Neoplanet IE Script Error

I'm a Netscape user, but I occasionally use Neoplanet for certain sites that don't work with Netscape. But the "Internet Explorer Script Error" message keeps popping up. How do I fix this? I even unchecked "Display a notification about every script error" in the internet options, but it still keeps popping up & it's very annoying. Is there anything I can do? Thanx.

It's both checkboxes set just so. IE options/Advanced, Disable Script Debugging and Stop notification of script errors.

The script debugging is disabled, & the script error notification is turned off. Now what? Is there anything else I can do?

Something new may be happening. Still waiting for a reason.

You're not alone in noticing an uptick in people claiming this not to work.

Did you try flipping the checkboxs, OK your way out and back in, setting it proper and once again?

The feeling is that some new web code/exploit of IE is out. Can you share an URL to test this?

Be back later. But

Checking and unchecking isn't enough. You have to apply or OK your way out each time.

It's a microsoft thing.

I did that, but it didn't work. If you have any other ideas, let me know.

Looked at games.com

In reply to: Re:Something new may be happening. Still waiting for a reason.

The source code of the page is mostly javascript. The script error is likely due to that and not the scripting that microsoft supports...

Have you installed the SUN Java?

Well, apparently it didn't solve the problem like I thought. The script error message popped up again at www.abc.com There must be something I can do, any ideas?

May be something else entirely. .

In reply to: Re:Catch the

When I accessed the site you mentioned, I see another popup window generated immediate after the main page loads -- pretty much during. Do you also see this also and can you tell whether the error mentioned is perhaps generated by one or the other -- timine is probably critical to ascertain?

Ok, I tried something and got another IE window with a script error. BUT!

In reply to: Re:Catch the

YOU have to reveal ALL to see if you are doing something like I did.

I blocked a long list of IPs via a HOSTS file. Now that blocks some URL that was to feed a POP-UP window some code. Instead the POP-UP does occur, but now it has a script error.

And nothing here is really broken. It's exactly the effect that I would expect given what I've done with blocking the URLs.

You may have something similar, but may need to reveal if some pop-up filter, stopper or firewall is working.

Re:Ok, I tried something and got another IE window with a script error. BUT!

I do have a firewall that blocks popups. However, in Neoplanet, it asks me if I want to allow a popup. Depending if I choose yes or no, it either will or won't appear. Could that be the reason for the script error messages? I don't think it is, but who knows? If there's anything else you can think of, let me know.
