Weird Ie Problem


Recommended Posts

Several of my forum members including myself are having problems opening some of the threads. It seems that only people but not everyone using IE are having problems. Some are having problems at home but not at work. We are getting this message:


Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.


This thread caused my IE to shut down 3 times. This one has done it twice now but I was able to post after it closed the 1st time.


Does anyone have any idea what the problem is and how to fix it other than use a different browser?

I just checked my IE update list & have all the critical updates. I do not have some of the other ones though but didn't see anything that I would think would effect the viewing of the forum. There were no updates that were dated last week.


The shutdown doesn't happen immediately but after a few seconds of viewing the pages. There doesn't seem to be a regional problem since members from NZ, AU, CA and the US have had problems.


I've done a bit of experimenting and find that if I ignore a particular member, Baileys Mum, I don't shut down. Once I "un-ignored" and went back to the thread, I got the shut down screen. I see nothing in her avatar or signature (she uses something from Glittermaker.com). Others use Glittermaker with no problems. It does seem that the problems have occured since she's joined which was 8-17.


Can anyone figure out why her posts cause the shutdown?

I think we figured it out. Apparently, the image resizer does not like animated graphics. A couple of members were using them in their sigs and it was those threads that caused the problem. I was told it had something to do with javascript.


We've removed those banners and that seems to have solved the problem!


I have another question. I did run the virus scan and found one red one (not sure what that means!). The file is: cache/lang_cache/en/f.php


I removed my info from the code:


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '=', expecting ')' in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/forums/cache/lang_cache/en/f.php on line 4
