IE bug


#1

I run a Chinese WIN2000 professional (with Chinese Office XP). Obviously, my IE has a bug. I get error messages with a lot of internet pages that I try to load. One just occured when I went to the site of a German newspaper. The error message was something like (I’m translation freely from Chinese):

Error
Occured: Runtime Error
Want to debug?
line: 98
Error: Object expected
Yes - No

This ist just one of many, all with different kinds of errors in different lines. When I click on “Yes”, I am asked to select a debugger. In this case, it was: New instance of MS Script editor. When I click on “Yes”, it leads me right into the right line of the IExplorer.exe. Of course, I can’t debug, as I don’t know anything about computers.

When I click on No in the very first error message, I can access the site I was trying to access without difficulties.

What is that? Is it serious? My brother’s suggestion was to deinstall Windows and reinstall - :unamused:

Can I just go on or just I try to get this fixed? Any suggestions?

Thanks

Download the latest version of Netscape, so more MS headache :laughing:

Cheers,

Chichodude:

I had thought about that. But will Netscape run with my Chinese OS alright?

Iris,

You can disable debugging in Tools/internet options/advanced/disable script debugging

The reason for the bugs is not your IE but the code on the web site pages.

Nox:

That sounds good. I think I’ve found it in my Chinese menu.

Thanks so much!

Always click on “No”.

As stated in a previous posting, the problem is with the HTML script in the internet page you are viewing. It is not a problem with your IE software.


#7

say No, plus make sure to update your windows a lot of viruses spread that way, to update go to tools->windows update.


#8

IE doesn’t have any bugs … it is a BUG! :laughing:


#9

It’s not a BUG, its a feature! :laughing:


#10

Thanks, Nox, for your really useful answer. Hasn’t happened since.

I know that there are better solutions than Microsoft, but I’m just too much of a computer-illiterate to use anything else but good old Windows :? especially, after the only guy in my office who had some knowledge about computers left, and I haven’t found anybody else yet. So, sticking to what I know is probably the best thing I can do right now.

Thanks anyway
Iris

I gave up Netscape about 2 years ago when it started putting Chinese Characters on their side - has it grown up - I could use it with Chinese Traditional Win 98SE OK???

Go to the OPERA


#13

I used OPERA about a year ago and enjoyed it. It was more stable than IE but it didn’t sit too happily with Windows or Outllok Express. Is anyone satisfied with using the latest version?


#14

I’ve given in: I switched to Netscape. It’s a bit of a pain getting used to the UI, but I’ll make it :wink:

Luckily, it imports my IE bookmarks.

Where does Netscape store the bookmarks??? Can’t find them!

Thanks
Iris

I really enjoy Netscape 7.0. It has improved a lot of the just downright unstable, unfinished and awkward aspects of Netscape 6.0.

  • Tabs like in Opera.
  • Cleaned up buggy-ness of the Java interface.
  • Relatively fast.
  • Fully standards based with IE compatibility for the most part.
  • Included the toys of IE, like auto-complete.
  • Netscape Composer for standards-based uncomplicated HTML editing.
  • The easiest install ever for Netscape.
  • More technical control over browsing than in IE.
  • Not IE.

I now use Mozilla exclusively. It has most if not all of the features Jeremy lists. See www.mozilla.org.


#17

Actually, my question was if anybody knows where to find the Netscapre bookmarks in the system files, so I can copy them easily?

Jeremy, do you happen to know?

Thanks
Iris

Sorry, I don’t know. I’m traveling at the moment and not at my home computer. I’d have to look myself as I’ve never had a need to locate the actual file.

It’ll be somewhere much like:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\vhs0o7sd.slt\bookmarks.html

…depending of course on your login (admin, user etc.) and the profile name will be different.

Another nice thing about Netscape is that 95% of virii are written for M$ products. Have fun.
