People's comments on news articles

by frizzo100 / November 18, 2012 2:23 PM PST

Just wondered if anybody knows the reason I can no longer see the comments at the bottom of news articles. I know there are comments because it will actually tell me how many there are, but when I click to see them, it says windows cannot display the page. The page is actually displayed just not the portion where the comments are usually located.

I know it has to be in the browser or security settings because windows forced me to do an update the other day and this is when the problems started to happen.

Clarification Request
If you "know" it is the browser ...

or security settings why don't you tell us the browser you use, the Operating System you use whether or not you have Java and shockwave and flash players installed. A URL to a couple of those specific sites you are experiencing the problem on would help too.

We try but we aren't usually able to read minds when y'all simply think about things.

This is why, when you initiated your post there was a note at the top of the page that reads as follows:

More info

The browser is internet explorer 9 and the operating system is windows vista and I do have java, shockwave and flash players installed. www.stltoday.com is the main site I'm having problems with. It will also do it at www.thetelegraph.com. You can look at just about any article and at the bottom of the page there is a link that states how many comments have already been made. You must hit that link to continue. This is when it tells me the website is unable to display the page.
