For a (very) brief period, I was able to use Firefox when working on my online classes. Unfortunately, it stopped once Firefox v. 11 came out. Now every time I try using Firefox, I get a check browser error message saying I'm using Firefox 1.X and it's unsupported. When I use Firefox, I am unable to open word document attachments in either email messages or assignment tools. Any idea when this is going to be fixed? My university is using CE 8. Am I stuck using Explorer until my school eventually decides get version 9?
This happens each time a new browser is released until the browser is certified by Blackboard. At least the browser check part that is. Why it is not opening your files could be a browser setting itself. I too upgraded my browser and can still open the files in my Blackboard courses.
