Description Arnold Cheng 2006-06-16 02:40:56 UTC
Hi. I'm Arnold Cheng, and my username is Buchanan-Hermit on the English
Wikipedia. I seem to be having problems with the "diff" links when logged in.
When I click the "diff" link, my browsers (both Firefox and Internet Explorer)
seems to be unable to read the .php file it leads to. If I specify that I want
the browser to open the .php file, it keeps loading new windows or tabs, all of
them blank.

There is no problem with the "diff" links when I'm not logged in, suggesting
that perhaps it is a problem with my account. I don't think it's a problem with
my computer; I have tried the same thing with other computers and browsers, with
the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Arnold Cheng

Uncheck "Use external diff by default" in your preferences.
