Is your display or settings acting strangely when your use PubMed or other National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) websites? If so, you may want to check your browser. NCBI created a new chart for its users. The chart shows which versions of IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Google Chrome are supported by NCBI web pages.
Another tip is to check to be sure that your browser settings are up-to-date. Cookies, Java Script (scripting), pop-ups need to be enabled for full functionality in the NCBI websites. You may also run into issues if the date, time, and time zone settings are not correct on your computer.
Check your browser soon since support for Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 7 on NCBI sites will cease by the end of the year.
As always, if you are having trouble with PubMed or other databases, don’t hesitate to contact us here at the Public Health Library.
The chart and more information are available vis the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region’s website.
