    Default Myspace problems, plus other issues

    Hi,

    I am aware that many problems with Myspace are not exclusive to OpenSUSE, and are mostly Myspace's fault, but I was wondering if anyone had ways around some of them. The biggest problem is uploading pictures. I have to hear it every time someone tries to upload pictures to Myspace. Myspace sees the pictures on the hard drive, even displays them, but it either hangs while uploading or says "you must select at least one picture". I have gotten pictures to upload using a Windows virtual machine, but it is not guaranteed and is very slow. There are other things I can't think of right now.

    The other problem is, in general, I am experiencing reliability issues. Every time I log in now firefox pops up, but it has the default theme and not the color scheme it usually does (that matches the rest of the system). How can I stop this?

    Some sites are very bad designed / programmed and not following the w3c
    standard. When it comes with javascript, DOM or CSS some pages just "crash"
    and actions (like file upload) cannot be performed.

    There is little we (users) can do here, just test it with another browser to
    see what happens :-(. You can launch Firefox' errors console, see what
    fails and report to webmaster.

    What desktop are you using (kde, gnome...)? Can you link to a snapshot so we
    can get an idea?

    Or do you mean Firefox's own theme (such "tango")?
