I don’t know what it is, but Firefox is beginning to get on my nerves a little bit.
The problem at the moment is viewing my own Blog, right here, this site that you are reading right now. The Theme I use is one which I really love, it is perfect for what I write – a messy sort of layout with coffee, letters, a pen and even a mobile phone (the only the thing which doesn’t fit for me, but still). It is clear and easy to read, well laid out, doesn’t distract from the content.
The thing is, with Firefox, despite all of its advantages, I haven’t been able to see the Theme, the complete layout, properly for a while. The images at the top – the Header Images – just do not seem to want to load properly. With Internet Explorer, everything is there. I can see the phone, the coffee cup, the letters and everything. With Firefox they are just a splotch of colors because the images haven’t loaded properly.
None of us, and I am sure that I can speak for everyone who has a website on the Internet, wants their work to appear in anything but the best light. We all want visitors to come to a perfect site, find their way around easily, read and enjoy. But when the first impression – at least with Firefox – is one of a badly produced Theme? When the first impression is one of a site where the owner hasn’t kept everything working as it should? Not too many people will stay and take the trouble to look any further, and that defeats the object completely.
Perhaps it really is time to start looking at another browser and move on from Firefox. Except, that only helps me when I check out my own Blog. That about all the other people who use Firefox and come here for a little bit of pleasurable reading?
And perhaps, moving on with my thoughts, I have been a little bit too brash with Tumblr recently. You see, quite a few of the images on various PhotoBlogs haven’t been loading properly either, and I’ve been blaming Tumblr and their servers. Is that fair? Perhaps not, perhaps the problem lies with Firefox.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
