If you are using IE8 or 9 ONLY, can you please have a look at http://librivox.org/search and post here what IE number and OS (Windows/Mac) you are on, and if the authors display (also whether you can click and see titles, genres and languages.)

Thanks!

IE 9 - which is my browser of choice :)
Version 9.0.8112.16421
Update Versions: 9.0.19 (KB2862772)
Windows O/S: Windows 7 Pro - Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)

Navigating to http://librivox.org/search:
The page comes up in browser, with the Author tab selected. In the lower right quandrant (where the list of authors should appear), I get the "spinning wheel" (waiting/looping/in progress) indicator. The list never appears.

I can select the title, genre, and languages tabs, but again, only the heading for the lower right quadant appears; no list, waiting indicator). Searching for specific values returns the same issue. In the Title tab, the all, solo, and group options do not appear.

Fortunately, I also have Chrome (29.0.1547.33 m), which seems to be working correctly, so I've been using that browser for searching.

Hope this helps,

Perfect, thanks. I might be asking for this periodically, while we debug the issue. :)

I'm similar; I've got used to the IE interface, and am still using XP.

I've installed Firefox and am gradually shifting to it, but it forgets my login details for the LV site, so I still use IE to come here.

How's it looking now, Oh People who Posted Above? It's okay for me on IE8, although sometimes it takes some seconds to load.

Wow, that sounds good. Something for a brief post on the front page blog? A lot of people who never come to the forum read that - and it will be a relief for them.
