    I can't see some content - says I've got a plugin missing - though I've got all the major ones.
    Plugin Finder Service

    Source code shows:


    PS: Had to put the above as image - I tried to encode it, put in 'code' and 'pre' tags but the code was always renderred. How to you post code here?

    What is it?

    Aim instead for a pastebin. Of the bins with which I'm familiar, I prefer Pastie for its language-oriented highlighting, and for its use of OpenID etc..

    Avoid pasting to Diigo group topics, to Diigo notes, any code that may be 'exotic'.

    (We can argue that the pre tag is extremely non-exotic, but that's not the way things work hereabouts. You might like to enable e-mail notification for and .)

    Notes and topics aside: it should be safe to draw Diigo highlights over code.

    @Graham Thanks! Gives me a reason to try pastebins, - which I had bookmarked but never thought of using (as generally I manage to directly write code)

    The plugin issue has resolved it's self - I can now view the page o_O ??

    This might reproduce the symptom, or something similar:

    1. in Firefox, visit

    2. within the preview frame (ignoring the Diigo meta surroundings) click

    That example (2) does not reproduce the effect.

    What probably happened on 7th October:

    * click(s) within the preview frame of Diigo Meta, through to a page for which Firefox could not find a required plug-in.

    Bug is reproduced by simply visiting in Firefox,
