I have a number of reports on this website. All reports look good in IE7 and 8. With Firefox - absolutely nothing except the report toolbar shows! Also, the report toolbar show total page number as 0, and all the navigation buttons are disabled.
Wow! I am completely stumped! What is so different with FF and these reports?
Help is most appreciated.

MS ReportViewer is composed of activex. But FF. Chrome does not support . (correct me if am wrong). so printer button will not be displayed on those browsers

Not all report functionality is supported by all browsers. , Internet Explorer for Windows is the only browser that is guaranteed
to support the complete set of features for working with reports.Thanks for your understanding. In the following edition of Visual Studio, Microsoft might consider supporting all the browsers.

I understand "Not all report functionality is supported by all browsers". To me, this implies that SOME report functionality is supported, but in this case
there is NOTHING! The report does not show at all!
If I told this to my client they would either kick me out, or kick out .Net, or both.
Any ideas are most appreciated.

You need to install Microsoft report runtime (ReportViewer.exe).
download and install

Thanks, cnranasinghe, it is a logical suggestion. ReportViewer is already installed on my development computer. Without it, the project would not compile.
I think You-Hu Fu is right. I'll have to wait for the next version of VS.
Interestingly enough, this was not a problem with VS2008. Only with VS2010 did this and other ReportViewer problems appear.

Noramlly reports display in many browsers, problem is the print button. Print button is a ActiveX control. You can override the built in print functionality and implement your own.
