Yes! Same problem here on multiple machines with SM 1.1.18, but it works
correctly with IE8. You can still zoom out by moving
the slider down, but clicking on the "-" button at the bottom hasn't been
working for weeks.
Same problem recently on SM 1.1.10
Just out of curiosity, I downloaded and installed Seamonkey 1.1.18 and
proceeded to log onto Google Maps. I made no changes to
Seamonkey's default Options before bringing up the Google Maps web site.
First off, I received a message that "my web browser was not supported by Google
After browsing through the "common problems" blurbs, I then went back to the
main page and entered some search terms. The
following URL was generated:
On this page, the Zoom function wasn't displayed in graphics format but instead
was displayed as a graduated number format; using
this the Zoom functions worked.
Just thought I'd pass this tid-bit along as I would imagine that it can
probably be tweaked/loggled on somewhere in the SM
settings for users that are experiencing buglets with the graphical version.
Make sure that Java is turned on for Street view and for Zoom to work.

It appears that the output=html created the text like graduated zoom column.
If the above is reduced to

The street view can now show the street view on split above, and the map
When I moved the street view icon (man) to street suddenly the window went black
with the map in lower right corner, then expanded upper left of small map and
back to street view again but as described with split (very nice). And if
you click in
the lower right corner you change more things. Really get to zoom in on
Depending which side of the street you start from, you can almost read the
billboards on the
bus, and the billboard on the back has a face and it is blurred because if
looks like a face, but so too is some of the wording on
the bus side billboard. Some of the signs and prices on newsstand in front of
store are readable. Can't read the book covers.
No problem here. All features I see in Firefox 3.5.3 work with Firefox
188.8.131.52. Using Vista Home Basic. Perhaps you are
not blocking some things in Google or blocking the wrong things.
Adblock Plus is turned off at the status bar, so basically probably only the
hosts file is active.
I'm not signed into Google on either profile. No problems either with
an almost untouched
profile in Firefox3.5.3 either (but it's getting boring now, since there
are no differences, same kid on the bicycle).

view and Zoom do not work.
Maybe I misunderstand "zoom out of the map area view" thought at first it
was just zoom, but also checked the navigation aid
above the zoom control, and that works as well. Zoom control slider and + and
- above/below slider works. I just use drag
mouse, and use arrow keys normally. Buttons at of map all work.
