It's been a bone of contention for me that my favourite browser, Mozilla Firefox, fails to correctly render the Files application in IBM Connections, mainly since we upgraded Connections to 3.0.1 and/or since Mozilla have moved to more frequent releases of the browser, I've gone from v5 to v9 in less than a year.
Let's start with the good news! There have been some issues with Connections Files and versions of Mozilla Firefox since version 4. Files would simply not load. This has been a known issue for a while, and has been causing some consternation as whilst Firefox 3.6 is the latest supported release, so many users have upgraded beyond that version. So, I am really really pleased that IBM has released an iFix for this issue which means that Files works in all current releases of Firefox once more. 126.96.36.199-IC-Multi-Files-HF1-IFLO58492 is what you need. This is not yet on FixCentral, so contact our good friends in IBM support to obtain the fix package (and thanks to David McCarthy in IBM Dublin for making me aware of this news!).
So, to summarise, IBM has released an iFix for Connections 3.0.1 Files - yet to be listed in Fix Central - 188.8.131.52-IC-Multi-Files-HF1-IFLO58492.

Tue, May 7th 2013 7:09a Dave Hay Let's play a game of word association. What subject comes to mind with the words "engaging" and "terrifying"?

In it, they share their experiences of working with IBM customers around the world on securing IBM Business Process Manager solutions.
