Microsoft Support Site and Firefox 1.5

When I upgraded from Firefox 1.0.7 to Firefox 1.5rc1, I found that the Microsoft Knowledge Base articles would only display about a screenful of content, then add the footer. A subsequent upgrade to 1.5 final seemed to have resolved it, but now it’s back (. I did get a pleasant surprise yesterday – some pages appeared to have displayed correctly! Further investigation revealed that the MSKB articles that are rendered poorly by Firefox have the format;en-us;XXXXXX

and the MSKB articles that render correctly have the format

(replace XXXXXX with your favourite MSKB article number)

Now all I need to do is find a URL rewriter extension for Firefox. If I can’t find one, then I might have to write my own.

Thought I’d also try the Blogger for Word addin to see how it goes…
