Board » Technical Support » firefox not running client

I can access the sailonline site but when I open a race I get an error page directing me to get flash. needless to say, I have flash. I cleared sailonline cookies. using firefox 14.0.1
The other day Chrome was having a hissy fit so I uninstalled it and moved to FF and it works fine.. although I find it freezes after a while (a documented issue with too many windows apparently). I have now reinstalled Chrome and it is behaving.

I am using WIN7 and there seem to be some WIN7/Flash type issues.

If the "usual" doesn't cure then I think an uninstall/clean/reboot/reinstall of the browser might work?

Maybe someone else with specific knowledge of FF can help.

I agree about Win7 / Flash having issues, BTW it freezes my SOL tabs yet other tabs in FF keep working. I have to reboot my laptop to get SOL working again.

My WinXP is running the same version of FF (14.0.1) and Flash (11,3,300,270) and it has no problems, in fact under XP, the Weather Forecast bar is different, I have access to the Options button on the Help tab and can enable both predictors.

I need to take care of some business and when I come back +/- 3 hours I will take some sreencaps in the different environments and put them in imageshack, the forum upload facility restricts me to three (3) uploads?

BTW, there is no Win7-02.jpg because the option like under XP is not there.

edit The last one Win7-SOL-frozen.jpg means just that, I could not use ANY tab or button on the screen. /edit

Ahoi Laozi !

In your Win7 enviroment you are using the OLD client - therefore its different.. Veryfy that the end of the URL is not # , but ?beta=true ....

I posted this in the Flash Crash... forum. It may help.

I use Chrome on Win 7 Pro 64bit. Haven't had the problem while SOLing but have in the past. I now run a freeware named Secunia PSI (secunia.com/products/consumer/psi) to make sure all versions of apps are up to date. Making sure you have the latest version of Chrome and Flash seems to help and after each race I run CCleaner to clear the crap out of temp files. I did run SOL contiuously in the Lindisfarne Raid without any probs. I run SOL in a seperate window with maybe only 2 or 3 tabs for Brainaid other SOL stuff like Google Earth. I then use Firefox for any other browsing I may do while SOLing. Hope that helps.
Sorry, last post was me

stoerte and Tyger, tx. for the tips.
@Tyger, I know use JV16 (will do the same) and I will look into the Flash Crash thread.

I guess, besides my mistakes, I will leave this on the shelf for the time being.

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
