The Hubpages site does not work for Firefox on Ubuntu

    Hello Team,
    I was just trying to access the site from my trusty Ubuntu notebook computer and found that all pages for the site are obscured by a "film" that covers the top part of the screen.  This overlay makes it impossible to do anything with the site.  I realize that Ubuntu users that have Firefox 3.0b5 are not high on your hit list, but I thought you would want to know that there are some people who can't use the site.  I have a screenshot of the problem if you are interested.

    Just in case you were wondering, I also keep a copy of IE6 on this computer that runs under Wine for just this type of emergency :-)

    Ubuntu 8.10
    Firefox 3.0b5

    I had the same problem earlier this evening.  Shutting down computer cleared the problem.

    I am running Ubuntu 8.04 and FireFox 3.04 and have not noticed any major problems.

    Edit: I would kind of be interested in seeing the Screen Shot though, so I could see what you were talking about...

    Dottie you were right on the money.  I rebooted and the problem vanished.

    Sorry for posting a false alarm.  You can ignore me from now on ;-)
