    Ad Banner Problem with Firefox but fine with IE

    cory@aacix.com

      Hello Ajax,

       

      I have created my second websites name greencityaac.com under my L:\aacix\greencityaac. When it underconstruction I save all the files under location aacix folder and I have no problem to browse greencityaac web on either Firefox or IE.

       

      But after I moved to a new location such as L:\GreenCityAAC, I got the message and cant view flash when I tried to browse greencityaac.com on Firefox but fine on IE.

       

       

      “ java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: fprotate.class “

       

      Is it related to java paths after I moved it to the new location? I already copied fphover, fphoverx, fprotate and fprotatex from aacix to greencityaac but still have problem.

       

      Can you please help? You can take a look greencityaac.com on Firefox and IE then you will see what I'm trying to say.

       

      Thanks,

      Cory

          I think you may need to have a look at your markup first. Have a look here http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fgreencityaac.com%2F and see 98 errors and 22 warnings,

           

          As far as the problem within FFI get the following message

          load: class fprotate.class not found.

          This is a problem that is not within your powers to fix. I would report it as a bug in FF. The fact that you were able to view the contents before was probably due to the fact that you were using an earlier version of FF.

           

          I hope this helps.

              Hi Cory,

               

              maybe these informations from my FF will help you (as you saw too):

               

              Laden: Klasse fprotate.class nicht gefunden (means "load: Class fprotate.class not found)

              You should control your path for this "fprotate.class"-file.

               

              And here the other informations by using FF:
              java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: fprotate.class
              at sun.plugin2.applet.Applet2ClassLoader.findClass(Unknown Source)

              Ausnahme: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: fprotate.class

               

              And in addition to Ben Pleysier's hint to validate your website you should really correct this:


              "No DOCTYPE found! Checking with default XHTML 1.0 Transitional Document Type."

               

              No DOCTYPE Declaration could be found or recognized in this document. This generally means that the document is not declaring its Document Type at the top. It can also mean that the DOCTYPE declaration contains a spelling error, or that it is not using the correct syntax.

              The document was checked using a default "fallback" Document Type Definition that closely resembles “XHTML 1.0 Transitional”.

              It is recommended to use a DOCTYPE declaration as the very first thing in your HTML document, to identify the precise language being used. For example, for a typical XHTML 1.0 document:

                    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
                      "
              http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
                    <html xmlns="
              http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
                      <head>
                        <title>Title</title>
                      </head>

                      <body>
                        <!-- ... body of document ... -->
                      </body>
                    </html>

               

              IE is a little bit more generous in reproducing websites.After that let's look for the rest.

                Hi Ben,

                 

                I was able to view the contents on the same day that I moved GreenCityAAC to a new location and have not updated my FF for a long time.

                 

                Sincerely,

                Cory Nguyen

                  Hello Hans-G.,

                   

                  Your message is really confusing me because my website knowledge is limitted. How can I fix this?

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Cory

                    Looks to me like this page was built in Front Page with Front Page Extensions.

                    I'm no expert with Front Page but I think your server needs special add-ons for FP extensions to work.

                     

                    Contact your web host.  Or, switch to a different banner rotator script in jQuery or JavaScript.  Java Applets are seldom used anymore.

                      Hi Cory,

                       

                      sorry for confusing, I'll try to clarify the facts and I'll reduce my entries to the essentials:


                      FireFox "said": failed:http://greencityaac.com/../fprotate/class.class. That means (for me) either there is no "fprotate.class"-file in your directory or your path to it isn't correct.

                       

                      Then, in my attempt to validate your site there was found in the very first line this notice:

                       

                      "No DOCTYPE found! Checking with default XHTML 1.0 Transitional Document Type."

                       

                      And I quoted from the validationsite: It is recommended to use a DOCTYPE declaration as the very first thing in your HTML document, to identify the precise language being used. And now an example (from my German DW):

                       

                      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
                      <html xmlns="
                      http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
                      <head>
                      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
                      <title>Unbenanntes Dokument</title>
                      </head>

                      <body>
                      </body>
                      </html>

                       

                      On your side, however, this (head entry) is missing, you start immediately with this:


                      html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">
                      <head>

                       

                      For the InternetExplorer, that's no problem, as we can see, IE is a little bit more generous in reproducing websites, as I said, but ....Ok, let's see whether you will now have a better use for my thoughts and reflections.

                       

                      Hans-G.
