View Source

Ok. Strange thing is my view source is no longer working! Any ideas how to get it back? I use it on my OWN site and others for diagnosing problems and can't use the option from the toolbar or from right click, even on pages I KNOW have no code stopping me from looking!

 

Very frustrating!

 

No popup blocker on to stop it.... Used to open in notepad...

There's a Microsoft KB article on this issue.  "View Source" can quit working when there are too many files in your Temporary Internet Files folder.  The solution is to delete all of the files in the Temporary Internet Files folder.

 

Doesn't IE have an option to automatically delete Temporary Internet Files when you close the browser?

Yes - Select Tools, Internet Options on the Internet Explorer menu. On the "Advanced" tab, scroll all the way down to "Security". In this section is a check box for "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed".

I do use Firefox sometimes, but didn't even think of it for the view source. Great idea! My banking and several other things only work in IE I leave it as my default.

 

Will clear the temp files now. I don't clear my temp files immediately but will consider that change.

 

Greatly appreciate the heads up since I had not run into this problem before, on any of my machines.

Are you sure your bank only works in IE or does it just say this? My bank says it only works in IE and Netscape but gives you the option to login as normal but at your own risk BUT if I change the user agent Firefox sends out to that of IE 6 I don't get this message. Most times you get something like this it is only checking the useragent string and will probably work better in Firefox than IE anyway.

For work, we have a Government Travel Credit Card issued to us from CitiBank. Their website REQUIRES IE. I first tried in Firefox and got an error that states that I "must use 128-bit encryption". That's funny because I use Firefox for my personal banking w/o any problems. I even emailed CitiBank and they said that I HAVE to use IE and they have no plans to change that fact. :clapping:

And there was I thinking that Mozilla/Firefox DID support 128 bit encryption if not stronger. I'd tell Citibank that unless their IT department starts to live in the here and now you'll find a bank who's IT department will. I have found several companies who's sites are IE/NS only but if you email them they tend to apologise and add Mozilla/Firefox/Opera to the allowed list.

I totally agree. Firefox DOES support 128-bit just fine as I use it with my personal bank. I did email them and they basically told me to get stuffed. I'd love to tell them that , but since it's a "Government Credit Card" thing, there's not a lot I can do except yell. (Sometimes that feels pretty good, tho'! :) )

I hate companies that think they are better than their customers (if that makes sense). Another company I have personally had problems with recently is the main ISP of Turkey. I have had a lot of attempts at accessing my sites guestbook using an exploit that exists in older versions of it. They all came from users of ttnet.net.tr but this wonderful ISP, who appears to be connected to the goverment, does not have an abuse@, support@ or even sales@ email address and there is only a single email address to be found on their website that gets bounced back due to it getting forwarded to a now nonexistant email address.

I bank online with Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Citi (not a govt. card, so it might be a different web site) using Firefox, with no issues. But some other web sites, particularly U.S. government sites, are problematic. Dept. of Education sites like to let me get to the very end of long, multi-page online forms only to present me with a non-functioning Submit button in Firefox. :)
