of my cookies is different from the
contents of c:\Documents and Settings\LMHudson\Cookies. There are far
more cookies in that directory than FF believes I have, and they are
unaffected when I use FF to delete all cookies.
My next experiment, unless you have a better idea, is to delete all
cookies wherever I can find them.
Many thanks for your help.
Lawrence

I performed the following experiment: I deleted all private data
including cookies from within FF, then deleted the entire contents of
c:\documents and settings\lmhudson\cookies, except index.dat, which I
was unable to delete.
I then browsed to http://online.wsj.com. Again I could see the
redirection page /public/us but when I tried to login, I got the dump
which I append below. I then browsed using IE6 to the same url, logged
in successfully and was able to view paid content.

here is the dump displayed in the FF browser:

<snip screen dump>

The cookies that you see at the quoted location are, AFAIK, IE cookies,
they are not FF cookies.

FF keeps cookies in your profile folder, in a single file, named
cookies.txt.  As I see that you are using Windows XP, it would be:

C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows Username>\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>\cookies.txt

You can view your FF cookies by going to Tools -> Options -> Privacy ->
Show Cookies.  From there, you can view & delete any cookies you wish.

When you tried the new profile, that should have eliminated the
possibility of a corrupt cookie, as cookies are unique to each profile.

Since you have tried both safe mode and a new profile, that doesn't
leave much more to try, other than steps 7 & 8, here:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox#Standard_diagnostic_steps

Hmm, actually, before you do that, see this thread on the ZoneAlarm forums:
http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/board/message?board.id=gen&message.id=45197

I realize that it doesn't fit your symptoms exactly, and that IE seems
to work properly, but it may be worth looking at the suggestions for
settings in ZoneAlarm.

Also, although it doesn't say what the problem was, specifically, this
post seems to imply a problem with ZA and the WSJ site:
http://forums.techguy.org/all-other-software/622042-solved-zone-alarm-firewall-wall.html

It may be worth a quick test, to shut down ZA and then test the site
with FF.

This is what worked: turning off both ad blocking and cookie control
in Zone Alarm. It never occurred to me to suspect Zone Alarm since IE6
worked fine. I will report this to both WSJ and Zone Labs. Many thanks
for helping me debug this.

You're welcome.  Thanks for reporting your solution.

I too, did not suspect ZA earlier, for the same reason.

sorry for replying so late, but I "lost" this thread.....

What you might like to try is to look through the "Program" page of 
ZoneAlarm, to make certain that there is *ONLY ONE* access-line there.  
My thoughts are that, IF there are more than one line, the latter-read 
might cancel out the previous!  Multiple lines are easy to get - each 
time you allow ZA to access the internet (after an update....) it will 
add another line to the permitted programs list!

Generally, it is sdvisable to delete any and all entries that don't look 
cosher - you can view the program location at the bottom of the panel - 
and re-allow that program access when (if ever) it is requested!

I am having the exact same problem you are describing here. This is a
fresh xp install and firefox install. I am using zone alarm securit
suite. The day I installed firefox, I installed the addons, forecast
fox, adblock and adblock g-filter updater or something along those
line. I went to online.wsj.com, and saved the rss feed. The next day i
get the same type screen dumps as the poster here. I used IE7, since I
had to update explorer since my install disk is rather old.That worked
the first time I loaded it, but as soon as I tried to do another
action on the site I got the screen dumps again. Just crazy, I
disabled all addons in firefox, and turned off zone alarm, and no
change. Totally bizarre issue. Just thought I'd say I've had the same
problem.

Firefox 2: Has anyone else had the problem with blanck pages in Firefox?
Folks, Have you encountered a problem where some web pages show up as a blank page in Firefox 2? I have encountered this problem in earlier versions also. Sometimes when I click on a link and just see a blank page but the View Source shows the text that should have been there on the page. I suspect the Javascript in some pages might be causing this. The offending pages show up fine in IE and Opera. Is there any workaround for this? Thanks!
