Virgin foxes Firefox?

Pot luck site compatibility

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Anyone planning to collect a picture message sent by a Virgin Mobile subscriber will need to have a range of web browsers available, as the operator's site compatibility seems to be changing daily.

We were first alerted to the problem with the Virgin GetMessage site yesterday morning when a reader informed us that the site wasn't working with Internet Explorer, though it worked fine in Firefox, despite the warning:

You are using another browser that is not Internet Explorer 6.0 or above. With the browser that you are using we cannot guarantee the full functionality of this website

We contacted Virgin for comment on this Firefox-friendly policy, but were kept waiting for several hours. By the end of the day the site was working fine in both browsers.

We took another look this morning and found the problem has transferred itself from Internet Explorer to Firefox, which today cannot access the site at all. So right now the site works fine with Internet Explorer, and Opera, though the latter gives a warning that it's not compatible.

So if you're planning to download a picture message sent from a Virgin Mobile subscriber, you might want to download a few new browsers first, just to be on the safe side. Lynx anyone? ®
