Hallelujah, my Firefox has decided to start displaying LJ again correctly (it wasn't threading comments properly, which made them virtually unreadable). I don't mind occasionally using IE, but I'm so glad to switch back.

Another interesting quirk my Firefox has (or my lj layout, I don't know) is with embedded videos. I often have to go into someone's post to see what video they're actually trying to link to, because in my friendspage view, it'll display a video that someone else posted and I watched. A week ago. And since then, every video will display as that one. So for ages, I was getting cognitive dissonance everytime because it appeared that non-pop people kept posting baby BSB footage. But no, they were posting something else, but it'd display as that.

So this afternoon, I was very confused (but amused!) that Travis was posting that a typical Saturday for him was...a video of The Cab from SXSW. Of course, it turns out that a typical Saturday is actually watching Eddie Murphy with Hemingway, so that's sweet too. I'm a little confused by his post before that - was the fire in his room in Pete's place? Is Pete a pyro who tries to lure friends into having to share his bed by setting fire to the guest room?

Watching behind-the-scenes videos from FOB tours often makes me feel like I'm watching the sado-masochistic love affair of Charlie and Dirty. "C'mon, just one punch".

Today, [livejournal.com profile] iibnf and I checked out a cool little exhibit about the poorly-named Rum Rebellion against Governor Bligh. Why that gets the focus, when the trigger was actually about property rights (an even more quintessentially Sydney obsession than booze), escapes me. The Moran Portrait Prize and Photographic Prize exhibits were pretty good too. Then we visited [livejournal.com profile] tapedeck, and then had a little yum cha. Oh, and we accidentally ended up in a St Patricks Day picnic area (we were so confused why we had to have our bags checked just to walk through Hyde Park).

I mentallly refer to FOB behind the scenes touring stuff as "Reasons You Might Reconsider Being Friends With Pete Wentz."

It's amazing how he's found so many people who share his non-mainstream kinks...

I've had the same problem with embedded videos ever since LJ introduced them, I think.

It can be very frustrating.

I don't have that problem with embedded videos, but I do have a problem where they will all display at the very top of the post, no matter where the poster intended for them to show up. It happens everywhere: on my friendspage, on the entry itself, on the other person's journal.

That is odd!

My friends page meeses up embedded videos like that too sometimes! Though it's randomly gotten better lately. But still, I used to get really confused.

And apparently Pete started the fire in Travis' room. I don't even know what to DO with those two!

That is the weird thing, because sometimes embedded videos do display correctly, sometimes not. And it's not consistent, even to where the videos are hosted.

I saw that this morning. ::headdesk:: Someone really needs to bring Pete a fire extinguisher as a gift to the next Meet and Greet they have.

I had that problem with embedded videos, now they just get stuck 2 seconds into the clip. EVERY DAMN TIME! A restart fixed the problem yesterday, but I don't want to have to close all of my windows every time I want to watch a video!

Bizarre. Another thing I've noticed is that if I've had a post open for a while in a tab, then go to play an embedded video, it'll say "Sorry video no longer available". But if I just refresh the tab, it works fine.
