Moodle Browser Settings

Moodle is compatible with most modern web browsers including Internet Explorer (v7 or Higher), Mozilla Firefox (all versions), Google Chrome (v4 and higher) and Safari (v3 and higher). You may not be able to access all of Moodles features in every browser

The recommended browsers for Moodle are Firefox 3.6.x and later, Chrome v4 and later, or Internet Explorer 7 and later. Safari on OSX supports most Moodle functions except for the text editor in Forum posts and other areas (you will see a plain text box instead of an editor window). You can still post to these areas, you just cannot easily format your text with bullets, bold text etc.


Please disable pop-up blocking software you may have installed on your computer or pop-up blocking features that you may have enabled in your browser while using Moodle. Please note that some additional browser toolbars that you may have installed can also act as pop-up blockers. These could include the Yahoo toolbar, Google toolbar, MSN Toolbar and more. Please check to see if your browser has any of these, or other toolbars that may block pop-ups, installed and disable their pop-up blocking feature while using Moodle.

If you are experiencing problems viewing the Moodle site or it's content please ensure that your browser is configured as listed below:
