How to fix errors on websites

by Jenny Flex / July 26, 2009 12:46 AM PDT

I have been trying for some time to remove/ fix errors from a website I am trying to view. It seems to be only on one website where this error occurs and I have contacted other people to see if this website is working for them and it is. Clearly it must be settings on my PC; I used to roll back my pc and this used to work, but it doesn't anymore!
My laptop runs on Vista and IE8, my PC tower runs on XP and IE8, both computers share the same internet connection but the same errors come up?
I have all the relevant updates from windows, adobe and java but still the problem remains.
I have even installed firefox but the website doesn't work properly on there either!
The main problem is it is unable to download 2 items (size box and basket amount box) the error is "Access Denied" and occasionally "permission denied".
I have included a link to a picture to illustrate this problem:

Can anyone help me to solve this? I have tried everything from free registry cleaners to system roll backs and still no joy!
Thanking all helpers in advance. :o)

You can't

You can't fix issues with websites not displaying correctly for the most part. All you can do is complain to the author(s) of the site and hope they will care enough to fix it.

But no one else I know is having any issues with this website, it just seems to be me! :o(

Then ask what's different.

I see you are using a very new Internet Explorer. Try firefox.

Thanks, but I have already tried this and Firefox seems to encounter the same problems. :o(

PS. I see IE is in protected mode too.

Your complaint is not a new one. But it is an error on the site after looking for the third time. Notice that IE let's you ignore those errors.

you're not the only one

This is the error I get:
Error: Permission denied for <> to call method Location.toString on <>
My prob is that if I import my photos set @ medium, they show up too small on ebay. If I import with the setting @ large, then I need to resize them, somewhere in between medium and large. I can only do one resize, then nothing happens, there is no picture, and the bottom reads done. I have the same prob in both firefox and ie. I have to hit refresh and clear the cache for an hour, then I edit the remaining 3 photos. I am at a loss on how to fix the problem.

It might help ...

if you told the details, such as:
- on what site do you get this error
- what do you do to provoke the error
- what has eBay got to do with the story

It happens @ photobucket and ebay, same problem, the photos dont load for viewing (ebay) or photobucket for editing. I did just read a solution @ firefox and was told to delete all of the exceptions under automatically load pictures. Just have to see if this is what the problem is. It also might be one of the firefox 3.5 speed-up tweeks. As far as IE, have no idea, except that its a java error for both browsers.

Java errors are difficult, if not impossible to diagnose, if you don't have the source and a debugger. Try deleting all Java SDK occurrences from Control Panel>Add/Remove and install the latest one (version 6, update 16) from Then try again.
