My kids are trying to use a site where you "build" dolls by dragging and dropping different body parts onto a central area to make a doll.
So far I can only get it to wotk in IE.

In gecko browsers the drag & drop doesn't work at all.
In Opera the drag works but when they drop in the central area the bit dissapears from view.

Any ideas why this dosen't work in Firebird ?

Looks to my uneducated eye, in Page Source, as though this is an IE-only site. I even tried User Agent Switcher, choosing IE therein, with no luck.

This page uses a JavaScript object called document.all which is only supported by IE4+ and partly by Opera. The drag'n'drop stuff on this page could easily be done by using the Document Object Model, which is an official standard and supported by all modern browsers (including IE5+). Maybe you could email the webmasters and give them a subtle hint?

I've e-mailed the webmaster with a link to this thread.
So far no response
