UPDATE: The issue with IE discussed below is fixed. But IE still sucks.
There apparently was a point in time that something went wonky on this blog. But the problem only happens to visitors using Internet Explorer (either version 6 or 7).
The problem seem to be that when you hit the back button, IE crashes.
There’s not a problem at all with my browser of choice, Firefox.
Hence the fact that I don’t know when this problem reared it’s ugly head. Francy uses IE (I know, I’m trying to convert her) but, she never uses the back button for navigation.
I can only imagine that this is highly annoying to IE and back button users. Annoying to the point, I suspect, that they may run away and never come back.
And that’s a big deal.
Problem is, I have no idea how to fix it.
Alas, I’ve yet to find anything that stops this dreaded back button IE crashing nonsense.
Until I do, you’ve got a couple of options:
1) Avoid the back button if you’re using Internet Explorer.
2) Get Firefox.
If anyone has a clue, I’m all ears. I suspect it won’t, but I’d also love it if someone could confirm for me that the back button doesn’t crash other browsers they may be using, particularly Safari or other Mac flavored browsers.
Here’s my list so far:
Firefox 3 – Check
Chrome 0.3 – Check
Safari – ???
Opera 9.6 – Check
IE 6 and 7 – FAIL and FAIL
Internet Explorer sucks.
