Guess some definition is missing in JS part.

You mean here in this forum? Yeah, there are a couple of errors and I believe Iíve addressed some in the past but nobody would listen anyway, and less than ever fix it. That it's possible shows that the forum on http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/ is valid (just XHTML transitional but still, no real error in error console).

I don't get any JS errors in IE7, which has script logging turned on. I gather this is on a specific page(s) on CF, and not the frontpage?

No. In my FF- and firebug-1.05 , I get this error in almost all pages and firebug points to this code

<script type="text/javascript">
//randomize order of contents with DIV class="group1"

Hmmm strange, I don't get any errors in FF 2.x either. I'll have to check this out in more detail later.

Oh! Hehe, I know why, I know why! But I won’t tell ya! :p

Nah, just kidding, I will tell you: The errors are caused because the Firefox Adblocker extension blocks some scripts that may be related to ads. That’s why frequent checking of the availability of an object is recommended. I don’t wanna sound supercilious but reading about unobtrusive JavaScript (http://onlinetools.org/articles/unobtrusivejavascript/chapter1.html) (especially this first chapter) – and applying the learned lessons – might be an option. ;)

Ah yes, the ad blocker is probably it. Now, instead of checking for the availability of JavaScript objects, maybe what I should be doing is checking for and disabling ad blockers. :D

[Ö] maybe what I should be doing is checking for and disabling ad blockers. :D

Check out http://dasauge.de with Adblocker enabled. While you may not understand what the message says literally (without a dictionnary (http://dict.leo.org/ende?lang=en), at least) and while this doesnít deactivate ad blockers it may give you some inspiration.

Made me disable it for that site, at least.
