Having issues with OmnomIRC? START HERE!
« on: May 02, 2011, 07:31:01 pm »
First off, please make sure your browser is compatible.
Spoiler For Browser Compatibility:
Opera 11 - Full
Firefox 4 - Full (Mildly slow.)
Chrome 11 - Full
IE9 - Most Works(Does not scroll properly, stylesheets do not work quite right.) Really slow.
IE8 - Does not work(Does not load properly).

From here on, I will no longer be supporting IE8-. It just doesn't work right. If you must use IE, please upgrade to IE9. If you don't need to use IE, please use Opera, Firefox, or Chrome.

I will be supporting IE9 and above, though it will receive features and bug fixes at the lowest priority.


Older browsers will not be supported. FF3.0, for example, came out in June of 2008, almost 3 years ago, therefore it will not be supported.
Please clear your browser caches before submitting bug reports. Here's how to clear them!

Spoiler For Opera:
press Alt+T
Select 'Delete Private Data'
Uncheck everything except for 'Delete entire cache' under 'Detailed Options'
Click on 'Delete'
Spoiler For Chrome:
Press Ctrl+Shift+Del
Uncheck everything except for 'Empty the cache'
Click on 'Clear browsing data'
Spoiler For Firefox:
Press Alt+T
Select 'Clear Recent History'
Set time rage to 'Everything'
Unselect everything except 'Cache' under Details
Spoiler For Internet Explorer:
Switch to Opera, Chrome, or Firefox and follow those instructions.
For those stuck on IE:
Press Alt+T
Select 'Delete Browsing History'
Check 'Preserve Favorites Website Data', and 'Temporary Internet Files'
Uncheck everything else
Hit 'Delete'
Spoiler For Safari:
Goto tools(Alt+T on Windows, Command+T on Mac)
Select "Reset Safari"
Deselect all the boxes except Clear Cookies and Clear Cache
Click ok


Quick refreshes:

Opera: F5
Chrome: Ctrl+F5
Firefox: Ctrl+Shift+R
IE: Ctrl+F5
Safari: Ctrl+Shift+R


If you are still having issues after clearing your cache, please make a new topic/reply in an applicable topic with your:
Browser Type/Version
Browser Extensions(noscript, for example)
OS (Windows/Linux)
Version of OS(7/Debian)
When you first noticed the bug

Google Chrome:
   Ctrl + F5: force a reload of the current page

This has saved me quite a bit of time.

Nice, finally a clear reference in one place. And lol @IE.

And for Safari Tools is also Alt+T (on Windows, at least).

If you want force refreshing tips as well, in IE it's Ctrl+F5 and in Firefox and Safari it's Ctrl+Shift+R (not sure about the last one).

You're welcome, everybody.
You didn't the first time, Netham.
And how on Earth do I have more posts than you, Netham? You're, like, one of the first ones to sign up.

In Opera, sometimes CTRL+R does the job.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I think that the cache cleared on all of the installs of netscape still out there about 13 years ago.

When did the last version of Netscape come out, anyway? :P

Also I wonder what is it in Konqueror?

The lies.  I downloaded Netscape 3.0 the other day, it seems to compare quite nicely to FF 4 ^-^
