    Known Issues

    • By default, Firefox 1.x on RedHat and SuSE Linux disable updates to the browser's status bar. This default setting needs to be changed in order for the rich text editors to function properly on these platforms. To change the default setting do the following:

      1. Log on with administrative (root) privileges.

      2. Locate the firefox.js file by executing the following command: find / -name firefox.js.

      3. Navigate to the directory containing the firefox.js file.

      4. Make the firefox.js file writable.

      5. Edit the firefox.js file with a text editor and change the security preference "dom.disable_window_status_change" preference from "true" to "false".

      For example: pref("dom.disable_windows_status_change", false);

      6. Save and exit.
      WARNING: this may expose your system to a security risk. Please consult your local IT support team for guidance with this issue.
    • The publish wizard on Linux systems is too large to show all options when the screen resolution is set to 1024 x 768. Users on this platform should adjust their resolution to 1280 x 1024.
    • Cheatsheets and Online Help are not localized.
    • Refer to the detailed CM Support Notes for caveats and usability issues on CM Support in EPF Composer.

    Defects Fixed
