On both my work laptop and home desktop (both running Win 7 x64, IE9) I've experienced lockups of Internet Explorer after 1+ minutes on the forum, and in both cases seems to happen after selecting 'edit post'. IE has to be completely terminated and restarted (task manager) in order for the site to work again, waiting doesn't help and it locks up that tab so you can't navigate away to another site either.

Worth noting -- the banner above the thread disappears when the lockup occurs so not sure if the ads on the page might be the underlying cause.

Compatibility mode seems to be helping, as I was locked up and selected it and now I'm editing this post without having to reload IE. **NOPE - as soon as I clicked out and selected 'edit post' IE locked up hard, so not even compatibility mode/refresh/stop seem to help.**

My home and work laptop are in very different computing environments, so it would seem the common denominator is MP, not on my end.

Yeah, I do tech support for a living so I have to live in the world most business users do. Chrome's gaining a lot of traction though, and I do occassionally use it.

IE is one of the programs I wish you could uninstall. In 15+ years using the Internet I think you could count the number of times I've used IE on one hand. Even back in the day I used Netscape, then switched over to Firefox several years ago. IE seems to be the cause of a lot of issues. But I dig holes for a living, not fix computers, so what do I know.....

I thought Chrome had the largest market share at this point? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_sh...

Regardless, stop using IE and you'll have less problems in general. ;-)

If the problem is occurring, I thought the MP powers that be should know. They probably want to know, even despite the IE hate, as IE still comprises a large % of market share/use like it or not.

I wasn't looking for help, I already figured out it wasn't me. This thread is a public service announcement.

In the business world there's a lot of sites and web based apps (sharepoint, for example) that require IE or run best on IE. The Chrome adoption in corporate environments is much slower as a result (although a number of people tend to have Chrome loaded and used for casual surfing, and open IE only when needed).

Thanks Kevin, I'll look into when I get home from a trip. I work on a Mac and don't do as much IE testing as I should...

Kevin,

I have to use IE8 at work, and I have had this same thing happen. It comes from cross scripting, but it can be controlled on your end.

Control Panel > Internet Options > Security Tab > Custom Level > look for "enable XSS filter" and click the "disable" radio button. That'll do it I think.

That path to the configuration might be a litte different in Win7 but you'll find it I'm sure. Try it out and let me know if it fixes the issue.

Thanks Jake (won't ask how you know this). I've made the change and will report back if it helps. :)

** No Dice, still happening. **

Seems I get an edit, then probably 50% of the time the next 'edit post' I select (where the menu is supposed to show to select 'Edit Properties') doesn't appear, the advertising banner vanishes, and IE is for all intents locked up (sometimes I can close the tab, sometimes I have to kill IE altogether). It's intermittent, but like I said about 50% of the time and eventually if I browse/participate long enough it eventually happens. Not 100% predictable but 100% replicable with enough time.

Kevin/Josh - it should be fixed, though I could not reproduce it myself. Can you confirm? Thanks!

Isn't IE on version 11? Why still using 9?

IE 10 and 11 are problematic with many sites. Newer is not always better. Most web content is written using IE9 as the current baseline. I visit a few sites that literally don't work in IE10/11. In a few cases our remote clients are not on a managed network, so they get these friggin Microsoft IE updates automatically and end up calling because they can't WORK (at all!). So we have to uninstall the newer version and set Windows Updates so it doesn't reinstall itself. Welcome to a snapshot that is my professional hell. lol

The rate of IE releases is exceeding the internet's capacity to keep up. Web developers can't/won't reprogram their entire site just because Microsoft's decided a new version of IE is due. Same is true for blogs and forums, someone has to develop compatibility updates for the web software, then get this into the hands of the website owners/admins, who then need to find time to actually apply the blog/forum software update and hope it doesn't hose the website. All because Microsoft can't stand still for more than a minute without getting an itchy trigger finger on their propaganda marketing mechanisms (IE, Microsoft Office).

IE10 is starting to be the new baseline, probably half the sites I indirectly support have announced formal IE10 compatibility. That also means, though, that half still don't and have made no formal announcements when/if they ever plan to.

Did I mention there's web based Microsoft server features (like Remote Web Workplace) that don't actually work properly with their OWN NEWER BROWSERS?! Left hand and right hand not even in the same solar system.

Nick, so far so good. I edited this post a bunch of times and so far not a blip. :)

For what it's worth, I've been having issues using Firefox.

The loading circle on the tab keeps spinning, saying "transferring data from badge.facebook.com" or "Transferring data from mountainproject.com" and doesn't get anywhere. Not a problem in most cases, except the Tick Breakdown page remains white and displays nothing.

I was having the same/similar problems with IE11 yesterday. when I try to edit a post, I get a message that MP is running a script that is taking longer than expected....
