|Firefox 0.8 on Linux Red Hat 9, WeBWorK 2.0
I created a very simple problem containing five integrals. I built a
set with just that problem. I went to do the set, and one of the
integrals wasn't there. The other four integrals appeared as images
(just as they should), but the fifth image didn't show up. The answer
box was there, just no question.
So I went and looked at each of the 30 students' sets. Of the 30, 24
were just fine. 6 had an image missing, just like mine (although it
wasn't the same image in every case).
So I looked at the html source. It referred to an image. I SSHed into
the WeBWorK box, tracked down that image and sure enough, there it was,
just where it was supposed to be. I went back to the browser and
entered the path to just that image and it displayed just fine.
But no matter what I do, it does not show up when I go to work that
problem. I've tried refreshing the page, logging out and back in,
nothing works. The page displays perfectly in Konqueror, Opera, galeon,
and Safari. Only Firefox causes a problem.
This is clearly a Firefox problem, not a WeBWorK problem. I'm posting it here in order to:
(1) ask if anyone has seen similar behavior and/or other bizarre Firefox/WeBWorK issues.
(2) warn you that, if students call you wondering why their WeBWorK
problem looks funny, you might want to ask them what browser they're
using before throwing in the towel.
