Problem with Firefox???

I'm using the equation editor along with latexit.js to speed up writing equations on my site. It looks great on IE and Safari but just noticed that none of my formulas are rendering on Firefox (yikes!). Is there any Firefox bug that is lurking in the background? You can see this in action at:

We'll look into this bug tomorrow. Firefox used to work well, but the latest versions seem to cause problems.

We've turned off support for SVG graphics format. So everything is rendered as a GIF. This is far from ideal, especially given that most good modern browsers can handle scalable fonts. However these can also handle MATHML, which is generally a much better approach to placing a graphic on a page.

We're upgrading latexit, so it uses a range of options, depending upon what the browser will support. This won't happen immediately, so in the mean time its better that you can at least create equations.

It you want to download latexit.js with this patch, then its available here:

There is another important bug in firefox. If you insert a latex formula within the html code (using the dollar symbol), all of the text after the formula desappears. Take a look at this page:


In the examples of the subsection about the latex tags all the text after the latex formulas is missing.
