Since there was an update to Firefox recently, I decided to try editing a list. I was able to add two games to a list using Firefox version 20.0.1.

EDIT: Scratch that. I was thrown off by the green bar at the top. It didn't actually save the new games.

I went to this site to look for a more suitable HTML 5 browser. I gave Maxthon a shot, and list functions work.

This, to me, seems like Giant Bomb coded the site ahead of the curve. Maybe it's the browsers' jobs to catch up.

I'm back to comment on this thread and keep it alive. I know this is not the only thread about this. In Windows, the list functions do not work properly in the most popular browsers: IE, Firefox, Chrome. In Ubuntu, I believe Firefox worked for me once but I don't remember if it was 100% or partially. I have yet to test browsers on OS X.

Not a bug but a (return) feature request: Please put a button back on game pages to add to list. I used that all the time.

It's working for me tonight!

EDIT: Well, scratch that; I can add to lists if I use the top part of the page to add items. I still can't use the Remove button.

This began working for me (that I noticed) just now. It was not working for days, possibly since the website transition.

Possible Clue

I tested today that in Firefox in Windows 7 64-bit, the buttons don't work. In Internet Explorer, the buttons do work but you get a red error bar at the top of the page upon submission. I booted into a live Linux DVD (Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon 64-bit with codecs) and used Firefox. Editing my lists worked perfectly!

I can't add or remove games from my lists via Firefox nor IE in Windows 7 64-bit. It really stinks. I converted from IGN years ago who did lists better at that time and had better game tracking. Game tracking is improved now. I'm looking forward to the lists at Giantbomb working again!

Not a bug, but I'm wondering where the "add to list" button is these days that was on the old site. That was much quicker to add games to my lists rather than browse to my lists, click on the list I want, then go into edit mode, then search for the game(s) I want to add.

Thanks for the demo link. I'm going to try this on PC.

Man, I'm tired of the shift to cell phone / tablet gaming. IMO, it's a craze that feels new but it's actually backwards. Isn't it? The new game medium is uber expensive, multifunctional devices that have weak controls and performance. The phone I carry around is $600 MSRP. That's a pretty serious console bundle! And people complain about the Vita price. Heh.

I just spent $400 to upgrade my computer. I hope great games that require some horsepower continue to come out. Though it's sad to see game studios get smaller or close, I think the market is over saturated. Games don't seem to perform financially well enough unless they sell millions. Well, the same group of people can't buy every good game that's released anymore like they used to ten years ago. How many must-have games were released per year back then? Three? There are now too many really good games. I should slap myself for saying that, but I think that's how it is.
