Recipe links don't work in Firefox but they do in IE
When I was tried to get to the recipe links from
using Firefox 3.0 I get a blank page.
Using Internet Exporer 7 the pages recipe pages load correctly.
I'm not having a problem so far with other Chow pages or other sites.
Using Vista, in case that makes a difference.
Hrmm, I tried testing this, and I'm able to get them in both Firefox and IE, but only if I'm logged OUT. If I'm logged in, I get a blank page.
Can you check if that's the same for you, jackie, and I'll raise a problem ticket for Engineering.

Same problem in Safari
Mac OS X 10.5.4
Blank screen for recipes unless I log out.
My workaround is to search for recipes while logged in in Firefox, then switch over to simultaneously running Safari, unlogged in, past in URL and read the page. Not an ideal fix but it work for now.
The problem seems NOT to be related to the particular browser. Here are the
server headers returned when a logged-in user requests a recipe page. Zero-length
content no matter what the user-agent:
