Website Updates

Introducing new JavaScript to our Website

Previously, we haven’t used JavaScript particularly heavily on our website, but the ability to use client side processing is increasingly appealing as it allows us to introduce new features while minimising server load.

Previously, JavaScript has been misused and misunderstood by developers, but modern web technologies, HTML5, responsive web design and more powerful devices have brought JavaScript into its own.

If you don’t have JavaScript enabled on your browser, then you won’t be able to enjoy these new features. In most of these cases, we’ll try to provide a fallback, but we cannot provide the same great experience in all situations. In some cases, you may see a notice explaining that we can’t provide the feature at all without JavaScript.

Contact us with any questions you may have about our JavaScript.

Taking Security Seriously

We use TLS/SSL on our site (in short that means encryption). The green padlock in your address bar verifies that your connection to our site is private and secure. TLS/SSL is important because it keeps data transferred between you and us secure. Find out more about why TLS/SSL is important on the Mozilla Website.

Mozilla is a non-profit organisation committed to the open web. They’re the people behind the Firefox Browser and their technical documentation underpins how we design and build our website.

Details about Browser and Platform Support

Our website supports the latest, stable releases of all major browsers and platforms. On Windows, we support Internet Explorer 10-11 / Microsoft Edge, as well as the other major browsers. Full details in the tables below.

Alternative browsers which use the latest version of WebKit, Blink, or Gecko, whether directly or via the platform’s web view API, are not explicitly supported. However, Bootstrap should (in most cases) display and function correctly in these browsers as well. More specific support information is provided below.

Supported Mobile Browsers

Generally speaking, our website supports the latest versions of each major platform’s default browsers. Note that proxy browsers (such as Opera Mini, Opera Mobile’s Turbo mode, UC Browser Mini, Amazon Silk) are not supported.

For Firefox, in addition to the latest normal stable release, we also support the latest Extended Support Release (ESR) version of Firefox.

Unofficially, Bootstrap should look and behave well enough in Chromium and Chrome for Linux, Firefox for Linux, and Internet Explorer 9, though they are not officially supported.

For a list of some of the browser bugs that our Bootstrap CSS/JS has to grapple with, see the Bootstrap Wall of Browser Bugs.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer 10+ is supported; IE9 and down is not. Please be aware that some CSS3 properties and HTML5 elements are not fully supported in IE10, or require prefixed properties for full functionality.
