Intranet page won't display properly in Firefox, displays fine in IE
Posted on 2014-02-21
I am very new to web development, and frankly don't know what to search for on google.
One of our intranet pages doesn't display properly when I use Firefox, but does when I use IE10. No one else here uses Firefox so I don't know if I'm the only one (I suspect not), and I can't access our intranet from my personal computer. I have found no other pages (so far) on our intranet that do not display properly in Firefox.
There are no errors, just the bottom half of the page displays a plan background but nothing else. The top half properly displays a series of pictures (slide show?) and a title. When I look at the page source, it appears that the code that would display the missing stuff is commented out, sort of, starting with "<!-- here>" (without the quotes). But, it looks the same when I look at the page source in IE. Most of what is missing is a bunch of links, some to internal apps, some to other pages on the intranet.
Does anyone have any suggestions for where to start researching or what terminology to use (as someone who doesn't know much yet)?
FYI - my background is in Oracle db development; I have only done simple maintenance (i.e. trained monkey) on websites before. I am only just now delving into actual web development.
