I have the u3 edition of Firefox on a flash drive and have no problem viewing this site with it. Seems to be just Internet Explorer and the CNET forums. slybo
Sly.. Have a "look see"...
Sorry, Mr MVP. I didn't see your post prior to "submit" :(
Thanks for the replys, I now feel better knowing I do not have a problem on my end. I will go to the Feedback forum and post. slybo
You are getting slow Grasshopper, perhaps
you got a whiff of some bug spray by mistake.
ONLY.. a senior moment.. ..
and now a 2nd senior moment, for not having seen this last post. If these moments get any closer, I'll take the bug spray!
Then we are both in trouble because
you are younger than me.
slybo..no problem here using either.........
.....AOL to connect to Forum or just IE6 when signed off from AOL. That said, there is only one IE6 on my computer and it is utilized by either method. (My AOL is ver 9.0 Optimized)
Carol., blondes don't have senior moments...............
.....they have "blonde moments" .....and I am having one now because I thought I posted this message earlier, but don't see it.
I am now having the problem with AOL along with IE7, just to let everyone know the problem is worse. I have posted on the Feedback forum along with several other people having this problem. The only way I can get to the cnet forum is with my u3 version of Firefox. Hope they get this fixed soon. slybo
slybo I am still O.K...
Perhaps the following will hold a helpful clue.
Since the AOL problem does not exist on my computer with IE6, do you think yours has to do with IE7?
My AOL 9.0 Optimized is an old version, originally the paid version (now free) which means it is widely integrated in my system......the "new AOL" is less involved......never used AOL customized browser, however.
Yes I believe it does have to do with IE7. There is a long thread about 50 post on this in the Feedback forum named IE cannot load cnet page by Toni H. They are working on the problem. slybo
People experiencing the IE "Operation abort" error pls read
This applies to Internet Explorer users only. FireFox user are not affected.
We been digging around at this bug and what I discovered is that this error only appears on discussion thread pages--not on the CNET forum directory or on the forum listing pages.
I also discovered that you will get this error only if you are not logged into CNET. So if you log in, you should not receive this error.
So to prevent this from happening, go to the CNET forum directory page here: http://forums.cnet.com , go to the top right hand corner of the page and login to CNET and check the "remember me" box. Once you've logged in you should be able to access any forum discussion thread without any issues.
Please let me know if this works for you.
Thanks and I apologize for this inconvenience. I'm hoping we will have this fixed soon.
Thanks Lee that works on both computers and IE7 and AOL. I come here and most of the time just read. I only log in when I need to post, maybe that is why a lot of people are not having this problem since they may log in each time. Thanks slybo
Lee, logging in worked for me. Tom.
