Launches Video Download Service but Doesn't Support Firefox launched a beta (of course) of its video download service today. Too bad it doesn't support Firefox (sigh).

Firefox version is above and IE version is below.

What's funny is that Firefox users are exactly the type of tech-savvy early adopters that would be prepared to use such a service. Ah well, I'm sure they'll fix it.

WHAT? Were they drunk when they wrote that CSS? They couldn't have meant to do that.

OMG! what crap designer done that! everybody know design for firefox and fix to accommodate everything else damn!

That is one of the most funniest things I have seen for a long time.

The code is a mess as well, Good luck to try and fix that :D

Pretty funny, eh?! Seems like TechCrunch beat me to the scoop and in the comments someone pointed out that if you do a 'hard refresh' the site will display properly in FF. No idea if it will actually work though.

Oh, snap! Just followed the link today and it appears WalMart put an HTTP UserAgent sniffer on the video downloads pages. NOW, rather than gobbedy-gook, FF browsers will get a formal "Browser Unsupported" message; complete with a link to download IE from MSFT. Way to include us, Walee-world! (sigh indeed)
