Supported Browsers

While we do our best to test the Typepad application on as many browsers and platforms possible, we recommend the latest version Firefox for best results.

Download the latest version of Firefox for Windows and Mac here.

  • When viewing feed URLs directly in Chrome, the feed will display as text instead of an easy to read HTML page like other browsers. We recommend connecting your blog to FeedBurner to make sure your feed URL displays options to subscribe regardless of which browser is being used.
  • Download latest version.

The + sign indicates the most recent, non-beta version of the browser. Typepad does support some older browsers, but for best results, use the latest stable (non-beta) build of your preferred browser.

Other Browsers

If you prefer to use a browser not listed above, a majority of the features of Typepad should work as expected. However, we do not actively check functionality in unsupported browsers, and you may encounter limitations of Typepad features when using a browser not listed above.

If you are having difficulty using a Typepad feature, like the Rich Text editor, we suggest upgrading to the newest available version of a supported browser.

What about Internet Explorer?

In 2016, Microsoft stopped supporting Internet Explorer which means no security patches are being released for the browser, and users of any version of Internet Explorer are vulnerable to malicious attacks. Typepad no longer supports Internet Explorer as a result.

Notes on Mobile Browsers

  • Rich Text editing is not supported in Safari for iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

Other mobile browsers for iOS and Android also work with Typepad. However, we do not routinely test new features in these browsers, and you may experience a different behaviour in the application with an untested browser. If you encounter a problem using a mobile browser, please let us know by opening a help ticket.

Troubleshooting: To resolve any issues you may be encountering in your browser, clear your browser's cookies and cache as described in the article on How to clear browser cookies and cache.
