KB10063: Using AxCMS.net with MacOS and Mozilla FireFox

There are difficulties using content editor in AxCMS.net 9.x with FireFox 3.x on MacOS X.

SYMPTOMS

You are trying to use AxCMS.net Content Editor on MacOS X with Mozilla FireFox.

Clicking Edit shows the text editor, and you can type the text in the beginning of the label, but if you click somewhere else in the text to insert some text to the middle – you are not able to type.

CAUSES

There is an iFrames related bug in Mozilla FireFox on MacOS X reported here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=601094

SOLUTION

There is no direct solution to this issue unless Mozilla releases a fix for the bug. We could suggest the following workarounds:

  • Try clicking the Search box in the SilverLight ribbon for example, and then click back to text
  • Avoid using AxCMS.net Content Editor with FireFox on MacOS X.
  • Use AxCMS.net version 8.5.0 (public) or 8.6.0 (only available for Solution Providers).

 

APPLIES FOR

AxCMS.net version 9.0.0 and above.
