Dad (age 97!) was telling me that his lightning maps were not showing correctly. When I got over there at the Assisted Living place where he lives, I found that he had some high zoom level set. I reset it to the normal size, but there was a blank area on the landing Blitzortung page. I could display the Vector and dynamic maps. (I reset his bookmark to use the Vector one zoomed into a USA view).

I tried his Edge browser and could see the Fixed map. When I got back home, I tried my computer using Firefox and it displays the Fixed version of the map OK. I tried clearing today's History (everything) from his FF settings, but to no avail.

I'll attach the screen grab of the map/page that I am talking about, using my computer. Not his, he has a blank area where the map is supposed to be.

Any ideas?

Hi Greg,

Is FF updated?

Have you tried Chrome? I no longer like the way FF works on my 2 mobile devices. For one thing, updating Firefox removed tabs on my tablet, which is a larger Samsung Galaxy Tab A7. I now use Google Chrome, except on my Linux computer where FF works fine.

I could see that if he could not access the page at all, but it only affects the one map.

I get an error on FF for Win10 for the redirect from my other domain to my website. I'm getting increasingly miffed about Firefox myself.
