Red face ASUS BIOS Downloads Source wanted

It looks like ASUS has stopped providing BIOS downloads for my A7N8X2 motherboard.
Asus Germany used to have an archive but I can't seem to find it.

Has anyone got a source for this? This is an Award/Phoenix BIOS. Granted, the most current BIOS seems to be from 2004, so it's maybe a bit much to expect.

It is still on their website, latest for PCB revision 2.0 is 1010 (press "expand all" or "show all")

i have that issue also. the problem is that with certain browsers, it just shows a blank space where the text is supposed to be to display the bios downloads. if u dont see anything, ypu have to either try a different browser or update your browser.

Looks like the problem on the right, is NoScript not configured correctly and thus blocking required functionality, likely a JS.

nope its not. i disabled noscript and ublock origin and the bios downloads still dont show. tried on linux firefox and winxp new moon. still doesnt show.

but when i tried opera 12.17 (presto engine based NOT chromium based) and chrome, it had no issues. it must be a layout problem with asus' website and webpage design not playing nice with firefox based browsers.

I run Firefox and it's displaying correctly. It's not a Firefox issue.
It's a JS issue as RJARRRPCGP points out.
