What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

This might be a temporary problem but I get this error in the firebug console when visiting the meta site. It says WebSocket failed and that Firefox can't connect to the server on ws://sockets.ny.stackexchange.com/.

on this line:
socket = new MozWebSocket(url);

We are testing web sockets on meta at the moment so you will probably see more debug messages in your console than normal. These will go away in future builds - the main issue is why can't you use web sockets? If you're using Firefox, switch to Chrome and try again.

Also try this test: http://websocket.org/echo.html
