Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I cannot switch between certain subtabs.

Update The problem is more general. Below are where the tabs do not switch in Stackoverflow.

  • stats: switching between recent, views, newest, and votes
  • stats: switching between pages
  • reputation: switching between by post, by time, graph
  • activity: switching between reviews, revisions, comments, badges, posts, accepts, all
  • responses: switching between answers, comments, revisions, all

Somehow, the following work:

  • top page: switching between Questions, Tags, Users, Badges, Unanswered
  • top page: switching between interesting, featured, hot, week, month
  • question page: switching between features, faq, votes, active, unanswered
  • favorites: switching between added, recent, views, newest, votes
  • user page: switching between info, reputation, activity, responses, favorites
  • user page: switching between stats, prefs, accounts

what web browser and OS? Did you clear your browser cache? – Jeff Atwood Mar 24 '11 at 22:29
I am using Firefox 3.0.5 on Windows Vista SP2. Even after clearing the cache, the problem remains. – sawa Mar 25 '11 at 1:09
What happens when you try to click on one of them? – waiwai933 Mar 25 '11 at 1:39
The button part scrolls to the top of the page (This is for the buttons that come in the middle of the page). The previously grayed button stays gray, and the clicked button does not become gray. The content does not change. The status bar at the bottom says 'Done'. – sawa Mar 25 '11 at 1:42

Why are you using a version of Firefox that is almost 3 years old? Firefox 3.0 was released June 17, 2008.

We generally support the current release of a browser, the previous release, and the one before that.

For Firefox this would be

  • 4.0
  • 3.6
  • 3.5

Is there any reason you can't upgrade to a version of Firefox newer than 3 years ago?

I am using a public computer. The maintenance is bad. If it is outside of support, I can also access stackoverflow at home. I will ask the moderator of the computer to upgrade the browser. I was not sure if the browser was the problem. – sawa Mar 25 '11 at 1:54

The pages you are having trouble with involve ajax javascript calls, it is likely javascript is not properly working on the browser, or the old browser no longer compatible.

As Jeff says, probably time to get an upgrade, I doubt we will fix any bugs on the site in 3 year old browsers.

Thank you. I asked the person in charge of the computer to upgrade Firefox. – sawa Mar 25 '11 at 7:26
