Why doesn't the Lotusphere page redirect support Firefox?

If I go to in Firefox, it redirects to and shows a completely blank page.  If I go there in Internet Explorer, it redirects to, and show the Lotusphere page.  If I go to directly in Firefox, it displays just fine.

What could be wrong with the redirect from to, and how could IBM leave this as a problem, given that lots of people who are interested in Lotusphere use Firefox, being the technologically savvy and Microsoft-bashing folks that they are.  I thought it was a fluke a week ago, but it is still the case today.  I guess I'll write to Rocky and ask if he can do something about it.

Problem resolved.  Not sure what the original problem was, as I tried on three machines and it failed on all last week, but whatever it was, it now works if I clear my cache.  Phew!  IBM has confirmed that the problem is resolved as well.

When I go to it redirects to as it should.

Could it be machine specific - a problem in some caching on your box?

How does it work for anyone else?

It must have been a problem last week, as I tried on three machines, but now if I clear the cache, it works on each of them. Thanks, and sorry for any confusion.

Now try to figure out why doesn't redirect to the Lotusphere page. :)
