Internet Explorer bug while loading Microsoft website!
 
I've grown accustomed to the fact that problems crop up from time to time when using Internet Explorer but that hasn't stopped me from using it. (I like Firefox, but Firefox 3 on my computer doesn't seem to work well with Google Calendar.)

Recently I've been experiencing a bug in Internet Explorer 7 (running on Windows XP) where a page loads on the screen, but as soon as the page seems to have finished loading (usually about one second later), the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message comes up as though either my computer or the web server in question is not connected to the internet.

This is kind of annoying but it happens unpredictably, probably once every 100+ page views.

I had to laugh when I saw this bug happen while loading the official Windows Update web page.

Really, now, what am I supposed to think when a Microsoft Windows machine using Microsoft Internet Explorer won't work right on loading part of the Microsoft web site?


.........

I tried to post this while using Internet Explorer, but IE kept giving me the message, 'http://www.bikeforums.net/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=199' is currently unavailable.

I hope my computer doesn't crash when I push "submit new thread".

Beware! my brother in law owns a computer repair store and he warned me (about 2 weeks ago) about a very official looking Microsoft update that comes up which is in reality a very evil virus! Just be careful is all Im saying.

First.... Get Internet Explorer 8....

Haha, I didn't know until you mentioned it that IE8 was available.

Since I'm not so happy with IE7, maybe I'll try it out.

I have that happen with Google Chome and Google's Picasaweb. You can't use Google Chrome to upload a batch of photos with Google's own Picasaweb because you need an ActiveX plug-in to do a batch upload, and ActiveX is IE only. :) I discovered this a few months ago and am still giggling about it and apparently Goocle has no plans to make a plug-in for Chrome to do batch uploading with Picasaweb... I think that's sorta weird, for Google anyway.

Oh, I apologize, let me restate:

Internet Explorer is a bug, though not quite to the extent that jsharr is.

A lot of websites (especially some municipalities) screw up with Firefox, so I end up running IE in a virtual machine. This allows me to use the site, but if there is some zero-day that allows stuff to get haxxored, as soon as I close the virtual machine window, all the changes get dumped.

If one needs to run IE, I think this is probably the best way to do things.

Happy or not, IE6 is EXTREMELY out of date, support for it is dropping quickly being as it's even worse than 7 and 8 by leaps and bounds for development.
