    Nopes, It's normal for me. Try closing all browser windows, clearing your cookies, cache etc and then reopen to see if it works.

    Sorry, I have been messing with the site. It should be back to normal now, just clear browser cache and refresh the page if you see any abnormalities like missing images or broken layout

    Copying this posted by busant20 in a separate thread:

    Just opened Buxr (the time now is 5:14 pm, June 23rd, 2010) and I got weird page. Blank background just white no colors but I can see all pictures of the deals. It's only happening to me or everybody got the same thing?

    I'm getting this "white background" issue as well Yan.

    It seems to be affecting both IE and Firefox, so I don't think its related to the recent Firefox update released today.

    My best guess (based on what I changed) is that some DNS propagation hasn't gone through so the layout may be broken for some time. It will recover over time though... shouldn't take more than a few hours.

    The only part of the site that looks right for me is the wiki page. Everything else is messed up, I can't even vote - I managed to get one vote to work after repeated attempts.

    I have discovered that voting on deals is possible by visiting the Hot Deals link at the top of the main page and voting from that particular screen by not going to the deal page itself.

    I still have an issue as well, white background, no images. Just text. Firefox was updated last night. Had a few bugs then too.
    Also, the errors says "getMouseXY not defined" if that helps.

    I tried on Firefox and IE and the results are the same.

    I can list but can't vote and all the pages are distorted with the white background.

    Well, it seems that I fixed it for the half of the people that complained previously but others (who didn't have a problem before) start seeing issues now.

    Is there anybody who had no problems before and doesn't now? Or is it a literal 'flip flop'? Smile

    Seriously though, I think I fixed it now and it is just a matter of time before the site recovers for all of you...

      Somebody already tested that theory 17 hours ago, and it was of no help.

      "FYI: Re-installing Firefox will not resolve the issue. (I just tried.)"

      Everybody should save themselves the bother of a Firefox re-installation. (Not that it takes long.)

      The situation evolves by minute since I am changing things on my side - 17 hours looks like eternity and trying something now can give you different results that the same thing an hour ago.

      That said, re-installing the browser will not help. At this point it is just time. It is DNS propagation issue, I did all I could at this point and we just have to wait till it comes back to normal.
