Microsoft Blocking Firefox: Resolved

As an update to the issue I reported the other day, Microsoft has now fixed the problem on their server. They saw the buzz from Firefox supporters and corrected it in under 2 days. I’d like to personally thank Microsoft for the quick resolution. No word on that cryptic error message though.

The gradient on the top of some pages is still broken (while in other places they replace it with an image). But that doesn’t hamper use of the site. Just appearance.

So thanks to everyone at Microsoft who resolved it, and those around the blogosphere for getting their attention.

    If I’m not mistaken, I believe Microsoft is using a filter for the gradient at the top of their site, in which case it would never work on Firefox unless they switched it out for an image. Unless, of course, Firefox decides to support filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient. 😉
