Problem solved

Since I've been dropping on entrecard, I've always wondered why some blogs will load perfectly fine, yet their card won't show, even though their profile says they have one. Well, The Exaggerator has figured it out. I would imagine this goes for when entries don't show as well. This is not counting entrecard issues (that happen more often than not...lol)

Here's his blog entry:

READER, IN JUST THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS, YOUR CORRESPONDENT HAS SWITCHED OVER FROM USING INTERNET EXPLORER TO MOZILLA FIREFOX as the browser-of-choice, largely because of some problems seeing EntreCard widgets for drops in some of the member blogs using Internet Explorer.

Which, when seen in Firefox, can actually be seen...


Not sure if I'm going to switch, but at least I know what's going on now. I was starting to think it was something wrong with my computer. Have you had any issues like this?

Highly recommend Firefox. I was a huge IE fan and then I was given the fox to try and it is a lot better! There great apps and plugins to try (Speed Dial is wonderful if you frequent many pages....) And it saves all your settings if your comp freezes while browsing or writing!

Definitely prefer FireFox over IE... IE has way too many security issues for my taste...FireFox has been great for me! ;)

I am a Mac user so I haven't used IE in YEARS! Didn't even realize people were still using IE!

Firefox is soooo much better than IE. I really recommend switching. It's faster than IE, the pages load properly and Firefox has a lot less bugs than IE. Since I downloaded Firefox I haven't used IE once.

Have a great day!

Yes you should move to Firefox...and also when you load the blog the first time and u dont see the EC widget try to reload. Firefox will save you time.

Firefox was recommended to me over IE a year or more ago due to security issues with IE. Then when I started blogging and using Entrecard, I found it to be a huge time saver. I'd recommend trying it - if you don't like it, don't make it your primary browser. But I bet you'll like it!

Firefox is absolutely the best. Makes IE weep with shame. It is much more secure. It's so customizable, too. I'm amazed anyone is still using IE.

Make the switch!

I was constantly being frustrated by missing widgets in IE ... most sites work better in Firefox..and the Entrecard toolbar makes a huge difference in how easy it is to drop 300/day too
